ROBA®-quatrostop – the extremely compact multiple circuit brake

12.08.2011
Double the safety without doubling the braking torque

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.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
