Safety rope emergency stop switches are often used in conveyor belt systems to secure large danger areas. Pulling the tensioned rope, rope breakage or impact on the e-stop cause activation of the switching function of the safety rope emergency stop switch. After activation of the e-stop function a clip mechanism maintains the e-stop command until it is unlocked manually by pressing the blue reset button.
Reset is only possible with correct rope tension.
The rope tension is adjusted directly on the safety rope e-stop switch. The switch features a rope tension indicator to facilitate adjustment, troubleshooting and maintenance.
Using AS-i PCBs, rope switches, belt drift switches and other switches can be integrated into AS-i systems. If needed, this can also be safety-related (Safety at Work).
