Product Spotlight – Vital Safety Relay

A simple way to reach the highest level of safety

When several safety devices should control the same output, it is quite common to connect them in series. But to reach PL e, serial connection is not possible and each device should have its own safety relay. Vital offers the capability to exclusively control smaller machine safety systems that would otherwise have required a programmable controller or multiple safety relays. With the Vital safety controller, up to 30 safety devices can be connected in series to one Vital and still reach PL e.

Main benefits

  • One Vital instead of several safety relays
  • Easy to reach Cat 4
  • Easier troubleshooting
  • Easier connection

Main features

  • Used with specific devices or traditional devices with Tina adpaters
  • Models with one dynamic loop, two dynamic loops and logic, one dynamic loop and one 2 channel loop and logic
  • LED indication for status of the device and the loop
  • Info signal
  • Devices with M12 connectors

Product Spotlight – SafeBall 2 Hand Control from ABB/Jokab Safety

safeball_390x195

Innovative and ergonomic machine control

Safeball consists of a spherical ball containing two embedded pushbutton switches, one on each side of the ball. To be able to start and operate a machine both buttons must be activated. The risk of unintentional activation is thereby minimized and the device is simple and ergonomic to use.

Safeball can be utilized for either one-hand or two-hand applications. For a two-hand control device the operator needs to have a Safeball for each hand to be able to operate a machine. If one or more push buttons are released a stop signal is given to the machine.

Main benefits

  • Egonomic with several grip possibilities
  • Low but distinct activation force
  • Flexible mounting
  • Easy connection with AS-i models

Main features

  • 1 NO + 1 NC
  • Several cable lengths
  • Up to PL e/Cat 4

Grab wire safety switch

LineStrong Emergency stops are grab wire safety switches designed to be mounted on machines and sections of conveyors which cannot be protected by guards. In contrast to traditional mushroom head type Emergency stops, LineStrong can initiate the emergency command from any point along the installed wire length, and thereby provide robust emergency stop protection for exposed conveyors and machines.

ABB Jokab Safety Line Strong switches are designed to be mounted on machines and sections of conveyors which cannot be protected by guards. In contrast to traditional mushroom head type Emergency Stop buttons, Safety Rope Switches can initate the emergency command from any point along the installed rope length and provide robust Emergency Stop Rope Pull protection for exposed conveyors or machines. In combination with a dual channel safety monitoring relay, ABB Jokab Safety Rope Systems can be used as emergency stop devices monitored for up to Category 4 to EN 954-1 or PLe ISO13849-1. All ABB Jokab Safety Rope Emergency stop switches conform to ISO13850 and IEC 947-5-5. They have a positive mechanical linkage between the switch contacts and the wire rope. The switches have wire-breaking monitoring.

LineStrong is available in different models:

  • LineStrong1

    A compact, small and robust switch that can handle wires up to 30 meters on a single switch. LineStrong1 is made in rugged die cast housing.

  • LineStrong2

    A robust switch that can handle wires up to 80 meters on a single switch. Depending on the environment where the switch will be used, different materials can be chosen. LineStrong2 also exist in models with certified explosion proof contact block.

  • LineStrong3

    A robust switch that can handle long wires, up to 250 meters on a single switch. Depending on the environment where the switch will be used, different materials can be chosen. LineStrong3 is available in models with the wire entry from the left side, from the right side or from both sides of the switch. LineStrong3 also exist in models with certified explosion proof contact block.
