Description

GLS and GLS-SS Series safety rope switches are designed to be mounted on machines and sections of conveyors which cannot be protected by guards. In contrast to traditional mushroom head type emergency stop buttons, GLS and GLS-SS Series safety rope switches can initiate the emergency command from any point along the installed rope length and provide robust emergency stop rope pull protection for exposed conveyors or machines. In combination with a dual channel safety monitoring relay, GLS and GLS-SS Series safety rope systems can be used as emergency stop devices monitored for up to PLe to ISO13849-1. All GLS and GLS-SS Series safety rope emergency stop switches conform to ISO13850 and EN60947-5-5. They have a positive mechanical linkage between the switch contacts and the wire rope. The switches have wire-breakage monitoring. On pulling the rope the safety contacts are positively opened and the auxiliary contacts are closed. The switches are mechanically latched and can then only be returned to the operational condition by pressing the blue reset button as required by ISO13850.

GLS Series are general/standard duty robust die-cast safety rope pull switch designed to protect conveyor lengths where protection is required up to 80 m (262.5') using two switches or up to 60 m (197') using a single switch. They provide a reliable general purpose safety solution for conveyors and offer a choice of fittings depending upon the application. They can be supplied with a mushroom type emergency stop button which can be fitted to the side of the switch to offer an extra traditional emergency stop function close to the switch, or can be fitted later after installation without any extra wiring. A bi-color LED is also available to show switch status from a distance. Rugged internal sealing bellows means the GLS Series can be high pressure hosed and they are suitable for internal or external use.

The GLS-SS Series are general/standard duty stainless steel safety rope pull switches designed to protect long conveyor lengths up to 100 m (328'). The 316 SS housings are designed specifically to withstand the harsh environments found in the food and pharmaceutical industries. The fixing holes are under the cover of the switch to prevent food trap areas and will survive chemical and detergent washdown by providing all stainless steel parts and robust IP67 and IP69K sealing by using integral bellows and gaskets. An easily visible bi-color LED is available to show switch status from a distance. Shorter rope spans up to 80 m (262.5') can be achieved by using just one switch therefore making a cost effective solution and reducing electrical wiring runs.

Note: Note: It is important that the first 500 mm (19.68") is not used as part of the active protection coverage. If protection is required in this first 500 mm (19.68") then it is recommended to use switches fitted with a mushroom type E-Stop button. OMEGA also recommends using a safety spring when a maximum of one corner pulley is used.
