Command devices are of great importance for the man-machine interface in the area of industrial applications. For example, they are mounted in switch-boards, control panels, two-hand control panels, in lift manufacture and on materials-handling plants, including conveyors. Manual actuation of the devices starts operating sequences and functional processes or serves to bring these to an end.

Hinged Guards

These safety switches are suitable for hinged safety guards, which need to be closed to ensure the necessary operational security.


Solenoid Interlocks

Schmersal Solenoid Interlocks, operating in combination with control elements of a machine, e.g. fail-safe standstill monitors or fail-safe delay timers, ensure that sliding, hinged and removable guarding devices, such as grids, hoods or doors, cannot be opened until hazardous conditions (e.g. running-down movements) have come to an end.


Electronic Safety Sensors

Schmersal magnetic safety sensors serve to monitor the position of sliding, hinged and removable safety guards.


Safety Consultancy Service

Schmersal Safety Consultants provide customers with qualified answers to their questions, for example, which type of safety system to use, how to integrate the safety system within the control system and functionality of the machine and how to configure a programmable electronic safety system to optimally meet both the safety requirements and the productivity specifications of the machine.
