Force Control Industries' two-speed drive package can be added to the back of a standard motor brake to provide inching speeds of 5:1 to 60:1 at full torque, preventing torque loss and heat problems. Features include a brake motor with built-in drive to provide low-speed control with continuous high-torque and high-speed capability as well as a simple mechanical drive not affected by electrical issues. Available as explosion proof and marine duty, the enclosed units are suitable for dusty, dirty, or wet environments on transfer or lift systems, rotary components, cranes, and winches. The Posidyne two-speed drive is air- or hydraulically actuated and consists of a high-speed motor connected through a spring-set friction stack operating as a clutch and a brake, while the MagnaShear features brakes actuated by an electrical coil instead of an air piston.

Thermal imaging data obtained from a FLIR high-performance camera shows that the expected turbine output temperature is approximately 285°C when the helicopter is in forward flight. However, during hover operations a steady state temperature of about 343°C will be reached.
