Machinery safety and cable access products

Foremost Electronics is promoting its range of safety and cable access products for industrial and construction equipment and services. Emergency stop switches are required in many industrial and process control applications including alarms, emergency equipment and vehicle shutdown and exit access. Foremost supplies a wide range of rugged, high-reliability emergency stop switches from the IDEC e-stop series.

IDEC's high-reliability range of emergency stop switches have patented third-generation safety technology and provide optimal safety by conforming to international approvals: UL, TUV, ATEX, CE, and CCC.

Nine different series of emergency stop switches offer an exceptional range and include a very wide variety of options including: three plunger diameters (30, 40 and 60mm), three plunger colours (yellow, red and grey), the availability of illuminated versions, 16, 22 and 30mm panel cut-outs, several methods of connection, four types of reset functions - twist, pull, both (when required) or key - and reduced size, and offer flexibility in the number of contacts, from one to four with normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC) variants.

Because user safety is vital, IDEC has developed two patented technologies that go beyond today's most stringent standards. Many versions are fitted with "safe brake action technology" ensuring fail-safe operation even if the switch actuator is not properly positioned, has been damaged or is detached. This technology is especially useful in emergency stop switches that are in highly prominent positions or which have a detachable contact block and are more liable to be accidentally damaged.

Other models have padlock eyelets provided so that emergency stop switches can be locked in their safety position and machines cannot be re-started whilst in use by other operators. Several padlocks can be fitted at the same time, therefore allowing several operators to work safely on different areas of the installation at the same time, without fear that one can restart the machine before the others have finished and removed their padlocks.

Wherever a secure electrical connection to machinery or equipment is required Foremost can supply a wide range of cable management and entry systems from icotek. icotek products are suitable even in applications where extreme contamination by water, dust, vibration or extreme temperatures occur.

Icotek supply completely split cable entry systems allowing pre-terminated cables with diameters from 1 to 75mm to be routed quickly and sealed securely with up to IP66 / IP68 / UL type 4X. They can be also be installed when retrofitting or maintaining equipment.

Compact cable entry plates are suitable for routing standard cables without connectors from 1.5 to 22mm in diameter with minimum space requirements. High certified sealing rates up to IP68 / UL type 4X are achieved and certificates can be provided upon request.

For secure and structured cable routing and strain relief of electrical lines icotek offers several strain relief plates for various mounting methods. For large-diameter cables high quality cable clamps and cleats are available.

icotek also provides innovative options for EMC/EMI cable earthing applications. The icotek SKL shield clamps are made for reliable and effective earthing of high-frequency interferences and allow safe operation of machinery and equipment.

Alan Vincent, Sales Director of Foremost, comments: "Our emergency stop switches and cable access systems are ideal for industrial and construction equipment and services. Safe, reliable and easy to find and use emergency stop switches have many applications on vehicles, machinery and site access. Icotek cable gland products offer rugged, simple to use cable and pneumatic access for terminated or unterminated cables for both site equipment and fixed installations."
