ROCKWELL Automation , has announced that all Guardmaster industrial safety products will take the name Allen-Bradley Guardmaster.
Since early November 2004, Allen-Bradley Guardmaster has become the only Guardmaster brand available on the market. As a result, Rockwell Automation's national distribution network can now offer all customers a single point of contact for the supply and technical support of fully integrated automation packages. This includes industrial safety solutions that meet all relevant Australian Standards.
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster family encompasses all products that have, until now, been also available in the Guardmaster brand. These include a range of presence sensing safety devices, interlock switches, emergency-stop devices and safety relays. In addition, the Allen-Bradley Guardmaster range is complemented by additional safety devices, such as safety PLCs (GuardPLC), safety drives (DriveGuard), and soon-to-be-introduced safety networks (DeviceNet safety).
