BSFH 500 Series Brake Caliper
The BSFH 500 safety, spring-applied, hydraulically-released brake family includes the following single, dual or quad piston models to meet specific customer performance and footprint requirements:
- BSFH 500 DS
- BSFH 500 MS
- BSFH D500 DS
- BSFH D500 MS
These safety brakes can be used for a range of different purposes, such as parking and emergency stopping in case of power failure. The brake spring packs are sized to suit the individual specific braking requirements of the application. A range of indicators are available as accessories and can be fitted to the brake to detect and monitor the status of the brake functions, such as: brake pad wear, brake on/off status and brake lining temperature.
Dual-spring and quad piston versions consist of two caliper halves designed for mounting on a bracket. These brakes have two sets of spring packs making the intervals between required brake adjustments longer compared to a mono-spring type brake.
Mono-spring brake versions consist of three parts: a caliper half-fitted with a spring pack(s) and a passive caliper mounted on a base plate suitable for side mounting. The brake caliper assembly is free floating on guide shafts allowing for axial disc movement.
