BERNSTEIN safety technology: SEU emergency stop devices on a exhibition stand

Emergency Stop Devices

In large machines and plants, there are usually many safety doors that must be safeguarded, for example to protect the operator from injury. In addition to monitoring these safety doors, each machine must also be safeguarded with one or more emergency stop devices in accordance with the Machinery Directive.

In addition to classic emergency stops, the BERNSTEIN product range also offers a wide selection of emergency stop rope pull switches. Troubleshooting is particularly easy with the luminous emergency stop SEU, which clearly indicates the current status at all times thanks to its luminous function.

Protected at all times: With emergency stop devices from BERNSTEIN

In a modern industry, man and machine work closely side by side and together. Above all, the safety of employees must be guaranteed at all times. But also the integrity of the plant and the material are important criteria. For this reason, every plant must be equipped with an emergency stop in accordance with the Machinery Directive.

BERNSTEIN offers the right emergency stop solution for every complexity, size and environment of your plant to prevent damage to man, machine and material in an emergency. And our products are particularly flexible in their use.

They are not only used in new machines and systems. In the retrofit of a laminating line from the 1990s, several emergency stop devices, such as the illuminated SEU and various rope pull switches, take over important safety functions.

All emergency stop devices can also be connected in series and to a safety evaluation system. Within this SMART Safety System, diagnostic data (DCD) can also be read out for each switch.

This is because emergency stop devices in particular are exposed to heavy mechanical loads. For this reason, they must be replaced after a certain number of actuations. The DCD system allows this number of actuations to be read out easily. In this way, the emergency stop can be replaced in good time before the permitted service life is reached (predictive maintenance).

Rope Pull Switcheswith safety function

These rope pull switches are equipped with an emergency stop switching device that can be triggered along the entire length by pulling on the wire in any actuation direction.

On actuation or in the event of cable breakage, the switching device locks automatically and can only be reset to its initial setting by using the resetting device on the switch.

Emergency stop push buttonwith and without luminous function

Thanks to the visual LED status display directly on the unit, the otherwise time-consuming and tedious search for the actuated emergency stop switch is drastically reduced.

In this way, undesired downtimes can be shortened or even completely avoided. In addition, the emergency stop switches can also be integrated into the SMART Safety System.
