Re-engagement occurs when either the driving side is reversed, or the driven side is advanced. Pawl ‘F’ engages the cage plate ‘E’ and rotates it until the drive balls are re-seated. Resetting must be done at low speed to permit the engaging mechanism to function properly in either direction and to prevent potential damage.
The resetting can be done manually or automatically by slowly inching the motor in reverse.
The Series 400 comes standard as a Rapid Reset (RR) style Torque Limiter. This gives the following maximum angles of rotation to re-engage:
Synchronous Reset (SR) designs are also available and must be specified at the time of ordering. These reset in a constant angular position.
