AC motor brake

Posted on Aug 13, 2012

A shot of direct current will instantly stop any ac power tool motor. Switch Si is a center-off, one side spring return. With Si on, ac will be fed to the motor and the motor will run. To brake the motor, simply press Si down and a quick shot of dc will instantly stop it. The switch returns to the center off position when released
