Safety Components are required for safety countermeasures in equipment and facilities. They are used for shut-out detection of mechanical guards, checking intrusion into hazardous areas, and building safety circuits. Today, forward-thinking manufacturers clearly realize the new role of increased safety on the factory floor.
- Recently adopted international safety standards have shifted the way systems are evaluated
- Safety is a corporate responsibility, not an obstruction to productivity
- Safety is essential to increased productivityand profitability
Poised at the leading-edge of safety solutions worldwide, Omron’s STI safety products focus on making safety work. Their automation safety products meet or exceed local and international safety standards.
1. Safety Light Curtains
Models are simple to install, and available in a wide selection of protected heights and resolutions.
2. Safety Laser Scanners
Omron' OS32C is a very compact safety laser scanner. It has 70 zone configurations for complex guarding parameters. Safety coverage up to 4 m at 270 degrees.
3. Safety Switches & Operator Controls
Tamper resistant switches enhance mechanical guarding methods.
- Guardlocking switches
- Hinge pin switches
- Non-contact switches
- Limit switches
- Tongue switches
- Explosion-proof versions
4. Emergency Stop Devices
- Enclosed and panel-mounted models available with key-operated reset
- Combination rope and push button actuated emergency stop switches
- Heavy duty housing offering rope spans to 200 meters
5. Mats & Area Guarding/Safety Edges & Bumpers
Built tough for tough environments. Combine a mat with a controller to provide proven reliability.
6. Perimeter Guarding
PA4600 models are available with single and multiple-beam models with an operating range to 70 meters. They’re perfect when installing fences is not practical.
7. Programmable Safety Systems/Safety Monitoring Relays
The NX-S series of controller offers Safety over EtherCAT, Omron's first to offer integrated safety functionality into the Sysmac platform, suitable for mid to large sized applications; now with stand-alone capabilities.
The G9SP stand-alone programmable safety controller for mid-sized applications supports direct connection to safety mats and non-contact switches. The NE1A DeviceNet safety network controller is well-suited for large complex applications, while safety monitoring relays are ideal for ensuring control reliability in smaller applications.
8. Enabling Switches
Provides the additional protection needed during set-up, programming and servicing of robotic and automatic equipment. Has distinct clicks for three easily discernible positions.Justifying the Cost of Safeguarding Equipment
