Safety Command Devices


Reliably shut off machines under emergency conditions


Safe operation of automated machines and equipment falls under a company's due care responsibility. To be sure that in emergency situations machine hazards can be prevented or reduced, safety command devices such as emergency stop devices must be used. As a supplementary measure an emergency stop device must always be available, whether during installation, while running or during maintenance, and regardless of whether this function is characterized as an E-Off (power turned off) or E-Stop (hazardous process or movement is stopped). 

The safety command devices must be easy to reach, always available and functional, and should bring the machine to a safe condition immediately. Our highly visible command devices carry out an immediate emergency stop function when there is a malfunction. This makes them ideal for protecting persons and equipment. The safety command devices from Balluff feature a compact housing so that you can install them on various machines even where space is at a premium. They are also simple to install.
