Safety interlock switches can be used to control personnel access, shut off power, and prevent machines from starting when the position of a gate or mechanical shutter changes. These switches are perfect for protecting personnel and equipment that lie within hazardous areas, especially where high inertia rotating machines are involved.
The RSL 400 is an outstanding laser scanner from Leuze Electronic, and is underlined by its wide scanning range, reliable operation and robust build. Featuring operating ranges up to 8.25 meters, scanning angle of 270 degrees and ability to track four protective fields simultaneously makes it a perfect one-in-all replacement for multiple scanners.
The Meltric Decontactor series of switch-rated plugs hold a high degree of competitive edge and offer a whole range of benefits that are almost non-existent or too minimal in conventional plugs & receptacles in the market.
Electrical construction, maintenance and repair work all involve a great deal of attention towards safe work practices. Industry electrical publications regularly highlight the various safety issues & their remedies, including the use of tools & equipment for energized & deenergized environments, as well as utilizing the correct personal protective equipment according to the situation.
Safety is one of the core component upon which an industrial business depends. Apart from ensuring the protection of workforce, safe machines can bring positive changes in the operating efficiency and thus the competitiveness of a company. The entire process of guaranteeing maximum safety is a long & complex one, but is built upon improving functional safety. Devices ranging from control systems to protection apparatus must function correctly in order to ensure long-term continuity and safety for workers.
Founded in 1969, ZD Wines has a long history of producing world class Burgundy wines. Quality, consistency and style has been the key to success for ZD Wines as it has always strived to achieve top-quality through improvement in process.
DECONTACTOR Series Plugs and Receptacles are different from conventional devices, both in terms of design as well as material. Meltric has used spring-loaded, butt-style contacts which are commonly found on switchgear, making sure end-to-end protection is provided for all connections. The spring-loading makes sure that the contacts retain their integrity even after thousands of operations. These contacts are the best way to adjust to the dynamic market standards, eliminating any connection problems that may result from contact mating.
How did Meltric outgrow & outperform conventional technology?
A $23.6 million wastewater treatment plant in Wisconsin suffered firsthand from the pitfalls of hardwired engineering when one of the submersible mixers malfunctioned, putting the entire tank out of service for a day. This left the technicians to ponder for a more viable solution, one that would have minimum installation time and excellent performance without compromising the safety of any plant asset.
The soution? The plant’s mixers were fitted with Meltric Decontactors as they checked all the marks for an efficient, long-term solution
Meltric’s Decontactors series switch-rated plugs and receptacles provide synergetic set of features, combining the safety of disconnect switches and the convenience of a plug. Their state-of-the-art design and fabrication through high quality materials make sure users have the ability to safely make and break connections under full load during normal operation as well as faults.
Maintaining performance while guaranteeing safety is one of the most pressing concerns of modern manufacturing industries, as even the most automated units require human interventions. Equipment are most likely driven by electrical power, which as we know is higher than normal ratings. This exposes workers to safety hazards, which can sometimes be daunting and in turn reduce overall performance of the assembly line/unit.
