Rockwell Automation’s popular Allen-Bradley Guardmaster Lifeline 4 cable pull emergency stop system is now available in stainless steel 316. The new Lifeline 4 stainless steel switch is suitable for outdoor use (such as mines and quarries), wash down areas with hygiene requirements, applications demanding a level of corrosion resistance, and/or wherever conventional materials are potentially problematic. The heavy-duty stainless steel construction of the new Lifeline 4 switch also minimises down-time and lost production through unscheduled maintenance.
Complementing existing Allen-Bradley Guardmaster products, this versatile cable/pushbutton operated system is designed for installation along or around awkward machinery--such as conveyors--and delivers constant and immediate emergency stop access to keep operations and operators safe at all times.
These include, for example, a positive mode mechanism to ensure the switch’s two safety contacts are latched open immediately upon actuation and only reset by intentional action. The 75-metre span is maintained by a cable status indicator, which makes the system easy to set up, closely monitor and maintain. Recommended for use with a stainless steel installation kit for added wash-and-wearability, the stainless steel Lifeline 4 also features laser-etched labelling for life-long readability with no flaking (associated with painted enclosures and traditional labelling), and is enclosure-rated to standards IP66 and IP67.
