When it comes to maximum safety on the assembly line, in the production line, or directly at the machine, the Safety Rope Pull Switches from BERNSTEIN AG are a reliable and proven solution. The company from Porta Westfalica has now added a particularly small and compact version to the product family of safety rope pull switches, which will be presented at the SPS in Nuremberg in November. Thanks to its modular design, the new SRO (Safety Rope Pull) is extremely space-saving as well as being highly versatile.
According to the Machinery Directive, machines have to be equipped with at least one emergency stop which can stop a dangerous process at any time in order to prevent damage to people, but also to machines or materials. With the help of a safety rope pull switch, this is possible both simply and cost-efficient. Only one switch and one rope are required whilst, at the same time, still being able to protect a large area. BERNSTEIN AG has now extended its existing portfolio of safety rope pull switches with a version that ensures that the required safety can be achieved even in the smallest of spaces thanks to a particularly compact design. "With the SRO, we are completing the product family and can now offer the right rope pull or emergency stop switch to our customers for almost all their applications," says Philip Aumann, responsible product manager.
Before the users actually install their SRO, they can choose from metal or thermoplastic housings and actuators. Additionally, they can select either a 2- or a 4-contact version. "This modular principle has the advantage of always being able to offer exactly the right product for a specific customer application," explains Philip Aumann.
On request, BERNSTEIN can also equip the switch directly with an emergency stop button, in addition to the rope, in order to offer customers the maximum range of safety options. The SRO enables areas of up to 30m in length to be safeguarded. The entire product family of rope pull switches will be presented by the company at SPS 2019 in Nuremberg.
