JDS Products unveils Sensing-Saf-Start
By Alyssa Dalton
August 22, 2011 – JDS Products claims its new Sensing-Saf-Start is the easy way to prevent small machines from restarting after a power interruption as required by America’s OSHA. The device replaces the power cord on small machines like table saws and drill presses, so they will conform to OSHA’s safety standards by disconnecting the machine’s power during a power loss and keeping the power to the machine switch “off” after the power is restored, it adds. This prevents any accidents which could result from the machine restarting unexpectedly, explains JDS Products. The device is available in three 120-volt styles and one 240-volt single phase style.
