Safety Rope Pull Cord Switches for Explosive Environments (Die Cast)

In electrical and safety engineering, hazardous locations are places where fire or explosion hazards may exist. Sources of such hazards include gases, vapours, dust and fibres which are combustible or flammable.

IDEM’s range of Safety Rope Switches have been developed to operate in explosive environments. The internal contact block has been third party approved by IECEx to the latest ATEX standards.

On pulling the rope, the safety contacts are positively opened, and the auxiliary contacts are closed. The safety rope switches are mechanically latched and can then only be returned to the operational condition by pressing the blue reset button as required by ISO 13850.

All IDEM safety rope pull switches conform to ISO 13850 and IEC 60947-5-5 and have a positive mechanical linkage between the switch contacts and the wire rope. The rope pull switches have wire breakage monitoring.
