Guardian Mats may be used for area guarding surrounding industrial robots and other automated plant equipment. This presence-sensing mat operates on the principle of a basic normally open switch. When weight is applied to the mat, the inner ﬂexible contact elements touch and “close” the switch.
Typically these mats are wired to the emergency motor controls to signal the equipment to stop. Applications for ME151 include numerous automated manufacturing plants surrounding: industrial robots, packaging machinery, presses, and material handling equipment.
