Rope Pull safety switches by BERNSTEIN offer a span up to 75m

Safety rope pull switches are used on operator-accessible parts of machinery, such as conveyor belts, assembly lines, etc. They operate similarly to emergency stop pushbuttons or E-stops, but the latter can only be mounted in specific places, at intervals, while a rope-pull switch operates at any point of a certain machine section.

Rope pull switches operate under 2 conditions:

  • When the rope is pulled (alarm)
  • When the rope is broken or interrupted (malfunction)

BERNSTEIN offers 2 types of rope pull switches:

  • SR, plastic enclosed
  • SRM, metal enclosed

The main features of these safety switches are:

  • Span (at rated temperature) 25m, or 37.5m, or 75m
  • IP67 Ingress Protection
  • Contacts rated 250VAC/24VDC, 5A
  • Rope setting by simple lug or by the exclusive Quickfix device, allowing faster assembly, not requiring clamps, thimbles or tensioners
  • Windows indicating the rope status and the switch status
  • Available bi-function release/e-stop button on the switch
  • Available remote indication of the switch status
