Eaton GH505 Series

Eaton GH505 Series

The Eaton GH505 magnetic operated shoe brake is electrically released and spring set. Braking force is applied when power is removed from the coil. Brake wheels are cast of ductile iron specially formulated to withstand the effects of frequent mill duty brake operation, and the brake coil is designed for operation with direct current power. GH505 are designed to meet all AIST and NEMA standards for shoe brakes.

  • The “Over-the-wheel” design divides braking force between the lower pivots and pull rod while transmitting braking force to the outer shoe lever. This results in braking action being evenly spread over both shoes, providing maximum stopping power with minimum wear.
  • Complete environmental and long reliable service life made possible by a single encapsulated coil design in stainless steel housing.
  • Specially processed ductile iron brake wheels resistant to high temperatures associated with frequent braking operations, eliminate scored wheel surfaces that usually result from wheel particles lodging in the brake linings.
  • Shoe adjustment indication by sounding pins on upper sides of armature make adjustment easy and accurate.
  • NEMA 4 Enclosure
  • Riveted brake shoe linings
  • Manual release lever
  • Special brake wheel dimensions
  • Rectifier panel
  • Visual torque measurement gauge
