Jan and Ken, you are both correct, even tho the electromagnetic switches are not new technology, they are being used more and more in electrical motor environments as a safety feature.

Jan,

With the new switches, if the machine shuts down, shouldn't it restart quickly (assuming regalar voltage has been restored)?

Ken, I have no detailed info concerning the switches used in Tormek machines, but the behaviour of my T7 tells me that it is an under voltage release and restart protection switch. Some switches offer also overload (thermal) protection.  :)
