Honeywell's MICRO SWITCH CPS Series Cable-Pull Safety Switches provide a readily accessible emergency stop signal, a cost-effective means compared to using multiple emergency stop push-buttons. The CPS Series Cable Pull Safety Switch's internal mechanism latches on both slackened cable (push) and pulled cable.
The 1CPS Series is intended for use in applications where the cable span is 76 m [250 ft] or shorter. It is an economical solution for shorter runs or zone protection typical to automated systems. The 2CPS Series is intended for use in very long cable runs of 152 m [500 ft] or shorter, such as long conveyor lines found in warehouses.
A line in the midpoint of the cable tension window indicates proper cable tension, providing easy set-up. The direct opening switch contacts are held closed when the actuating cable is under proper tension and the reset knob is set to the RUN position. When the actuating cable is pulled, slackened, or broken, a cam positively opens the NC (Normally Closed) switch contacts.
The snap-action operation causes the switch contacts to change state and mechanically latch almost simultaneously when the cable is pulled, slackened, or broken. The NC switch contacts remain open until the CPS is reset by properly tensioning the cable and manually rotating the reset knob.
When the direct opening switch contacts open, the auxiliary contacts also actuate (open contacts close). The auxiliary contacts are electrically isolated from the direct-opening switch contacts. These NO (Normally Open) contacts may be used for monitoring or signaling.
