E-Stop solutions are fail-safe

Foolproof shutdown.

April 20, 2015   by PLANT Staff

04EAOeStopEAO Corp.’s E-Stop switches deliver foolproof equipment shutdown.

With the new “Fail-Safe” contacts, separation of the contact block from the E-Stop actuator renders the application ineffective. If there’s any defect or improper installation of the switch actuator to the new Fail-Safe contact block, the switching contact opens, cuts power and stops the machinery as it would in an emergency shutdown routine.

Fail-Safe contacts come with Series 04 and Series 84 E-Stops.

Applications include: machinery, transportation, lifting/moving, medical equipment, industrial x-ray machines, packaging equipment, food processing applications, compressors and printing equipment.

EAO, based in Milford, Conn., makes HMI systems and components.
