Open Gate Alarm System Reduces Accidents

The EdgeAlert alarm is easy to operate and can be installed on new or existing swing gates, slide gates, tilt gates or scissor gates.  It includes a 120 VAC plug-in power supply and can also be powered by four long-life alkaline “D” cell batteries.  A Single-Pole, Single-Throw 30V, 2A, 60W Relay Output is provided to connect to other alarms or safety controls.  A dual-channel processor system is self-monitoring and will display a “fault” signal if a sensor or wiring problem is detected.   
This patent-pending safety device from Wildeck helps reduce accidents and OSHA violations by warning workers when elevated mezzanine platform gates are inadvertently left open.

Trapped key interlocks for power isolation from Tapeswitch are configured for machine guarding and lock-out on hinged and sliding doors, gates and fences.

Fail-Safe: Making Automated Metal Fabrication and Welding Safer

Eden is a non-contact safety sensor used on interlocked gates and hatches for non-magnetic, non-contact closure safety that has built in diagnostics and quick disconnect.  The maximum sensing distance is 15 mm ± 2 mm. Up to 30 Eden sensors can be connected in series to achieve the same safety level in the safety circuit. It is also possible to connect safety light beams and E-stops in the same safety circuit.(Click on photo to enlarge it)
