SS-501 Solid State Clutch/Brake Controller

The SS-501 incorporates modular solid-state control technology, allowing for the expansion of a system with your options.  This affordable system will help bring you into compliance with OSHA.   A proven design, with over 10,000 units shipped, the SS-501 has been installed as original equipment on almost every brand of Mechanical Power Press sold in the US and Canada.  Even so, custom retrofits of controls onto older presses constitutes the bulk of LINK's SS-501 sales.  That ease of customization is one of the SS-501's best features, and a benefit enjoyed by LINK customers the world over.
