1. A low-speed brake apparatus for an escalator, comprising:
a brake sprocket installed on a driving shaft, wherein step sprockets engaged with step chains and a driving sprocket are installed on the driving shaft and a driving chain inserted into a rotation shaft of a driving motor rotates the driving sprocket so that a step is driven;
a follower sprocket connected to the brake sprocket by a brake chain in such a way as to operate in conjunction with the brake sprocket;
an electronic clutch regulating connection between the follower sprocket and a transmission gear;
a brake motor having a center shaft rotated by the transmission gear;
a plurality of switching means connected to a plurality of windings which is a stator of the brake motor; and
a controller for supplying an operation pulse to selected switching means.
