Conveyor Components Co.’s Model PC pull cord is a safety stop control allowing users to quickly shut off equipment in emergencies with the pull of a cable.

The Model PC was developed to meet requirements of safety agencies around the world, the company says. The control is designed to act as an emergency stop for conveyors and other moving machinery.

The one or two microswitch outputs of the Model PC can control up to two separate circuits, depending on the model chosen. These outputs can include one for machinery shutdown and one for an alarm.

Units are left-ended, right-ended or double-ended, and the flag arm must be manually reset after the problem is corrected. An external red indicating light is available as an option.

This standard housing construction is corrosion-resistant cast aluminum, with an optional polyester or black epoxy powder coating.
