Safety Rope Switches
Large hazard zones, for which safety doors cannot be used, have to be secured. Another effective option is to use fencing ropes with safety rope switches.
Examples are extended manufacturing islands or conveyor belts. The rope is fixed to both the ends of the safety rope switches. In a hazard situation, the plant can be immediately locked and safely switched off by tugging at the tight rope. Even when there is a tear in the rope, the switches ensure immediate machine standstill.
Significant advantage of the ZANDER safety rope switches are the integrated monitoring options. A viewing panel shows the correct rope tension. If required this can be quickly and easily adjusted with our tensioning system. A big LED on the switches indicates the current operating status, which is visible from a large distance. If the LED is green, everything is OK; a red blinking light indicates that the machine has been stopped.
For the food and chemical industry, we offer our switches and accessories even in stainless steel design.
