MICRO SWITCH™ Safety Switches CPS Series-Image

Keeping industrial automation equipment operating safely and efficiently, while meeting all safety standards is a key concern of OEMs and end-users alike. From factory floor to assembly line, Honeywell's MICRO SWITCH™ safety switches deliver both long lasting reliability and safety in a compact, cost-effective package.

Honeywell's CPS Series of Cable Pull Safety Switches are designed to provide a readily accessible emergency stop signal, especially for emergency stop protection for exposed conveyor line.

This is a cost-effective means compared to using multiple emergency stop push buttons.

(Cable Pull Safety Switches are not, however, to be used as a means of personnel safeguarding. They may be used to prevent further injury or damage to equipment when used for emergency stop signaling.)

The internal mechanism latches on both slackened cable (push) and pulled cable. This capability enhances productivity by eliminating nuisance stops due to variations in temperature, stretch of cable over time, and other application variables.
