The Series 320 Torque Limiter Clutch has been designed to meet the emerging need for an economical, compact and reliable safety clutch. The optimised design provides a robust, backlash free clutch which will protect equipment from the damaging effects caused by overloading a drive train.
In the event of an overload, the drive balls are designed to roll out of their respective seats producing an axial movement in the cover plate. A proximity sensor or limit switch can be used to detect this movement, sending a signal to master control or a PLC.
Re-engagement is automatic once the overload is removed. The Series 320 can be provided in a timed (synchronised) or un-timed (rapid reset) versions.
The Autogard Series 320 is designed to meet the most exacting needs of modern machinery.
