Electromagnetic ClutchIt is used for the counter and the pump unit and transmit the engine rotation power to the pump.

MMC-Electromagnetic Clutch

・High reliability and High torque
・Various kinds and fits to every small fishing vessels.
・One switch enables the clutch operation.
・The rotation direction of the clutch can be selected.
・High durability to the vibration and shock with a special plate spring.
・Better heat dissipation and heavy duty ones.

Electromagnetic clutch is the device to transmit the rotation power of engines as the driven power of the generator and the hydraulic pump and so on by controlling the electromagnetic power.
This can be widely used for the hydraulic pump unit and the counter assembly.

I Major Calculation formula of clutch and brake

  1. Calculation of a torque

    • T=9550・P/n=7017・PS/n
  2. Calculation of the average kinetic friction torque

    • 1) n the case of no load torque
    • 2) In the case of the load torque
      Start acceleration Td=(J・n/9.55tae)+Tl
      Deceleration stop Td= (J・n/9.55tab)-Tl
  3. Calculation of operate time

    • 1) n the case of no load torque.
    • 2) In the case of the load torque
      Start acceleration tae=2π・J・n/60(Td-Tl)=J・n/9.55(Td-Tl)
      Deceleration stop tab=2π・J・n/60(Td+Tl)=J・n/9.55(Td+Tl)
  4. Calculation of work

    • 1) In the case of no load torque.
    • 2) In the case of the load torque
      Start acceleration Ee=(J・n2/182)・(Td/Td-Tl)
      Deceleration stop Eb=(J・n2/182)・(Td/Td+Tl)
  5. Calculation of the power

    • 1) when there is no load torque.
    • 2) In the case of the load torque
      Start acceleration Pe=(J・n2/182)・(Td/Td-Tl)・(Nc/60)
      Deceleration stop Pb=(J・n2/182)・(Td/Td+Tl)・(Nc/60)
  6. Calculation of a life span

    • L=V/w・Ee(orEb)=Et/ Ee(orEb)
