Users of the new Series 04 Failsafe Emergency-Stop Switching Element from human machine interface expert, EAO, can improve safety for machinery operators.
The failsafe element is self- monitoring and will detect if the stop switch actuator becomes disconnected by accidental damage, negligent assembly or misuse. If there's any defect, the failsafe contact opens and the machinery will behave in the same way as for a normal emergency shutdown routine.
The product will fit any Series 04 emergency-stop or stop switch and is easily retrofitted by snapping on the new element. Three types of connection are possible: push-in terminals (PIT) with cage clamps, or screw and plug-in terminals.
