Rockford System introduces e-stop assembly CLM510

Apr. 27, 2017 – Rockford Systems, a provider of machine safeguarding products and services, has introduced the CML510 cable and push-button e-stop (emergency stop) assembly boasting a “unique” cam operation to deliver faster positive stopping of machines.
The assembly is also effective as an awareness barrier on the backside of shears and press brakes, as well as around the perimeter of other hazardous areas for reducing risk, says the company. The e-stop assembly includes a pushbutton switch with red mushroom-head button, indicator light and bulb, 21 feet of red PVC-covered steel cable, and cable tension kit. Because the cable is interlocked with the switch, it will actuate an emergency stop if pulled or removed from a hook, leaving the machine inoperable, says Rockford, adding that the machinery cannot restart until the switch is reset. The switch is reset by turning the blue reset dial from the Off position to the run position.
