The safety caliper type SHD1 is the smallest and the most compact of
its range. This brake meets the exacting requirements of wind turbines
rotor braking applications.

Robust construction and simplicity of operation bring to this caliper a
high reliability.

It allows an easy mounting and maintenance, and insures maximum
efficiency in the most severe environmental conditions.

The modular design of the SHD1 caliper enables standardisation on
multiple installations: availability in a large range of torque and possible
association with different disc thicknesses and diameters.
