Components or systems that protect industrial machinery, operators or moving parts from injury or damage from electrical, mechanical or other potential hazards.
Industrial Machine Safeguarding Categories

Emergency Stop Switches (183 suppliers)

Emergency stop switches are devices that users manipulate to initiate the complete shutdown of a machine, system, or process.

Industrial Floor Mats (463 suppliers)

Industrial floor mats include rubber mats and matting, modular floor mat systems, and other matting for traction, impact protection, worker ergonomics and comfort. They can include functional features such as ESD protection.

Industrial Safety Gates (108 suppliers)

Industrial safety gates are designed to restrict the movement of people and objects through controlled spaces.

Intrinsic Safety Barriers (87 suppliers)

Intrinsic safety (IS) barriers are devices that limit the current, voltage, and total energy delivered to a sensor in a hazardous area or flammable environment in order to prevent an explosion.

Light Curtain Controllers (50 suppliers)

Light curtain controllers send stop signals to machines that are guarded by light curtains, photoelectric transmitters that project an array of synchronized, parallel infrared light beams to a receiver.

Light Curtains (236 suppliers)

Light curtains are photoelectric transmitters that project infrared beams to a receiver. They are used to guard openings and work spaces in or around machinery. When an opaque object interrupts the infrared beam, a stop signal is sent to the hazardous process to protect personnel or equipment.

Lockout and Tagout Devices (87 suppliers)

Interlocks and tag out devices "lock out" valves, electrical switches or other components. These devices are used typically during service or maintenance of machinery or process equipment.

Machine Guards (129 suppliers)

Machine guards provide a physical barrier between an operator and hazardous points on a machine to prevent accidental injury and provide protection from flying debris, contaminants and noise.

Mechanical Safety Interlock Switches (118 suppliers)

Mechanical safety interlock switches couple a moveable guard door with the power source of the hazard. When the guard door is opened, the power is isolated, ensuring that the machine does not pose a hazard while an operator requires access.

Noncontact Safety Interlock Switches (84 suppliers)

Noncontact safety interlock switches couple a moveable guard door with the power source of the hazard. For noncontact actuating interlock switches, the guard door is linked to the control circuit contacts via a magnetic or electronic field.

Perimeter Guards (62 suppliers)

Perimeter guards are guardrails and security fences as well as safety devices that produce sound waves when a given perimeter is breached.

Pressure Sensitive Safety Edges and Safety Bumpers (43 suppliers)

Pressure-sensitive safety edges and safety bumpers are machine safeguarding devices that sense changes in pressure.

RF Safeguarding Devices (10 suppliers)

RF safeguarding devices are used to control machine operations by detecting changes in the RF field.

Safety Blocks (11 suppliers)

Safety blocks prevent damage to equipment or personnel by stopping the ram and die of a press from closing whenever dies are being repaired or adjusted.

Safety Laser Scanners (30 suppliers)

Safety laser scanners are used to monitor activity within a dangerous work area. They can be used in stationary or mobile applications.

Safety Mat Controllers (38 suppliers)

Safety mat controllers monitor areas where injury is possible due to moving mechanical parts or other similar hazards. When pressure is detected on a mat, a stop signal is sent to the surrounded machine.

Safety Mats (158 suppliers)

Safety mats are presence-sensing devices used to guard a floor area around a machine or robot.

Safety Monitoring Systems (75 suppliers)

Safety monitoring systems monitor and collect information from machines and operations. If a safety fault occurs, they can signal an operator to take appropriate action, or perform the action automatically.

Safety Relays (168 suppliers)

Safety relays and control modules differ from conventional relays in that they have force-guided or positive-driven contacts.

Safety Sensor Switches (102 suppliers)

Safety sensor switches are placed in enclosures to prevent accidental contact with live electrical connections.

Stack Lights and Machine Lights (152 suppliers)

Stack lights and machine lights are used for alarm and machine status indication. They can be supplied with audible alarms and be used as flashers or steady light configurations.

Two Hand Safety Modules (23 suppliers)

Two hand safety modules help prevent injury to machine operators by keeping their limbs away from dangerous machine movement.
