Georg Schlegel is expanding its portfolio by an illuminated emergency-stop. The actuator improves the safety in connection with mobile control stations like pluggable programming devices or wireless handhelds as well as modular plant parts. The functional principle: If control stations or plant parts are connected to the overall system the active condition of the emergency-stop is signalled by the red illuminated mushroom head.
In case there is no connection available the mushroom head is not illuminated and thus has a grey transparent colour which indicates that the emergency-stop is inactive. The aim is to avoid confusion upon shutdown of the control station or the plant part and to ensure that no inactive emergency-stop is being operated and thus to provide safety at work. The new emergency-stop is in accordance with ISO 13850:2015(E) and will be certified acc. to the coming EN ISO 13850:2016.
