Cable Switches with Broken Cable Detection

The following cable 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.
Note: Approximate shipping weight is 3.5 lbs

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.



Ces produit doivent seulement être utilisés sur des postes à risque correctement sécurisés et entretenus afin d’être conforme aux standards et régulations en vigueur (CSA, CLC). Un mauvais usage de ces produits sur des machines et des postes de travail non sécurisés de manière efficace peut causer des blessures

22.5mm Push Button Operators

Available in Lockable, Push-Pull, and Momentary versions, the following switches are hand operated, control circuit devices, rated ‘Heavy Duty’ normally for use with electromagnetic equipment.  The body is made from die-cast zinc.  The mushroom shaped plungers are molded from DuPont Delrin 100ST Acetal for improved impact resistance and are solid colors throughout.


  • Nema 12/13, IP 65
  • Gold Plated Contacts

Each operator will accept up to three tiers of two contact blocks for a total of six separate blocks.  Each operator is supplied with all mounting hardware and a Buna-N (NBR) o-ring which provides an oil tight seal upon installation.  The mechanical life of these units is 1,000,000 operations. 


These devices can be found on a variety of machinery, used to perform such operations as ‘start’, ‘stop’, ‘top stop’, ‘inch’, ‘jog’, ‘on’, ‘off’, ‘forward’, ‘reverse’, etc.

The 22102 series satisfies the requirements of IEC 60947-5-5 – 3.9 direct opening action (positive opening action) (of a contact element); when one or more of any of our normally closed contact blocks are fitted on any red operator.  This is commonly referred to as “Positive Break”, meaning the breaking of the normally closed contact(s) is not dependent upon springs.

Designated switches have been certified as Emergency Stop Pushbuttons and are listed under UL/NISD File E357870, Sec. 1. These switches were evaluated for NISD mounted in a UL type 12/13 enclosure.
