Rockwell Automation offers many safety products. When we combine them with our other saftey offerings, we can improve the functional operation of your machinery while helping to increase personnel safety, efficiency and productivity.
Rockwell Automation’s Safety Switches and Sensors are designed and built to global standards for high reliability, stability, and quality. Safety sensor products include light curtains, safety edges and mats, and laser scanners. Safety switches include limit and interlock switches.
The Guardmaster® Safety Connection Systems are complete wiring solutions dedicated to machine safety. These quick disconnect-based systems consist of safety wired T-Ports and distribution boxes as well as patchcords and shorting plugs.
Rockwell’s line of Safety Push Buttons and Signaling Devices offer a variety of emergency stop devices and grip switches that help ensure safe working conditions for personnel. These critical components provide high quality and reliability for your machine and process safety applications.
Rockwell’s safety relays and timers will help protect personnel from unintended machine starts and loss of the safety function. Products include monitoring safety relays, timing control units, safety control relays, and single function and expansion relays. Specialty relays are also available for a wide-range of high-risk applications.
A Rockwell Safety PLC will allow standard and safety-related programs to reside in a single controller chassis, providing flexibility in programming as well as a familiar and easy-to-use environment for programmers. Our safety controller solutions provide open and integrated control that will help to ensure machine safety and protect your current control investments.
Rockwell Automation’s Guard I/O™ Safety products provide all the advantages of traditional distributed I/O for safety systems. They reduce wiring costs and startup time for machines and cells. Guard I/O blocks are available with a variety of features for both in-cabinet and on-machine applications.
The CENTERLINE® ArcShield™ Arc-Resistant controller, and CENTERLINE 2500 and 2100 with ArcShield Motor Control Centers, provide rugged process control for applications requiring a higher level of personnel protection. Our ArmorStart® safety line of distributed motor controllers achieves Category 4 safety functionality while providing a safety solution integrated into your DeviceNet™ On-Machine™ safety installation. Our IEC safety contactors and control relays help protect personnel from unintended machine starts and loss of the safety function. The ElectroGuard® Safety Isolation system simplifies operator lockout/tagout procedures to help improve compliance and productivity.
The Kinetix® line of drives, including the 300, 6000, 6200, 6500 and 7000 all have a built-in feature for safety functionality. With Safe Torque-Off, a drive output is disabled to remove motor torque without removing power from the entire machine. Safe Speed Monitoring permits you to reduce and monitor the speed of your application to help allow an operator to safely perform some types of work without completely stopping the machine.
To help you protect both your personnel and equipment, a variety of PowerFlex® drives are available with safety features. The PowerFlex 525 AC drives include embedded Safe Torque-Off as a standard feature. Safe Torque-Off is an optional feature for the PowerFlex 40P, 70, 700H, 700S, and 750-Series AC drives, which also support Safe Speed Monitor functionality. Additionally, you can configure drives without a safety option using the MSR57P Safety Relay.
Understanding the current risk level of one machine or an entire plant floor is a huge task and many companies do not know where to begin, but Rockwell Automation can help. Rockwell Automation has a global safety team of principle consultants to assist end users, integrators and OEM’s at any step of a safeguarding project – from training and standards assistance through validation and startup.
Training can encompass a wide variety of elements which include: Current and emerging industry standards and guidelines, application examples when applying safety components covering electrical design and function for Control Reliable (EN-954) Category circuits, machine guarding design, and risk assessment.
Safety is imperative to your company’s success. It can affect productivity, morale and your bottom line. We understand that not everyone can be an expert and that is why we have employed a Safety Solutions Business Team to help you understand and solve your safety issues. Revere and Rockwell have the products and the expertise to help you put together a safety program that is right for your plant.
