Doubled safety using redundancy also means double the braking torque on systems with two brake circuits – an enormous strain for all components. The brakes manufacturer from Mauerstetten in Germany, mayr® power transmission, has solved this problem by developing a new, multiple circuit stage brake, the ROBA®-quatrostop.
The new, redundant ROBA®-quatrostop with its four individual brake circuits brakes gently and exceptionally quietly.
The new safety brake for film, theatre and stage facilities is redundant without doubling the braking torque. This brakes system brakes gently, is gentle on attachment parts and saves costs through easier connection constructions. The ROBA®-quatrostop stage brake runs extremely quietly. It has four individual brake circuits, which are integrated into a compact, extremely short brake block. Three brake circuits together produce the required braking torque. The fourth, redundant circuit ensures the necessary safety. The braking torque is therefore only increased by 33 percent. All braking circuits can be switched and tested individually.
The ROBA®-quatrostop is an electromagnetic, spring applied safety brake. After switching off the power, on power failure or on EMERGENCY OFF, it allows reliable and safe stops in any position. The compact design ensures simple handling and installation. The working air gap is set at the manufacturing plant and need not be re-adjusted during operation. This means that functional errors due to operating and adjustment errors are prevented in advance by the design.
For maximum system and personal safety, each brake circuit is equipped with a release monitoring system for functional control. Stage brakes from the construction series ROBA®-quatrostop are mainly maintenance-free. The maintenance work is limited to the inspection of friction linings, which are extremely wear-resistant and achieve an extremely high lifetime.
Safety does not permit compromises. mayr® power transmission are international leaders in the development, production and implementation of safety brakes for theatre, film and stage facilities. Extremely quiet-running stage brakes by mayr® power transmission make a daily appearance at numerous events in very different locations all around the world. Based on 40 years of expertise in safety brakes, wide field experience in many thousands of applications and a very wide product range, the company provides technically perfect, economical and extremely low-noise solutions.Chr.

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
