Safety Sensing Mats
Safety sensing mats are an innovative means of protection that can be used in virtually any industrial environment. These mats are highly sensitive and can be actuated by pressing them at any point on the entire mat. When properly installed with the safety controllers (sold separately), these mats can monitor any area.
Field tested for over 25 years, the mat is both moisture and abrasion resistant. Ribbing on the top and bottom prevents water and oil build-up. The switching elements are fully protected, but also very rugged and reliable with an operating life of several million cycles.
All safety mats also include an aluminum edging with a PVC covered cord channel. This edging helps secure the mat in place as well as provides a bright yellow safety cue for personnel in the area. The snap-on corner pieces all have lead exits for easy cord routing.
These safety mats operate using a four-wire fail-safe system. A very minimal current flows through the sensor at all times. If at any time, the current is disrupted by something activating the mat, the separate controller deactivates the machinery connected to the safety mat.
*Please note that the safety controllers are sold separately.
Applications for these mats include:
- Machine operation control
- Guarding of automated assembly lines
- Robot area guarding
- Automatic door operation
- Process cycle control
- Hazardous area guarding
- Industrial duty construction
- Moisture, chemical and abrasion resistant
- Easy installation - No special floor prep
- Meets or exceeds OSHA, ANSI, and RIA safety standards for safety interface modules
- Automatic or manual reset capability
- 6' cord is standard
