ABB JOKAB SAFETY (Westland, MI) has released a new line of Safety Contact Mats for safeguarding personnel around machines, presses, robots, and other types of active equipment. Safety Mats are typically connected to a monitoring system and placed as a boundary around potentially hazardous equipment. When someone steps on a mat, the surface triggers a control signal to the stop circuit of the nearby equipment. A switch design inside the mat assures that the equipment motion stoppage is immediate, providing a valuable layer of safety in industrial environments, says the company. These new mats, which feature a dotted polyurethane non-slip surface layer, are impervious to oil, acid, or caustic substances.
