Fail Safe Brakes

Fail Safe Brakes

Fail safe brakes are used for specific applications that require the brakes to stop motion in the event of a loss of power or perhaps a fault with the variable frequency drive or PLC in a drive system.

Fail safe brake systems are commonly used for holding or e-stop applications such as:

  • Overland or Downhill Conveyor Systems
  • Mining, Construction, or Oil Derrick Winches
  • Container Crane Main Hoist, Boom Hoist & Trolley Travel Service and Emergency Brakes
  • Steel Mill Rolling & Coiling Systems, as well as Overhead Crane Hoist, Bridge and Trolley Travel Brakes
  • Draw Bridge and Bascule Bridge Service Brakes
  • Radar Antenna Azimuth and Elevation Positioning Applications
  • Elevator and Escalator Applications


Hindon has a variety of fail safe brake mechanisms and types available that are designed to prevent a potentially catastrophinc “runaway” situation in the event of a power failure or major fault in a control system.
