    SawStop Jobsite Saw PRO 1.5HP 120V

    The Jobsite Saw Pro is equipped with the SawStop safety system. This revolutionary technology was developed to reduce the potential for a serious injury in the event of accidental contact with the saw blade. The SawStop safety system includes two components, an electronic detection unit and a fast-acting brake. The electronic detection unit detects when a person contacts the blade. A small electrical signal is induced onto the blade by electrodes placed around the arbor. Although this low voltage, high frequency signal is too small to feel, it can be measured by the detection system. When human skin comes into contact with the blade (or arbor), a portion of the signal is absorbed by the body due to the inherent electrical capacitance of the human body. As a result, the signal on the blade gets smaller and the detection unit recognizes this as contact.
