Holding Brake Definitions

Method Description
Standard Dynamic Shunt Coil Each of the 3 Motor power transistor circuits in the EZ-Qube are internally shunted to ground after the module has performed its configured deceleration function. The mechanical inertia of the gearbox and the magnetic resistance of the motor rotor provides the holding force. This is the MDR industry standard holding braking method
Free Spin Each of the 3 Motor power transistor circuits in the EZ-Qube are internally opened after the module has performed is configured deceleration function. The mechanical inertia of the gearbox provides the only holding force
Active Servo When the EZ-Qube module has performed is configured deceleration function, it remembers the position of the motor rotor and provides active power to the motor coils to maintain that roller position
