Made possible by TSUBAKI's extensive experience in mechanical powertransmission, the cam used in BR-HT Cam Clutch offers a unique cross section that provides positive mechanical engagement only when needed.
Otherwise, the Cam Clutch rotates freely with absolutely no mechanical contact in the clutch mechanism. The result is a greatly increased service life compared to conventional types.
Lift Off Type
BR-HT assures not only the immediate backstop function under the high torque, but also the long service life by the "Lift-Off" design. In addition installation on the high speed shaft with low torque enables selection of more compact models with resulting lower cost.
A more economical design
BR-HT series features a simple design in which the Cam Clutch mechanism is incorporated in a cage between standard dimension inner and outer bearing races. This allows the Cam Clutch to be easily and economically integrated into a wide variety of mechanical systems.

2. Structure of BR-HT Series
3. Backstop applications for high-speed overrunning
Fig.1: Inner race only turning
When the Cam Clutch is stationary, the cam locks the inner and outer races together. When the inner race (load side) overruns at a high speed, the cam disengages by releasing from the inner race (fig.1).
Fig.2: Inner and outer race locked and turning
When the inner race stops, the cam rotates back into an engaged position. If the inner race tries to rotate in the reverse direction, the cams then serve as prop between the anchored outer race and inner race to prevent the reverse rotation and provide backstopping.
