Safety is obviously a very important aspect of any work place. It is something preached over and over in work places from Taiwan to Timbuktu and everywhere in between. This episode of 'My Automation Education' is going to focus on one of the companies we sell that thrives in the safety area of automation: Schmersal. They specialize in the design and manufacture of industrial switches, machine safety products, position sensors and related control accessories. Regardless of what type of point-of-operation, or perimeter guarding system you’re using, the potential for electrical/mechanical failure is always present. That’s why many designers equip their systems with safety controllers.
These devices detect faults that can compromise safety-system operation, insuring system reliability. Example: weld/stuck contacts, open/short circuits, open/misaligned guards, insufficient operating voltage & system component failures are just some of the detectable faults. Schmersal also offers devices that help pinpoint fault location with defined flashing LED patterns to minimize equipment downtime.
Schmersal offers more than 500 safety interlocks, emergency cable-pull switches, safety limit switches and matched safety controllers to satisfy the most demanding applications. All products are CE-compliant and meet ANSI/OSHA guidelines. Each is certified by a recognized independent testing agency!
