V317 Power Supply is a brand new VULKAN product, smaller and lighter, able to control any DC electromagnetic brake within its maximum current range. V317 current output operates in a closed loop system that allows better performance control and faster response of electromagnetic brakes, making operation safer and more agile.

The electromagnetic brakes generally operate on two different levels of DC current to open the brake (a current peak, or call current) and hold the brake opened (economic DC current). The call current time is defined so that it is enough to open (release) the brake, considering also the rated air gap and braking force. The DC current levels, call current time and several other settings are available through parameters, which can be set according to brake characteristics.

The output DC current to open and close the brake is produced by closing a dry contact. It is AC/DC drives with a fully digital control system to drive electromagnetic brakes.
