Schmersal’s Series BDF control box stations provide operators and maintenance personnel with the ability to E-Stop, control start up, reset and select the appropriate mode of machine operation in a single housing. At just 40 mm, the slim design of the BDF permits mounting on a machine door frame. Each control station has up to four positions for a wide variety of controls, including E-Stop buttons with or without a protective collar; pushbuttons, mushroom buttons, illuminated pushbuttons and LED indicator lights available in several standard colours; and selector and key selector switches with latched or spring return actuation. The BDF is also available with integrated AS Interface Safety at Work.
