Typical Applications

Integrates with all Peco InspX manufactured machines

The Container Stops come in "normally open" or "normally closed" configurations

Available in normally open or normally closed models. In the normally open (Electro-Arm) configuration, the actuator finds and divides containers with an increasing force which reaches its maximum as containers build up behind the stop when power is applied. The stop returns to the open state when power is taken off. In the normally closed (Auto-Stop) configuration a permanent magnet holds the armature and container in place. On application of power the actuator is withdrawn and the stop opens, allowing containers to flow. The stop returns to the closed state after power is taken off.
