Magnetic Particle Clutches

Placid magnetic particle clutches are used for precise torque and tension control. Torque is proportional to input current, and independent of RPM.  Rated torque: Small series: 0.3 to 130 lb.-inches; Large series: 15 to 300 lb.-feet.

Popular Applications: providing adjustable slip torque for rewinding rolls of film, fabric, and wire; applying a variable torque load for load simulation and torque limiting (capping), and for adjustable soft starts.
