Hi Craig

I also searched  where I can get this motor.
You can get the motor from Amel. It costs about 750 €. It is only possible to order 10 motors from Emerson but you will have to wait many weeks an it will cost about 550 €/motor. I did not find any other supplier.

The electromagnetic brake on the Main Sail Furling Motor on my Amel 54 has failed.  Water accumulated in the housing and the brake no longer engages with 24VDC.  Amel has told me the motor is obsolete and Emerson Electric has confirmed the same and says not parts are available.  Has anyone sourced a replacement brake assembly?

The first thing to do is (if you have not already done so) is to take it to a specialist electric motor repair facility and hope. I have been amazed at the repairs that can be effected on motors that I have taken in here in Malta including the sea water damaged one I had repaired a couple of weeks ago.

I have done that and the motor and brake were refurbished.  The brake, however, now requires 35VDC before it will engage.

Thanks for the reply.
