DUO-TOUCH Two Hand Control Module
Module connects to STB switches, monitoring the outputs of each button, preventing an output signal if it detects a fault and de-energizing when the operator removes one or both hands.
Self-Checking Touch Buttons
Touch-activated photoelectric switches are self-checking to ensure reliability. Because they require no physical pressure to operate, they prevent stress on hands and wrists.
Pressure Sensitive Mats
Bircher Reglomat pressure sensitive mats are tactile sensors that form safety systems of PL e, category 3, when used together with our switching units of the ESD-3 series. They fulfil the standards EN ISO 13849-1 and EN1760-1.Bircher Reglomat pressure sensitive mats are used for detecting people or objects within a defined area. They serve to safeguard danger zones and thereby provide protection for people, or alternatively are used as switching elements in comfort applications. Safety mats used in switching or safety applications are characterised by their high response sensitivity and their sturdy construction. The safety mats are available in different shapes and designs, including the complete mounting accessories.
Aluminum Trim
Extruded aluminum ramp trim secures pressure-sensitive mats to the floor. Ramp trim increases safety by minimizing stumbling hazards and shifting of the mat system. Black and yellow awareness tape can be added to ramp trim for additional visibility. Ramp trim can withstand vehicle traffic.
Safety Controller
Bircher Reglomat’s ESD3 series controllers are rated PL e and meet safety category 3 when used with a safety mat or sensing edge. They include 2 input terminals to connect multiple mats or edges, a redundant safety output, monitoring output and include automatic or external reset options.
EZ Screen Type-4
Type 4 safety light curtains protect personnel from injury and machines from damage by guarding points of operation, access, areas and perimeters. With self-checking circuitry, Type 4 light curtains provide control reliability and high levels of fault tolerance.
