Robust and safe: Schlegel emergency-stop switches

In dangerous situations, emergency-stop switches can protect from serious injuries or even safe life. Schlegel emergency-stops convince customers in the whole world: Mechanical robustness, outstanding functionality and safety as well as the attractive design are good arguments for using our emergency-stop switches. Our switches are TÜV certified and available in different shapes, dimensions and suitable for our standard and AS-Interface contact blocks.

Emergency-stops with illuminated status indication active/inactive

In order to avoid the mixing up of active and inactive emergency-stops it was necessary until recently to lock away or cover the inactive emergency-stop to make it unrecognisable as soon as the relating operating panel or plant part was no longer connected to the overall system. Based on the new EN ISO 13850:2015 emergency-stops now can also indicate the actual operating status by a corresponding illumination. In order to increase the work safety and better recognisability of inactive emergency-stops Schlegel has developed emergency-stops which signal the active and inactive status according to this principle.

Self-monitoring Contact Blocks for Emergency Stops

The self-monitoring contact blocks developed by Schlegel work reliably even in case of negligent assembly or mechanical damage. The functional principle: In case of a negligent assembly or a mechanical damage (separation of contact block from the actuator) the self-monitoring emergency-stop contact block ensures the immediate automatic activation of the emergency-off signal. The installation is switched off and can only be restarted after successful trouble-shooting.
