A better way to prevent tampering and device defeat
Guards can be an efficient safety solution when implemented correctly. Unfortunately, when they are difficult to use, or when they interfere with the ability to complete tasks, operators are more likely to bypass them.
Many manufacturers have learned the hard way, discovering that the safety measure they originally implemented are no longer truly protecting their team. In these situations, high-coded door switches with OSSD (output signal switching device) outputs are essential for upholding safety best practices and protecting workers.
This white paper discusses the benefits of Type 4 high-coded safety door switch and best practices for their implementation.
A sturdy guard lock switch with RFID and a holding force of 2,000N, that is ideal for the most challenging applications, including robotic applications.
Cost-effective safety interlocks for high-risk applications that are difficult to defeat and easy to install.
