Lifeline 5 switch from Rockwell Automation provides constant access to the E-stop function.
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster Lifeline 5 cable-pull switch from Rockwell Automation is a solid-state, cable-pull E-stop offering an electronic, rope-monitoring system to compensate for thermal expansion and cable sag. The Lifeline 5 switch provides constant access to the E-stop function, stopping a machine hazard with a simple pull of the attached cable. The patented, microprocessor-based solution simplifies setup and allows for more efficient maintenance and troubleshooting. The easy-to-see LED indicators assist in cable tensioning for quick, precise setup while providing switch status and diagnostics during operation. Available in die-cast aluminum or rugged, stainless-steel housings with IP66 and IP67 environmental ratings, respectively, the Lifeline 5 switch helps optimize productivity by combining maximum reliability with diagnostics that can help prevent unplanned downtime. The die-cast aluminum model also offers an optional, integrated E-stop button for even greater application flexibility.
