Miniature Slip Clutch Type B is designed to operate either with one spindle unsupported or as a link between the power source and the mechanism to provide overload protection. Damage to delicate or sensitive equipment may be avoided by setting the torque level just above the required power to drive the equipment.These clutches are friction devices which may be re-set to a specific torque level by an adjustment ring. They may be used to protect against overload between the drive and driven components, to absorb inertia in intermittent or reversing applications, or to provide continuous braking. The overload or breaking level may be varied by the knurled adjustment ring, which, once set, will continue to perform at that level. In applications where continuous braking is being applied, care should be taken not to allow the surface temperature to exceed 80 C.
