# Electromechanical brakes

1. Dec 14, 2015

hello i have a system consisting of bi directional rotating shaft.i would like to integrate a brake in the system for stopping the shaft.
i m interested in an electromechanical brake in thomas linear compnay's catalogue(http://www.thomsonlinear.com/en/product/SB-70B24-E32S).
They have mentioned that the brake has uni directional control.

uni means one, so the unit can only brake in one direction. ie it can apply an anti clockwise braking torque but not a clockwise braking torque (or vice versa).
