MA Webinar - Testing Emergency Stop Systems

Friday 19 June 2015
f2141478c91a00a9caebbb2dbc1005af LSAVE THE DATE for this important safety webinar with Douglas Nix, C.E.T., SM-IEEE!

Most machinery is equipped with an emergency stop, but unlike the automatic guarding systems on those machines, the emergency stop system is rarely used. Large machines and assembly systems may have tens of emergency stop devices scattered over a large area. These devices can fail in ways that can’t be easily detected by automatic diagnostics, if present. Many older machines have no automatic diagnostic functions, making this situation even worse. When these systems fail unexpectedly, the results can be catastrophic.

This FREE webinar will provide attendees with the basis for setting up manual testing of these critical systems, ensuring that they will function when needed. The webinar will touch on requirements from Canadian, U.S. and international standards, and will discuss the functional safety aspects related to testing.
