INCA emergency stop switch features 'long, thin' format

INCA is an emergency stop device, developed by Jokab Safety AB, intended for installation inside apparatus enclosures and on panels. It is easy to connect via its detachable terminal block. The function and appearance of the button itself are the same as for the Smile emergency stop device from Jokab Safety.

There is an LED inside both the INCA and Smile emergency buttons that shows the current status. A green light means that the emergency stop button has not been pressed, while a red light shows that it has been pressed. If the LED is flashing red and green, an emergency stop button earlier in the loop has been pressed. This method permits faster localisation of which emergency stop has been activated.

Similar to Smile, the INCA is available in two different versions, one for dynamic and the other for static loops. INCA 1 TINA is connected to a dynamic safety loop with a Pluto safety PLC or with a Vital safety module. INCA 1 has instead connectors for connection to a static safety loop with a safety relay. Both versions of INCA meet IP65, but with the INCA 1 TINA the safety circuit meets EN 954-1 category 4, even if there are several emergency stops connected in series.

INCA is intended for installation in a hole of 22.5mm diameter, and its installation depth is 53mm despite its 'long, thin' body style. The detachable terminal block used to connect the INCA has easily accessible measuring points. INCA is also available with a black button instead of red, for use as a general stop button.
