A Level 5 cross cut shredder designed for large office or departmental use. The E-16CT shredder incorporates some of the most advanced safety features in the industry. 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 full 16" 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-16CT 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-16CT also features an internal Automatic Oiler. Rubber shock mounts isolate cutting head noise and vibration. A large capacity waste bin and attractive fully enclosed cabinet on rolling castors provides for a quiet dust-free operation.
