Types of safety switch: push pull switch and twist release switch

A safety switch breaks the current instantly by manual activation. It switches off the power instantly to reduce the risk of injury and incident. Our KISSLING sealed safety and emergency-stop (E-STOP) switches are equipped with twist-release and pull-release mechanisms. They have been designed and manufactured to the most exacting quality standards and are relied on by hundreds of customers around the world to perform under extreme conditions.

KISSLING Safety Switches Portfolio
