Two-hand control is a commonly used machine safety strategy for hydraulic and mechanical press brakes to keep operators safe. A frequent challenge when using this technology is to avoid ergonomic injury due to repetitive operations. The TouchStart series offers capacitive technology, reducing the likelihood of wrist injury caused by repetitive motion. In addition, the TouchStart series has RFI immunity to prevent false triggering, meets applicable standards, and be can be easily bundled with G9SA-TH301 for a two-hand control solution.

Overview

CE_UL-CUS.jpg

  • No physical pressure required to actuate switch—reduces the likelihood of wrist injury caused by repetitive motion.
  • Excellent sensitivity—sensor is designed to operate even if operator is wearing gloves.
  • RFI Immunity—special circuitry inhibits output in the presence of RFI that would otherwise cause false triggering of output.
  • AC version is UL Recognized—meets the applicable requirements in the proposed first edition of UL 491.
  • Saves time and money.
  • Easy mounting in a single hole.
  • Wiring is simplified because terminals are clearly identified and easily accessible.
  • No special power supplies are required because switch is available in either 120 VAC or 24 VDC versions.
