Eide EC Centrifugal Safety Brake
Eide EC centrifugal brakes control the rate of descent in the absence of motorisation and in case of holding-brake failure. They prevent uncontrolled acceleration of the load. Its working principle is the centrifugal force. This force acts on masses that rub a static drum.
As the centrifugal force is an exponential function of the speed, a balance between load power during the descent and braking power always occurs. The load will be maintained by balancing speed up to the stop or until a parking brake acts. Consequently, centrifugal brakes are not locking brakes but retaining brakes.
