Using weight sensors, pressure-sensitive safety mats detect the presence of workers, vehicles, or production materials and trigger an emergency stop that removes power from hazardous machinery. Only by removing pressure from the mat and switching on the control unit will power be restored to the machine.
The RKC-500 Detect-A-Finger drop-probe device prevents welding machinery from starting its stroke if a finger or hand is detected in the point-of-operation area. Key components are a sensing probe module with a rod shaped to fit over or around the work piece and a control module.
