POWER TOOL BRAKE DETAILS
The Power Tool Brake is constructed of durable ABS plastic and maintains a UL94 V-0 rating. With a 5′ (1.5m) power extension and dual mounting flanges, it is designed to be easily mounted in an out-of-the-way location. Basic calibration can be achieved via two access holes in the side of the enclosure and rubber plugs are included to seal these holes once installation is complete.
The MAKESafe 3-Button Control Panel
Measuring just 5” across, this control can be quickly mounted in an easy-to-access location. But don’t let the small size fool you – this compact control panel is manufactured in Ohio from durable UL94V-0 ABS plastic. The start and stop buttons are custom manufactured by OTTO Controls in Illinois and are designed for long-term durability with solid aluminum bezels, a no-slip surface finish, and a strong tactile response. The latching emergency-stop button is Swiss-manufactured by EAO. The entire control panel is water, dust, and oil resistant and rated for millions of on/off cycles.
A standard industrial control using standard 30mm buttons and a latching emergency stop.
Control Cable Pigtail
If you have existing controls, interlocks, or simply want to do this part yourself – this control cable will give you the ability to customize how the base unit is controlled.
