Electromagnetic clutches are an easy way to engage or disengage a mechanical device such as a pump or fan and transmit or produce a force or a flow.
Put simply, Electromagnetic clutches can disconnect and connect power without stopping the power device driving them.

For example, a Fishing Trawler may require a hydraulic pump drive or an alternative to a gearbox mounted PTO in small tow trucks.
Clutches are relatively easy to install and incorporate into an existing drive system, they will need some additional support bracketry as well as a longer drive belt. The supply and control of DC voltage through a fused switch.
