  • Cable/RopeOperated Switches with Broken Cable Detection 1

    Features/Applications
    The following switches are ”taut cable” style with positive break and positive transfer features which make them particularly competent for Emergency Stop applications as well as ordinary circuit control.

    They are only offered in manual reset configuration with 2 NO + 2 NC gold plated contacts. The housing is made from high quality die-cast aluminum and painted with a yellow dry powder paint. Set-up position is easily attained without removal of the cover. Cable is stretched tightly until shaft end is flush with indicator hub end. Switch will trip and latch if the cable breaks, comes loose or is pulled. Blue booted reset button is pushed to reset contacts back to their normal operating configuration. These switches have been designed to reduce “nuisance tripping” from cable expansion and stretch often associated with taut cable switches.

    The mounting pattern coincides with other standard REES cable switches. Additional mounting holes are provided to match competitive devices. Direction of pull is field convertible except part numbers 04962-101 & -201 due to use of tamper resistance screws for cover attachment. Three 1/2" NPT conduit openings are provided. Maximum recommended cable length is 200 feet with a maximum interval support of 10 feet. These switches are available pre-wired with 10 or 12 pin connectors and red 24 volt indicator lights as listed below. The maximum mechanical life of these devices is 250,000 operations.

    These switches are typically found on process applications such as conveyors, transfer machines or assembly lines within the automotive, machine tool, foundry and pharmaceutical industries. Switches are rated NEMA 12/13; IP 65. Their rugged construction and long term reliability make them well suited to function within various industrial environments and pharmaceutical industries.

  • Rope Operated Sequence Switch 1

    Features/Applications
    These switches are “slack cable” style with ‘Slow-Make’ contacts. The switches are not ‘Positive Transfer’ and they do not latch in any position. They should NOT be used for any Emergency Stop applications. The action of these devices is that when the switch actuating arm is pulled by a cable the switch contacts will change state, that is, the NO will be closed and the NC will go open. When the force on the cable is removed from the actuator arm, spring pressure will return it to its normal position, while the contacts are held in position through a ratchet mechanism. The next time the cable is pulled, the action is repeated with the contacts returned to their original state. The housing and cover are made from a glass filled black polycarbonate. The mounting base and double end actuator arm are die cast from a high strength zinc alloy. All exterior steel components are made from #303 Stainless. Switches are provided with two 1/2 NPT conduit openings. The total maximum cable length recommended is 200 feet with a maximum interval support of 10 feet. The life of these devices is in excess of 150,000 mechanical and 1,000,000 electrical operations. Each captive terminal on the replaceable block will accept (2) #14 AWG stranded wires and the contact are gold plated to eliminate high resistance tarnishing. These devices can be found on various conveyor installations as well as other stations that require the “pull-on”, “pull-off” function that this being provides. Their rugged construction and long term reliability make these cable switches extremely well suited to function within various industrial environments.
    Note: The only difference between the 04945-000 and the 04945-500 is the relationship of the conduit entrances to the mounting feet, which is a 90 degree rotation.

  • Rope Operated Switch 1

    Features/Applications
    These switches are a slack cable style with Slow-Make - Slow-Break contacts. The switches are not ‘Positive Break’ or ‘Positive Transfer.’ These devices should NOT be used for any Emergency Stop application. The function of these switches is such that a device that is listed as NO uses a NC contact Block which is held open by a spring in the switch body. Pulling of the ring eye collapses that spring, allowing the Contact Block to close and actuate the circuit it is connected to. Releasing of the rope then allows the spring to expand thereby opening the contacts. The reverse is true for a NC listed switch. The contact cavity of the switch has provision for the addition of one more contact block. Each captive terminal on the replaceable contact block will accept (2) #14 AWG stranded wires and the contacts are gold plated to eliminate high resistance tarnishing. The life of these switches is in excess of 1,000,000 mechanical operations. The Momentary version of this light to medium duty switch can most often be found being used with a rope hanging down for control of an overhead door. The maintained style requires that resetting take place at the switch so access must be considered when installing it. The housing and cover are molded from high impact glass-filled polycarbonate plastic.The NEMA/UL/IP classification (Raintight) allows these switches to be used outside. The maximum recommended rope (not supplied) length is 33 feet with a maximum interval support of 10 feet when horizontal. Switches are provided with three 1/2" NPT conduit openings.

  • Rope Operated Switch 1

    Features/Applications
    These switches are a low force slack cable style with ‘Slow-Make’ - ‘Slow-Break’ and ‘Snap Action’ contacts. Only the 03275-000 is ‘Positive Break’ and can be recommended for use as an Emergency Stop switch. The switches are basically push button devices operated through a nickel plated operating lever attached to the cover. Care must be taken when choosing and installing the operating rope because the low operating forces can be easily overcome and the switches will not trip or reset properly. The open style switches must be secured to a suitable enclosure. A sealing gasket and four mounting screws are supplied with each switch. The 04956-300 is a complete assembly consisting of (1) 03275-500 switch and (1) 02765-000 sheet metal enclosure powder coated black. On all the switches, each captive terminal will accept (2) # 14 AWG stranded wires. The silver composite contacts are gold plated to eliminate high resistance tarnishing. The life of these switches is in excess of 1,000,000 mechanical operations. These low force switches can be used for door control, signal devices, automation systems and warning devices etc. The maximum recommended rope (not supplied) length is 33 feet with a maximum interval support of 10 feet when horizontal.
