The torque limiter is activated when the setting torque exceeds the calibration torque. During the torque peak limiting phase,the clutch continues to transmit power. The clutch is useful as a safety device tp protect against load peaks and to start machines with high rotational inertia. It is recommended to ensure that the setting value is correct to avoid excessive heating of the friction discs (insufficient setting) or clutch seizing (excessive seting).
Friction clutches may become hot during use.
Do not touch!
Keep the area around the friction clutch clear of any material which could catch fire and avoid prolonged slipping.
