Large magnetic particle brakes and clutches from Placid Industries Inc. enable tension and torque control.

• Slip torque is precise, smooth, and silent • Rated torque from 4 to 300 lb-ft • Adjustable slip characteristics are useful for unwinding and rewinding webs, load simulation applications, performance and life testing of gearmotors and mechanisms • Controlling input dc current varies load torque • Torque independent of slip rpm • Optional electric fan increases heat dissipation
