What is a cable pull switch?
A cable pull switch, also known as grab wire switches or rope pull switches, are a common type of emergency stop and safeguarding measure. They allow personnel to stop moving machinery anywhere along its length instead of at just one point on the apparatus and can be used over a long distance. This is useful if there is a chance that someone may become entangled in lengthy moving machinery, such as conveyor belts. These appliances are hung by a wire around the machinery and can be operated by pulling the cord. This isolates the circuit and stops the hazard.
Rockwell Automation is a global leader in industrial automation and digital transformation, and brings smart manufacturing to life. With a long legacy of creating Allen-Bradley® integrated control and information solutions, we help make you as productive as possible. Our portfolio of sensing, safety and motor control products can support your move towards smart machine applications. Allen-Bradley® IO-Link sensors are data-enabled and communicate with all field buses, providing diagnostic and health information about the device before a machine stops, and enabling quick production changeovers through fast parameter downloads from PLCs into the device. This reduces downtime and increases manufacturing OEE. For safety components, products with built-in diagnostics simplify the set-up of the smart device, and reduce maintenance, leading to a more efficient, machine data-driven approach.
