Southwire™ Triggers® System Offers Next-Level Safety and Convenience

May 5, 2016

Southwire’s Triggers systems are designed to provide the highest possible level of safety for all cable pulling and feeding applications. The Triggers safety system  gives the operator, the wire feeding person, and the volt or j-box monitor full control over the puller’s, and/or feeder’s, motor.  This allows any of the operators or observers to have one-touch control of all devices in the event of an emergency. As well as being a safety device, these hand held units act as a signal repeater.  Up to 7 handheld units can be paired into the foot pedals to extend the range of the system.

Both Triggers safety switches are operated by simply pressing down or lifting off the foot pedal. Both pedals must be engaged for the puller motor to operate. This provides the highest level of safety, due to the fact that users do not have to rely on radio or phone communication to make decisions in the event of an issue with the pull. The simple lift of a foot, or push of a button, will shut off all equipment within two tenths of a second, making this a safer way to operate a pulling system. The Triggers Wireless Safety Switch System is UL Listed and FCC Certified for the 903.25 to 926.25 band and carries an IP55 rating.

The Triggers systems also provide a monitor of amperage draw of pulling equipment, indicating when to switch the puller to a lower speed. The foot pedals can be switched to stand-alone mode when only one person will be operating the pull. The Triggers switches save time by helping to avoid unnecessary stops and restarts as a result of miscommunication.

Southwire has a long history of developing, manufacturing and distributing a wide range of innovative products that bring new solutions to the market.  Southwire continues this legacy with the Triggers Wireless Safety Switch System, offering the highest level of safety when it comes to making pulls.
