All maintenance providers that service Montgomery HR Series escalators are encouraged to replace existing ER-1225 and ER-825 pin drive brakes with the recently developed spline brake replacements.
- More Robust
- More Reliable
- Longer Lasting
- Vibration Resistant
- Interchangeable in Form, Fit, and Function
- Available With or Without Sensors
The permanent magnet spline brake is designed to gradually stop the escalator and hold it stationary under full load. This brake includes a closed-loop brake circuit within a solid state and/or microprocessor controller and is designed to meet current ASME – A17.1 Code deceleration rate requirements, and operates in conjunction with a velocity feedback encoder and/or tachometer.
The component parts of the spline and pin armatures are considered interchangeable in form, fit and function; therefore the existing tachometer and/or encoder and brake control system may be reused. The brake voltage must be adjusted per the installation instruction to achieve the proper armature setting.
Both the ER-1225 12″ Spline Brake and the ER-825 8″ Spline Brake are available with or without sensors.
We gave our parts photographer, Brian, a challenge. “Make us a spooky Halloween video.”
He did not disappoint. 🙂

Our very own Mario Jones and Jessica Gross recently had the pleasure of presenting at the October 3rd meeting of the Chicago Elevator Association (CEA) in Oak Brook, IL. The CEA was founded in 1911, and is the industry’s longest running elevator association.
As a participant of CEA, KONE Spares has the opportunity to network with Chicagoland service companies and other suppliers. The CEA’s monthly meetings provide the opportunity to hear informative industry news and listen to guest speakers from all over the industry.
At the October 3rd meeting Mario Jones gave a presentation on Life Cycle Management, and the KONE Spares process for supporting products even after components have become obsoleted. The highlight of the presentation was a discussion of Miprom 21 upgrades and the new Safety Upgrade solution that the LCM team has developed for KONE Spares, and how the KONE Spares sales team plans to support these initiatives. Mario was also able to assure the group that Miprom 21 will continue to be supported for some time.
