Allen-Bradley emergency stop push buttons from Rockwell Automation are now available with TÜV-certified B10d Functional Safety ratings.
This provides users with published certified safety product data for calculating the safety level of their entire control safety system and helping to ensure system reliability.
B10d Functional Safety data is a measure of safety related product reliability and a critical component in the calculation of Performance Levels required by the new EN/ISO 13849-1: 2008 standard.
Rockwell Automation has published this data in a library that is integrated with the widely accessible SISTEMA database, allowing it to be easily incorporated in calculations without manual entry.
Used to cease motion to prevent injury to workers or damage to machinery, E-stop emergency stop push buttons are acknowledged as a critical component for automation systems.
The B10d rating further validates the market leadership position of the Allen-Bradley push button family, which the industry already recognises for ingress protection sealing technology, low-voltage switching capability and excellent reliability.
The Allen-Bradley E-stop buttons were rigorously tested with evaluation, verification and confirmation by a third-party authority, TÜV Rheinland, a leading international service group documenting the safety and quality of products, systems and services.
The TÜV-certified E-stop push buttons are available now. The B10d rating certification complements the comprehensive family of E-stop push buttons, which includes the Allen-Bradley Bulletin 800F 22.5mm and Allen-Bradley Bulletin 800T/H 30.5mm models.
