EDDIE CURRENT BRAKES EFFICIENCY TEST
INTERSEL has been servicing ELMAGCO Eddie Current Brakes for over 2 decades in the Middle East as the Authorized service center for ELMAGCO Brakes.
Eddie current brakes help slow down moving objects. Unlike friction brakes, Eddie current brakes work on the principle of Electrical Eddie Currents.
Eddie currents are generated in moving objects when the moving object passes over a magnet in very close proximity. Generation of a repulsive magnetic force is seen induced in the metallic object passing over the magnet. This field generated in the moving object is repulsive hence creating a ‘slow’ down process opposing the magnet’s force flux. Kinetic energy lost in slowing down the object is gained in turn by the Eddie currents as heat.
