Control Panel Details:
The compact control panels are made of durable ABS plastic and maintains a UL94 V-0 rating. The start and stop buttons are custom manufactured by OTTO Controls in Illinois and are designed for long-term durability with solid aluminum bezels, a no-slip surface finish, and a strong tactile response. The latching emergency-stop button is Swiss-manufactured by EAO. The entire control panel is water, dust, and oil resistant and rated for millions of on/off cycles.
The control panel connects easily to the power tool brake via an industrial M12 twist connector. The 5 ft (1.5m) cable extension and dual mounting flanges allows the control panel to be mounted easily in a convenient location.

We ordered the PTB for a bench grinder we were integrating into an automated debur process and I have to say, it works like a charm!
Steve @ SCG Woodcrafters –
A great product! Both units are working great and installation was simple.
Jeff Kaskey, The Last Factory –
Finally my grinder just STOPS and we don’t have to waste time watching it spin down or stupidly jabbing a stick at it. Now we have this on all our machines.
