Emergency-stop push buttons
August 20, 2010 by Mary Del
Rockwell Automation recently earned TÜV certification for the B10d Functional Safety rating on all styles of Allen-Bradley emergency-stop push buttons. This safety certification allows users to take the certified safety product data and include these products in calculating the safety level of their entire control safety system. This helps improve worker safety because it gives designers greater insight into when components, like e-stop push buttons, will need to be replaced or repaired, to help ensure control safety system reliability.
The B10d rating certification complements the comprehensive family of e-stop push buttons, which includes the Allen-Bradley Bulletin 800F 22.5 mm and Allen-Bradley Bulletin 800T/H 30.5 mm.
