2-Stage Safety Foot Switches

ZF Electronic Systems is pleased to introduce STEUTE’s Series GFS 2-Stage Safety Foot Switch. In use, the operator depresses the pedal to a detent position to close NO control contacts allowing machine operation.

Depressing the pedal through the detent position (as often happens when the operator is in distress) , opens (and latches) positive-break NC contacts to stop the controlled function. Units feature a reset button; a rugged powder-coated, die-cast aluminum housing; and IP65, EN ISO 13849-1 and cCSAus-compliance.

Typical applications include stamping equipment, die-casting machines, and punch presses.

These switches are exclusively available in North America from ZF Electronic Systems.
