Banner Engineeringís new PICO-GUARD
Fiber Optic Emergency Stop Button is designed to work in conjunction with the PICO-GUARD
Controller and other optical elements in personnel safety and equipment
protection applications. The e-stop button is recommended for use with Bannerís
plastic fiber optic cable to provide a simple, quick means of connecting and
disconnecting the fiber. Models are available with fiber entry/exit from either
the same side or opposite sides of the housing. When paired with the PICO-GUARD
Controller, the e-stop button meets Safety Category 4 applications (per ISO
13849-1) and is certified for use in harsh and potentially explosive
environments. The button directly connects to PICO-GUARD
Controllers, allowing for the easy integration with other safety devices into
one convenient safety circuit. With an impact-resistant enclosure, the e-stop
button is rated IP65 and complies with ANSI
NFPA 79 and IEC 60204-1 emergency stop requirements.
