Mechan Controls is launching the EM-Series safety relays as the latest addition to its range of machinery safety devices. Based on Mechan's safety system technology, the EM-Series expandable safety relay enables machine builders and system integrators to benefit from over 40 years of proven reliability in all types of industrial applications. With the emphasis on enhancing production, the EM-Series safety relays have a variety of features to improve safety and reduce machine downtime.
The EM-Series is fully modular and does not require programming to help eliminate downtime in case of any unexpected breakdowns. The master control unit (EM1) is a DIN rail-mounting module that features:
By means of the ESM expansion module, the EM1 master control unit can operate and monitor up to 30 emergency stop buttons and/or any mechanical device (locking or non-locking). The ESM connects via a six-way strap and draws power from the EM1.
This system has been designed to eliminate fault masking. Wiring each device to a single EM1/ESM will allow for easy identification of faults to maximise production uptime and increase productivity.
The SRL1 is suitable for use with dual-channel emergency stop buttons or safety devices with two safety outputs, either locking or non-locking types.
