A Level 5 cross cut shredder designed for medium size office use. The E-12CT shredder features some of the most advanced safety features in the industry as well as Level 5 micro-cut for added security. This model includes an integrated air filtration system that collects and traps up to 98% of fine dust fostering a cleaner, healthier work environment. An Emergency Shutdown system responds to voice or touch commands. In the event of an emergency, simply say "Stop" or tap the top cover of the machine, and the shredder stops immediately. An added emergency shutoff switch is located on the back of the machine as yet another level of personal safety. The 12" feed opening is reinforced with steel and contains electronic sensors that will turn the shredder off, should your fingers get too close. The sensor also detects and shuts off the machine if the sheet capacity is to be exceeded reducing jamming. The E-12CT includes an Energy Management System which places the shredder in a sleep mode when idle and completely powers down after 30 minutes of inactivity. The operator control pad includes all the functions of the shredder and notifies the user when sheet capacity is exceeded, bag is full or door is open. With an all steel cutting head and chain drive the E-12CT also features an internal Automatic Oiler. Rubber shock mounts isolate cutting head noise and vibration. An attractive fully enclosed cabinet on rolling castors provides for quiet dust-free operation.
