The following "taut cable" style switch has 2 NO and 2 NC contacts with Positive Break and Positive Transfer features making it particularly competent for use in Emergency Stop applications as well as for ordinary circuit control. This switch is pre-wired with a red 24 volt LED indicator light.

The housing is made from high quality die-cast aluminum and powder coated painted yellow. Set-up position is easily attained without removal of the cover. Cable is stretched tightly until shaft end is flush with indicator hub end. Switch will trip and latch if the cable breaks, comes loose or is pulled. Blue booted reset button is pushed to reset contacts back to their normal operating configuration. The mounting pattern coincides with other standard REES cable operated switches and additional mounting holes are provided to match competitive devices.
