ME151 Safety Mat for Machine Guarding
The ME151 Guardian Mat is a pressure sensitive mat designed to provide a stop signal when a person weighing more than 35kg (77lbs.) steps down on the mat. When a down force is applied to the surface of the mat, the two Alumaglas contact elements meet sending a stop signal to a controller. A separate reset button should be located in a safe area. The ME151 Guardian Mat is not intended to continuously detect the presence of an individual. The ME151 Guardian Mat is safe when used for its intended purpose, and is often used to stop the dangerous motion of hazardous machinery.
Optional controllers are used for monitoring the safety inputs from the mat. If the wiring is cut or there is a fault in the mat system, a signal is sent to the motor controls to stop operation.
Beveled aluminum trim retainers are used to secure the mat to the floor.
ME151 Guardian Mats may be wired in series to create a continuous sensitized area.
Our mats are custom manufactured to your
exact specifications for size and shape.
Additionally, sensitivity may be specified
at time of manufacture.
