When it comes to machine design, there are many things to consider. For example, you want to choose the proper machine/motion control, Fieldbus, HMI, the right size and kind of motors, and mechanical actuation techniques. However, you absolutely must choose the right safety products for your automation application to keep your workforce safe.
Also, the right automation safety devices boost production capacity by maintaining the efficiency of your automation systems and frequently preventing shutdowns.
Below are eight safety products for your automation applications to keep your manufacturing in motion.
E-Stop devices are a crucial component of a complete safety circuit as they halt equipment functions in emergencies.
Essential for safety circuits and redundant control systems, relays with forcibly guided contacts contain terminals arranged for easy PCB/panel layout.
From simple light curtains for basic ON/OFF detection to more advanced devices for complex solutions, we have the ideal safety technology to meet your needs.
Protect your team with an efficient combination of safety mats, edges, and bumpers as part of a complete safety solution.
Safety relays and programmable systems feature wide-ranging functionality, low maintenance needs, and compact housing to help you save space.
Improve the safety of your application with switches and operator controls that have a long life and are suitable for harsh environments.
Safety controllers provide fail-safe communication between nodes, such as safety I/O blocks, safety interlock switches, safety light curtains, and safety PLCs in safety applications up to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 according to IEC 61508 standards.
Safety measures can help reduce employer liability and demonstrate compliance with safety standards to appropriate regulatory agencies.
OEMs integrating safeguarding into their machines enjoy a ready market for their easy-to-use, pre-integrated machines.
Safeguarding machines benefits workers and manufacturers by reducing lost work days due to injury, increasing productivity, and improving worker morale.
