Specifications and User Guide

ASSEMBLY
1. Insert the desired number of magnets into the Eddy Current Brake.
2. The Eddy Current Brake connectors swivel to allow 4 mm of height adjustment when installed in a cart. When the DTS stamp on the connector is upright, it is set at the correct height for our DTS carts such as the Standard Cart or the Plunger Cart. When the GDX stamp on the connector is upright, it is set at the correct height for our Go Direct Sensor Cart.
3. Remove both collision tabs from one end of the cart. Insert the Eddy Current Brake into the exposed slots.
