The Hercus Torque Limiting Coupling is an adjustable friction drive combined with a chain coupling when set prevents over loading. When the preset load is reached the limiter will slip disengaging the drive, the moment the load falls below the preset, the limiter will re-engage and will resume driving.
The coupling consists of a torque limiter fitted with a plate sprocket and a mating hub sprocket, hollowed out to clear the body of the torque limiter. The two sprockets are connected by a duplex chain to provide the drive
