DescriptionGLS 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.
