ABB's Safety Contact Mats keep worker safe around active equipment
ABB Jokab Safety's Safety Contact Mats are built for safeguarding personnel around machines, presses, robots and other types of active equipment. Safety Mats are typically connected to a monitoring system and placed as a boundary around potentially hazardous equipment. When someone steps on a mat, the surface triggers a control signal to the stop circuit of the nearby equipment. A switch design inside the mat assures that the equipment motion stoppage is immediate.
The mats, which feature a dotted polyurethane non-slip surface layer, are designed to be impervious to oil, acid or caustic substances. The mats can be affixed together and mounted to the floor with either aluminum ramp rails or integrated rubber ramp trim. The mats consist of two conductive plates which are separated by a proprietary isolating layer, and are maintenance free.
