New Safety Machine Door Systems for Safe Working Conditions
The new protective machine door systems SMDA-200 and SMDA-400 are based on the drive technology for pedestrian passages, developed from the affiliate division TORMAX. Thousands of drives have proven their value all over the world and are certified by TÜV (Performance Level d according to EN 13849-1). The new system includes the technology for implementing safe torque and speed limits. This ensures that the force and permissible kinetic energy compliant with EN 12453 and EN 953 are safely maintained. Therefore, additional safety elements, such as light barriers or two-handed operation are not required, which helps to lower the overall cost.
The drive triggers an immediate change of direction if an obstacle is encountered. Thereby accidents and damages to material and tools can be prevented. Selectable signal inputs in two-channel design enable a continuous safety level. The system can be configured via an intuitive user interface, including the opening width of the protective machine door.
