This device, in my opinion, is waiting on some guidance from the Consumer Products Safety Comission. They won’t spend a pile of money to introduce something to find out it will not meet the requirements of the coming regulations.

This thing stops a spinning blade in about an 1/8th of a second. That’s about 7 or 8 revolutions of the blade. It can’t be activated by blade contact because it’s too slow to prevent a significant injury at that point of detection.

As soon as the CPSC gets its input from the public, and get’s its kick backs and perks all lined up from lobbiest and special interest groups, it will make a rulling and then manufacturers will know how to move forward.
