Dec. 17, 2017 – AutomationDirect has teamed with ASO GmbH who, since 1984, has been providing ASO Safety Solution products such as safety edges, mats and specialized safety relays.
Safety mats and edges are used to protect people and machinery from harm. A full range of sizes and lengths of mats and edges are in stock for immediate shipment. Safety mats detect the presence of personnel on horizontal surfaces usually the floor. The safety function is triggered when a person steps on the mat. Tapered or straight edge styles allow configuration flexibility. Safety mats are cULus rated and safety edges are cURus compliant. Safety edges can be used on any surface, usually near possible crushing or shearing points and are touch-sensitive devices that detect presence at possible danger points. The ASO Safety Solutions safety relay module is a specialized relay used to wire both mats and edges for fail-safe triggering of the intended safety function, describes AutomationDirect.
