Eddy Current Brakes

HOME / Applications / Actuators, Solenoids & Electromechanical / Eddy Current Brakes

Eddy current brakes are based on the braking torques (forces) generated by induced Eddy Currents inside an electrical conductor by electromagnetic induction. Stationary electric conductor immerged inside a time-varying magnetic flux and/ or a moving electrical conductor inside a static magnetic flux will lead to the creation of eddy currents in this conductor.
