Clutch Tools vs. Conventional Tools


Panasonic's brings innovation to the assembly line with long life durable components.


  • Passes high amperage (up to 30A)
  • Needs replacement often
  • Contact arcing leads to premature failure
  • Passes only low amperage (0.5A)
  • Doubles the life over conventional switch
  • Prevents Premature deterioration of contacts

All Steel Clutch Assembly

  • Very few moving parts reduces the amount of wear and increasing the overall life of the clutch.
  • High accuracy and repeatability
  • All steel clutch increases durability

Photo Interrupter Sensor

  • Double the life of mechanical switches.
  • Sensing the clutch plate movement, the Photo Interrupter Sensor increases clutch life and tool accuracy.


Above Example is based on two years, running 1,000,000 cycles per year.
