Throughout any industry you will find hazardous equipment. Schmersal starts by asking two questions. First, what is the potential to cause bodily harm? Second, are we protecting the machine process or protecting the person? Yes, I'm sure everyone can think of a machine that is not very safe, but most will give the typical response of "I Know What I'm Doing". Safe guarding a machine with Schmersal Safety products is not to dampen your productivity, but to maintain or increase your productivity at the same time as to better protect your safety and the safety of others in your facility that may not be properly trained. With any Schmersal safe guarding application there has to be a balance between machine safe guarding and training to make the process run as safely and effectively as possible. Below we will show the Schmersal products we have to offer along with providing essential safety information about safe guarding a machine. There are many ways to safe guard a machine, and we are experts at working with your application to help you specify the most optimal solution for your machine.

Schmersal Pulse Echo based non-contact safety sensors are the latest technology on the market offering a non-defeatable safety sensor that is tamper proof to any ambitious machine user attempting to gain access to a restricted process. Schmersal Pulse Echo technology uses RFID signals between the sender and receiver to indicate when the machine safe guard is in place or open. Schmersal takes this a step further and integrates this technology into its standard safety products turning them into a advanced hybrid safety product.

Sometimes a movable machine safe guard is just not practical. When these situations arise, we like to use the Schmersal Safety Light Curtains and Grids. Schmersal Safety Light Curtains and Grids are best suited for applications where objects or people need to move in or out of a hazardous area while controlling their access. Schmersal Safety Light Curtains and Grids come with many features, which include blanking, muting, and flashing. One feature that sets Schmersal Safety Light Curtains and Grids apart from their competition is that they use fully enclosed aluminum extrusions making them more suitable for high vibration applications and less susceptible to misalignment. Typical beam widths on these safety products would be 14mm and 30mm for light curtains, 200mm and 500mm for light grids, and single beam for light barriers.
Along with the products highlighted in this page, we also offer many additional Schmersal safety products and services. Some of the products not mentioned above are the Schmersal Emergency Stop Cable Pull Switches, Schmersal Two Hand Controls, Enabling Devices, Solenoid Interlock Switches, Safety Mats, Safety Edges, and Safety Hinge Switches.
