Ideal for wash-down applications in the packaging and food processing industries, the SK1 safety coupling in stainless steel was developed specifically as a failsafe alternative to electrical current limitation. It uses a patented preloaded ball detent system that is reportedly backlash free, disengaging in one to three msec when an overload is detected. Four versions are available, including single- and multi-position.
