Schmersal SATECH Guarding Systems



Schmersal SATECH Guarding Systems 

Schmersal is proud to partner with SATECH to provide guarding solutions in the US and Canada.

These guarding systems are of low carbon steel construction. Upright posts and panel frame members are a solid extrusion for extra durability. Fence mesh is constructed by 2 mm diameter steel wire, arc welded at each junction. The construction methods utilized make the assembled system impact resistant up to1600J in ISO 14120 dynamic resistance tests – exceeding the standard set by many automotive manufacturers. 

Fencing mesh is spaced 19 mm apart with cross members every 100 mm. This predominantly vertical slot opening reduces interference when trying to view processes on the far side of the fence. The design also deters workers from climbing the fence by providing no toe holds, when panels are installed with the cross pieces inside the hazardous area. 

Components are finished using hard-wearing epoxy polyester powder paints. Typical constructions consist of yellow (RAL1021) upright posts with black (RAL9005) panels and accessories. Components can be produced in custom colors to meet individual customer requirements. 

These systems are custom designed for each client. We collaborate on the design to meet the specific requirements of each customer. SATECH’s patented 3D AutoCAD program with a built in library of parts enables the design of complex layouts in a very short time. A layout can be designed directly onto a customer’s drawing – which immediately picks the optimal modular components. This service also provides a 3D drawing and a complete parts list which can be easily understood by assembly personnel. 

The custom designed solutions will include all of the necessary installation hardware. Panels and posts can be directly bolted together, or use patented adjustable clip systems. The system utilizes patented captive fastening systems, in accordance with Machinery Directive 2006/42/CE; if a panel needs to be temporarily removed, the fastening hardware will remain in place so pieces will not be lost. 

The modular panels of each series are available in a wide range of sizes. Besides the standard fence mesh, panels are also offered as sheet panels, either opaque steel or transparent heavy duty plastic. Panels can also be of mixed materials, such as top fence mesh/bottom sheet panel, or have custom apertures. Systems also offer several types of doors for access to the protected areas. Additional accessories to finish off the system include kick plates, cable duct supports, and reinforced linear joints. 

We also offer a wide range of compatible safety sensors, locks, and door handle assemblies for the complete safety solution.

Carlo Gavazzi Solid State Relays and Contactors with Integrated Monitoring



Carlo Gavazzi is pleased to announce the launch of their new RG..M Series of single-phase solid state relays and contactors with integrated monitoring features. The RG..M consists of solid state switches that integrate monitoring features for quick and timely failure detection, besides the switching function. Timely failure detection eliminates the need for re-work and prevents scrap, leading to better production throughput and better quality products. Detection for mains loss, load loss, SSR open and short circuit, SSR internal fault and supply out of range are now possible without a need for external components. The RG..M of solid state contactors and relays is equipped with an Alarm LED for visual indication of fault presence, and an alarm transistor output for remote signaling.

The RG..M solid state relays are available with either an integrated heatsink, RGCxM or without the heatsink, RGSxM. Ratings go up to 660 VAC, 65 AAC (for the RGCxM) and 90 AAC (for the RGSxM). The RG..M Series is controlled with a 4 to 32VDC input signal, and must be supplied with 24 VDC. 

Typical applications for the RG..M include plastics machinery, packaging, semiconductor wood-processing, and drying equipment, in a situation, when an immediate detection of load or relay failure is required. 

The RG..M adds to the portfolio of RG SSRs with monitoring, which already includes single-phase SSRs with partial load loss detection and 2 and 3-phase devices with system monitoring.
