Rope Pull Switch - RPS


EUCHNER Rope Pull Switch (RPS switch) provide protection across large areas, compared to an Estop button. Operation is possible along the whole rope length, and not just a small area within reach of the switch. The RPS switch triggers with an increase (pulling) or decrease in tension (severing) of the safety cable or pushing of the E-stop with redundant safety and monitoring contacts. The RPS switch is Reset with a twist of the reset dial while proper rope tension is present. The RPS rope pull switch is then ready for operation. The RPS makes installation quick and easy with a built-in tension adjustment knob and rope tension indication window.
