500i Series Drive Break

Drive Breaks are used at the point where driven sections of drive tube are separated to be driven by another motor.

In double trolley applications, a Drive Break Assembly incorporates a free spinning tube between two drive breaks, or an open section with no drive tube. This allows the leading trolley to be driven through the drive break assembly by the trailing trolley. Just as the trailing trolley enters the drive break assembly the leading trolley, having been pushed on a new driven section, pulls the trailing trolley through the drive break.
