Welcome to Schmersal
Safety in system: Protection for man and machine!
Under this motto, the Schmersal Group offers its customers the largest range of safety switching appliances and systems worldwide for the protection of human life and machines.
At SPS IPC Drives 2012, the Schmersal Group presented an innovative solenoid interlock with a switch and actuator of unusual design.
With the Schmersal system, which will be introduced at SPS IPC Drives 2012, the Schmersal Group takes an important step on its way to becoming a system provider in the field of machinery safety.
The Schmersal Group has developed the RSS 36, a versatile electronic safety sensor featuring, amongst other things, a high level of protection against tampering as well as flexible mounting possibilities.
At SPS IPC Drives 2012, a variant with integrated “AS-Interface Safety at Work” (AS-i Safety) interface was presented.
Robust, ergonomic, safe and versatile. With the T2FH 232 series, the Schmersal Group extends its safety foot switch range with two-pedal variants.
The food industry sets special requirements for components and systems used for machine safety. These requirements include - depending on the application - the hygiene, the sealing to prevent penetration of liquids and dust, the compliance with the industry-specific prescriptions, explosion protection and the suitability of the devices for particularly high or low temperatures. Therefore, the use of safety switchgear, which have been developed especially for these particular conditions, is recommended.
How many particles does an actuator installed at the man-machine interface release to the environment in everyday operation? This question is completely irrelevant in most sectors of the machinery construction industry. In the clean-room technology however, it is of critical importance, considering that here, only com-ponents featuring low particle emissions may be used.
