July 22, 2019 – ZF Electronic Systems is now carrying STEUTE’s broad ZS Series of emergency-stop pull wire switches in North America.

Typical applications include conveying systems, textile machinery and web processing operations.

Each switch is equipped with snap-action, NC positive-break contacts, providing a safe, reliable means for initiating an e-stop along the length of the installed pull-wire.

Switching function occurs if wire is pulled or breaks.

The switches are available for unidirectional and bidirectional operation up to 130 m, with IP ratings up to IP67.

Units feature an integral pushbutton reset, as well as rugged, die-cast aluminum, powder-coated housings. They are ISO EN 13850 and cCSAus-compliant.
