Carbon brush 6.8
Carbon brush 6.8 (6.35mm by 8mm) for ZEPHYR edger (1998 to 2006)
Connection: U-shaped spade
A U-shaped carbon brush, or sometimes called a "U-shaped carbon brush", is a variant of carbon brushes used in electric motors. U-shaped carbon brushes are designed to provide a more stable and reliable electrical connection than traditional carbon brushes.
Here's what they're used for:
1. Electrical connection: U-shaped carbon brushes provide a solid and stable electrical connection between the carbon itself and the motor's electrical system. The U-shaped lug is usually made of a solid conductive material that enables the electrical current to be transferred efficiently.
2. Reliability: Brushes with a U-shaped lug offer greater connection reliability than traditional brushes. The U-shaped design creates a wider and more stable contact surface, reducing the risk of electrical connection disturbances due to vibration, shock or motor movement.
3. Durability: U-shaped brushes are often more durable than traditional brushes, as the U-shaped design is more resistant to wear. This increased durability can extend the life of the brushes and reduce the frequency of replacement.
4. Ease of replacement : When brushes with a U-shaped lug need to be replaced, the U-shaped connection facilitates the process. Simply remove the old brushes and replace them with new ones with the same U-shaped lug.
These U-shaped brushes are commonly used in a variety of electric motors where a reliable electrical connection is essential to ensure correct motor operation. They help maintain a stable power supply, reduce downtime and minimise maintenance problems.
