Safety in Automation: Development of the Brake Thruster
In principle, everything that is moved also needs to be slowed down. Safety has always been the single most important factor in this regard. As the last link in the chain of safety measures, the braking system and the corresponding brake thruster ensures the safety of man and machine, even in the event of a power failure. Increasing safety standards demands almost complete condition monitoring of the systems, including early wear detection to prevent unplanned system standstills. This trend has had a significant impact on the development of brake thrusters and it has resulted in increased availability and reliability.
