Simple operation of your safety gate system

With the pushbutton unit PITgatebox you can easily and flexibly control safety gate switches and systems. And there's another added safety factor thanks to the integration of PITreader – user authentication. This enables user permissions to be checked via RFID key before the gates are operated. That way it’s possible to ensure that the right group of people has access to the plant, based on qualifications and the tasks of the relevant personnel.

Commands such as activate, stop or reset machine can be controlled based on successful authentication. As a result your machine has optimum protection against misuse or even manipulation. The robust control unit can be installed quickly and easily on standard profile systems thanks to the slimline design.

Pushbutton unit PITgatebox: new types for greater flexibility

Numerous new types of the pushbutton unit PITgatebox are available, enabling an even more flexible approach for your individual safety gate solution. Discover the various combinations of pushbuttons, switches and E-STOP pushbuttons.

The benefits of the pushbutton unit PITgatebox at a glance

  •   -  Simple operating function meets premium quality and design
  •   -  PITreader with RFID key for activating the PITgatebox
  •   -  High-quality die cast zinc IP65 housing is highly robust to shock, vibration and collision
  •   -  Slimline housing for space-saving installation on standard aluminium profile systems
  •   -  Flexible installation thanks to integrated, rotatable mounting bracket

This often requires machines to be fenced-in with access being provided via lockable doors, however, a lockable door can also present its own hazard.

All Happening Live: the Eplan Virtual Fair

Rittal and EplanLast year Eplan welcomed around 1,400 attendees from 73 countries to its international Virtual Fair. Impressive figures – and that in times before such virtual formats had become the standard almost everywhere. This year the interest in new, innovative Leadership Talks, practice-oriented webcasts and worldwide chats for talking shop with other users is likely to increase again.

This year’s Eplan Virtual Fair has a full sixteen-hour programme planned. This year marks the fifth edition of the global “trade show on the net”, which has enjoyed a continually growing number of visitors from all around the world. The fair will be broadcasting, presenting and chatting live from 6.00 am to 10.00 pm (CEST).

Safety Scanner or Safety Mat? How to Choose the Right Safeguarding Device.

 

Omron Safety ScannerYou've done your risk assessment, and now it's time to implement a risk reduction strategy using engineering control measures. Since physical barriers can be costly and impractical, many manufacturers opt for what are known as presence sensing devices, a category that includes technologies like safety light curtains, safety laser scanners, and safety mats.

Because they don’t physically prevent an operator from reaching the hazard zone, presence sensing devices only work for machines that can be stopped anywhere in their cycle. Each device must be positioned far enough away from the machine that it’s extremely unlikely for anyone to be able to reach the danger area after triggering the safety response.

Pandemic Creates New Job Roles and Fosters Automation Investment

Pandemic Job RolesBy Pat McGibbon, Chief Knowledge Officer, AMT

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This observation was made by philosopher George Santayana in 1905, but can help manufacturers today avoid mistakes in responding to the impacts of the pandemic. History shows that there are two likely outcomes of the current crisis which relate to manufacturing.

First, automation and digital manufacturing technologies will expand sooner and faster than the manufacturing technology market as a whole over the next two years. Second, this growth spurt will lead to changes in the manufacturing workforce throughout the recovery.
