Is that a brake on the end of the motor shaft or an encoder?
Both.

The brake is under the fan cover, that encoder shaft could never stop that motor.

The motor is a 230/460 dual voltage 3phase; ain't gonna work on 120V single phase. The encoder is rated 480V, it ain't gonna like 120V single phase either.

If you look closely at the motor you can see that the cover on the end is extended. The brake is likely external to the actual motor housing...

Just to clarify the brake just the brake on 120. Not motor.

Yes the tag shows original configuration.

The link shows the configuration differences available inside the lead box cover.

The brake controller can be fed multiple voltages. As needed.

Or. I could be wrong.

I have some pictures and wiring diagram at the shop I can show.

Not sure if there is a bolt or screw to manually open the brake to take it out of the equation.

The motor shows 480 and 220 volt configuration options

I am basing this on the experience recently with this type of setup.

The one I have runs 480 on motor and 120 on the brake.

It has an inline gearbox and connects to a right angle gearbox.

Just options. And lively discussion.

I would expect the brake to be 120 also.

You fellows can carry on about encoders and voltages if you like. I for one wanted to do away with the brake and it seems I found a simple way to do so. Removal of the cover revealed three studs with nuts. As I began to loosen the nuts I noticed the shaft was easy to turn. It seems the nuts are an adjustment that load compression springs that act against friction plates. I surmised all this from a tiny peek through the rubber boot so I could be wrong.

Default Electric Motor Accessory, What is It?

Well done.

And you still have a brake option.

Make sure you gasket the motor flange so the oil won't leak out.

So...inquiring minds want to know what project is this, are their pictures
