Backstop Clutches

Backstop clutches incorporate a standard FND 400 complete unit clutch that allows rotation of a mechanism, in one direction only, while the connected momentum lever stops motion past the ground location. These backstop designs are used for backstopping (or holdback) applications, and to prevent any rotation in the reverse direction at all times. Although the clutch normally overruns, it is referred to as a holdback or backstop. The main applications that use backstop clutches are conveyors, gear reducers and similar equipment.
