    These slack cable style switches are equipped with a positive safety lock.  Once actuated, they cannot be accidentally reset causing dangerous equipment to restart. 

     

    The cable may be extended in either or both directions with no changes required in the internal mechanism.  There is one electrical connection inside eliminating the double electrical connections typically required in two ended units employing a separate micro switch for cable in each direction. 

     

    The actuation force required is simply adjusted in the field by attaching the cable to any one of the three holes provided on the switch actuating arm.

     

    The standard construction of these switches consists of the corrosion resistant aluminum housing complete with stainless steel hardware, red powder coated actuation handle and stainless steel actuation shaft. 

     

    These switches are usually installed with cable running in both directions from the crank type actuating arm. The cable should be supported by eyebolts every 10 feet to ensure that the weight of the cable alone will not actuate the switch. 

     

    • Recommended cable length is 100 feet maximum on each end.
    • Can be mounted in any position

    A pull on the cable at any point will rotate the red actuation arm 60 degrees. The actuation arm will end in a position that is easily seen from a distance, thus identifying the actuated unit. Two spring loaded detents riding on a hardened steel cam provide resistance to arm rotation.  When the actuation force overcomes this resistance the assembly rotates 60 degrees and is locked in place by the detents. Affixed to the rotating shaft is a cam mechanism which actuates up to two micro switches during rotation.  The micro switches are held in the actuated position by the detents.



     

    WARNING - DANGER

    These products should only be used where point-of-operation guarding devices have been properly installed & maintained so that appropriate OSHA and ANSI B11.1 regulations & standards are met.  Misapplication of the products on machinery lacking effective point-of operation safeguards can cause serious injury to the operator of that machinery.

    These taut cable switches are equipped with a positive safety lock and broken cable option.  Once actuated, they cannot be accidentally reset causing dangerous equipment to restart.  The broken cable option feature ensures actuation even if the cable is broken or cut. 

     

    There is one electrical connection inside eliminating the double electrical connections typically required in two ended units employing a separate micro switch for cable in each direction.  This style has extension springs (included with switch), attached to opposite ends of the pull cable, which maintain the cable under constant tension. 

     

    The switch is mounted so that it is centered between the end springs which minimizes any cable length changes caused by temperature changes.  The operating handle is held in the center vertical position with the internal switch in a normally closed condition.  If the cable is pulled or breaks, the handle rotates to release the switch lever.  The alarm signal is generated for either condition.  The operating handle must be manually reset back to the center position after the cause has been corrected. 

     

    The standard construction of these switches consists of the corrosion resistant aluminum housing complete with stainless steel hardware, red powder coated actuation handle and stainless steel actuation shaft.

  • ExplProofFlagStatusIndicators

    Due to their rugged construction these heavy duty slack cable style switches withstand even harsh environments and conditions.  They provide personnel with immediate positive shutdown of equipment. 

     

    The switches may be ordered with right hand, left hand or dual cable pull.  Once the cable is properly connected to the switch a pull of approximately ½” will actuate the switch and trip the flag arm down locking the switch and flag arm in the actuated position.  Unit is reset by returning the flag arm to the normal up position. 

     

    • The standard actuation (pull) force of these switches is 16 lbs
    • Recommended cable length is 100 feet maximum per end
    • Can be mounted in any position

    The cable must be supported every 10 feet to ensure that the weight of the cable alone will not actuate the switch. 

     

    The standard construction of these switches consists of the corrosion resistant aluminum housing complete with stainless steel hardware and red epoxy painted heavy duty flag(s). 

     

    Switches are available with a warning light that may be wired to indicate actuation.  This permits easy identification of actuated switches in areas where visual identification is difficult.

     

    FT is the value of force, along the cable, which trips the switch.

    FO is the value of force, applied by the operator perpendicular to the cable, which trips the switch.

    SD is the distance between the cable supports.

    ST is the distance the cable is deflected at the time of tripping.

    **ST is in addition to any slack "droop" req'd for set-up.
