June 19, 2015 - AutomationDirect releases IDEM emergency stop control stations. Designed to provide robust emergency stop protection, the switches have a special lid safety trip mechanism which opens the contacts if the station lid is removed. Versions are available with a button protection shroud that accepts a padlock to lock out for maintenance activities, providing added protection.
The emergency stop control stations are available in two styles which are fitted with a 40mm twist-to-release mushroom head operator; the standard size box features 3-pole positive guided contacts and is available with plastic IP67-rated or IP69K-rated (NEMA 6) stainless steel housings and two conduit entries, while the long size box features a stainless steel housing, 4-pole positive guided contacts, three conduit entries, a two-color LED for status indication and includes an emergency stop legend plate.
Starting at $29 for the plastic housing and $125 for stainless steel, all emergency stop control stations conform to ISO 13850, ISO 13849-01, IEC 60947-5-1 and IEC 60947-5-5. IDEM emergency stop control stations are backed with a one-year warranty, cULus listed, CE, RoHS2 and REACH compliant.
