  • Contacts will not close when released from "Off" (pos. 3) to "Off" (pos. 1) (per IEC60204-1 ; 9.2.5.8)

HE1G grip switches are available with or without a built-in Emergency Stop switch, and were designed for use as "deadman" switches by second operators in robotic cells. The Off-On-Off functionality provides a high level of safety based on human behavioral studies which determine personnel may squeeze OR let go when presented with a panic situation.
