Kiepe pull-rope emergency stop switches type PRS are used in accordance with the requirements of EN 620 as well as BGI 710 and in conformity with DIN EN ISO 13850 as emergency stop devices as supplementary safety measures on conveyor belt systems. The pull rope is symmetrically tensioned on both sides of the red release lever. The exclusive use of glass fiber reinforced plastic and stainless steel is designed especially for applications in harsh environments such as potassium salt and rock salt factories, seaports and urea, recycling and composting facilities. With the pull-rope system functionally aligned, the emergency stop signal can be triggered over a distance of up to about 100 m for each switch.
Kiepe pull-rope emergency stop switch types PRS comply with Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. They must only be used in control electrical circuits. The PRS glas fiber reinforeced plastic housing offers space for 2 NC and 1 changeover contact. The versions PRS 101/102 use also a NO contact for a signal lamp. Taking into consideration the safety data and maintenance recommendations, the pull-rope emergency stop switch type PRS can be used in safety circuits in accordance with DIN EN IS0 13849 up to Performance Level c (PLc).
