  10. What is DC Injection Braking Used On?

    When we discuss DC injection brake systems, it’s best to compare it to friction braking to understand how current-braking works. For example, friction braking systems apply physical contact to the rotor of a small AC motor or other machinery motor application to slow it or stop it entirely. This braking method is similar to how the brake-pads on most bicycles function. DC injection braking, on t…Read More
