Safety Coupling

Safety Coupling is the most optimistic solution to meet both purposes
of power transmission and overload prevention.

Operating Principles (How it works)

If torque is overloaded (exceeded the disengagement set value), balls fixed on the V pocket-shaped ball plate push the ball guide while getting out of the ball plate. And then idle operation occurs between the coupling section and the main hub, which enables to mechanically cut off motion.

Additional Sensor Attachment
  • You may grasp how far the ball guide is pushed through an additional limit switch or a proximity sensor attached on the bottom of ball guide. This means you can link it to the driving part (e.g. motor etc.) and stop the linked part as well. (Please refer to “Dimensions / Performance” tables for more details)
  • In case a proximity sensor is installed, make sure the proximity sensor senses the location of ball guide after making idle operation status by manually putting load on safety coupling.
Disengagement Torque Set-up Guide
  • Fasten the adjusting nut by ticks on the main hub according to disengagement torque information by each spring pressure gauge.
  • The harder fastening, the higher slip torque.
  • The margin of error (between disengagement torque to actual slip torque) is smaller than ±10%.
