In case of emergency, these are a must

22-02-2011

Emergency stop buttons are a must in many machines and systems.

In case of emergency the button is operated to stop a dangerous motion and to bring the machine in a safe position.

These new SNH emergency stop buttons, from Treotham Automation, have been approved by TÜV and for the US market in accordance with UL/CSA.

They also satisfy the relevant standards EN ISO 13850 of EN 60947-5-1 and EN 60947-5-5.

Depending on the design they can be used up to safety category 4, performance level e or SIL 3 in accordance with the new machine directive 2006/42/EG, and they satisfy the current safety standards EN ISO 13849-1 and EN 62061.

The SNH emergency stop buttons are important components for overall solutions in safety technology. They communicate with the safety switching devices of Series 4000 and the safety controls samos and samos PRO from Wieland Electric. They are used in almost all industries, from elevators to packaging systems.

The SNH emergency stop buttons are available as built-in or surface-mount versions with a standardized installation diameter of 22mm. They can be integrated in an operator panel and also be directly mounted to a machine using a surface-mounted housing.

All emergency stop buttons are contacted using detachable screw connection terminals. Variations with integrated LED lighting as well as buttons with blocking protection sleeves are available to avoid accidental operation.

The seven different sizes of the operating component can be combined with numerous switching options resulting in a variety of switching variations.
