E-Stop device for suspension gear in the electroplating industry

Description

Within the scope of safety at work, shuttle carriages ("suspension gear") in the electroplating industry are equipped with a device for triggering an E-Stop signal. Due to the long travel distances and the resulting expansive danger zones, buttons (which can be accessed only locally) are not the best choice. Alternative command devices are therefore sought.

Solution

ERS200 safety rope switches are used. With these E-stop command devices, also referred to as pull cord switches, a tightened rope, which is fitted with eyelets and which can be guided around corners, opens the contact in the rope switch upon actuation (positive opening). Thanks to the small design of the switch, it can easily be integrated in the system.
