Phaseda LLC offers heavy-duty industrial control switches.

Phaseda LLC introduces its heavy-duty industrial control switches. The HY57 series has a mushroom-shaped red button, designed for easy access in critical operations. It has normally closed function to shut off power supply by pressing the button in emergency. It also has NO + NC (normally open + normally closed) dual-circuit functions. It has UL rating at 18A at 125 V ac, 12 A at 250 V ac and is fully compliant with European RoHS (restriction of hazardous substances—without lead and other banned metals).

The KJD17 series is patented electro-magnetic switch design with under voltage protection. If power supply falls below certain voltage, the switch shuts off automatically to protect mission-critical equipment and machinery. When power resumes, the switch will not turn on until manually actuated.

The electro-magnetic switch has UL approved rating of 12 A at 120 V ac, 16 A at 220 V ac; VDE rating 10(8) A at 250 V ac (VDE is Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker, like UL for Germany). It has DPST (double pole, single throw) function with green and red buttons, and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) cap for dust and water protection. This safety switch is widely used in wood-working machines, power tools, and industrial machinery.
The company had these two switches made in China for affordable pricing. Phaseda's Website has specification sheets and stock information.
