Industrial Safety and Sensing Postcard
Proper safety equipment can dramatically reduce workplace accidents and injuries. When you invest in industrial safety solutions, you’re also reducing insurance premiums, employee absence, and potential fines.
Sensing components also play a part in safe workplaces, working with control systems to detect, measure, analyze, and process production site changes as they happen.
Safety relays check and monitor a safety system and allow the machine to start or execute commands to stop the machine. Based on your machine layout, there are flexible, economical and easy-to-use safety relay options. From single-function to modular and configurable monitoring, Van Meter has a safety relay to meet your single-function or modular and configurable machine safety needs.
If you have a machine operating, safety switches are a requirement for your facility. Safety switches are used to prevent a machine from harming its operator or damaging itself. Our offering includes limit and interlock type switches as well as emergency stop devices applicable to a variety of environments from sequential access control, long run down/high inertia machines, and wash down.
Presence Detection Devices
Protect your people from hazardous situations and detect product location safely with the use of presence detection devices. Safety light curtains, laser scanners, pressure sensitive mats and edging presence detection devices on your plant floor help reduce dangerous situations. These products allow you to securely operate machinery that are stationary or mobile requiring full or partial access during operation through either passive or active interaction.
Safety Motion Control
Improve your machine operating function by minimizing downtime, reducing energy and production waste with Rockwell Automation’s safety motion control products. Your facility’s production can continue efficiently and effortlessly while allowing an operator to safely perform various types of work by either the drive outputting safe torque-off (remove motor torque without powering down the entire machine) or through safe speed monitoring (reduce and monitor the speed of your application).
Select Rockwell Automation PowerFlex drives allow you to protect both your personnel and equipment. These AC drives have integrated safety functions which remove torque without powering down the machine and allow for faster restart of machines to allow your business to keep running and reduce downtime. These compact, modular drives allow for a variety of motor control and flexible mounting options to help you simplify machine use and future expansion.
Keep the advantages of a traditional programmable controller (PLC) system while gaining safety applications with Rockwell Automation’s GuardLogix and Compact Guard Logix in your facility. As part of the Logix family, these safety controllers will ensure your machine’s safety and protect your investments. All from the same controller, they provide open and integrated safety, motion, drive and process control as well as seamless connectivity to plant-wide information systems.
