The EC machinery directive demands that there is no danger posed by machines. As one hundred percent safety is impossible to technically implement, the challenge is to reduce the risk to a tolerable level of remaining risk. In doing so the entire lifecycle of the machine – from manufacture to disassembly – must be examined to determine the dangers for people, machines and the environment, i.e. suitable risk reduction measures must be introduced during the construction phase of the machine.
Eaton Moeller offers you suitable components for reduction of the inherent risk through SRP/CS with Safety Technology conforming to the highest demands of the international safety standards! Suitable safety functions are used depending on the area of application and required level of protection against danger.
Eaton Moeller offers the foot and palm switch FAK (e.g.: for operation wearing gloves) for use in rugged and harsh environments.

Main Switch with Emergency-Stop Function
Process and processing machines require a power disconnecting device in compliance with EN 60204-1. Furthermore, standstill in an emergency must also be assured.
Maintenance and Manual Override Switches
Whole ranges of electric motors are required to operate the conveyor belts in conveyor systems. In conditioning plants, warehouses, airports etc., the individual conveyor belts are combined to a unit. The safety and availability of these systems demands that each individual drive can be isolated from the power supply. The isolation is performed using T and P manual override switches. The switch can be secured against reapplication of power using three padlocks in the off state. Maintenance and repair work can be completed in safety.
The high-performance, robust and compact T rotary switches and P switch-disconnectors are used in industry, trade and building engineering applications. The IP65 degree of protection with the top mounting switches and the switch front enable use in harsh environments. Ten basic switch types and four different construction types, in a whole range of standard switches and across a wide performance range are available. Customized circuits can also be implemented in addition to the standard configurations. The possibilities are almost unlimited. A comprehensive accessory range complements the switch range and rounds off the range of applications. The rotary switch T and the switch-disconnector P are approved conform to the ATEX directive 94/9 EC for EX-zone 22. The approval enables use in dust explosion hazardous areas.
Maintenance, manual override and safety switches perform important tasks as main switches. They prevent danger to persons, machines and manufactured goods. With maintenance and manual override switches, they isolate an electrical system from the mains.
The switch-disconnectors P up to 315 A is compact and robust. The manual operator acts directly on the contacts. The contacts are positively opened on de-energization. In addition to their use as switch disconnectors with and without the Emergency-Stop function, P switchdisconnectors can be used as On-Off switches as well as maintenance, manual override or safety switches.
The rotary switch T represents a very flexible, compact and robust modular system. The rotary switch T has a widely varied range of application uses. Customized version are available. The different rating sizes are available in up to four different construction types. Eaton Moeller now offers the following in conformity with the manufacturers guidelines: ATEX directive 94/9 EC cam switch T and switch-disconnector P up to 315 A. The switches are approved for device group II, with area of application “all except mining” as well as for category 3. The rotary switches and switch-disconnectors in surface mounting enclosures with the ATEX approval are used in dust hazard areas, for example in mills, metal grinding plants, wood processing and wood processes areas, cement factories, the aluminum industry, the foodstuffs industry, grain storage and processing facilities, agriculture, pharmaceutical industry, etc.
From material handling systems to plastic injection molding; from car washes to doors on trams: the position switches LS-Titan are used wherever there is exact positioning requirement. The analog position switch with a voltage or current output also enables a range of new applications for the LS-Titan, where mechanical position detection could only provide insufficient information up to now – for example, detecting the position with opened flaps for flue gasses. The position switches LS-Titan and the Emergency-Stop button from the RMQ-Titan range provide the ideal link to the Emergency-Stop actuating element. These devices are quick and straightforward to fit, as well as being highly reliable in operation, -properties that are critical for use on machines and systems. They have degree of protection IP 66, which allows them to be used in a wide range of applications.
The safety of all personnel working in production halls must be ensured at all times. Protective doors and hinged flaps keep people out of hazardous areas. Where an attempt is made to open a protected door or flap during operation, the hinge operated switches LSR/TS and the hasp-operated switches LSR/TKG immediately disconnect the power supply to the machine or installation.
By reliable securing and interlocking of protective doors, the LS-ZBZ increases the safety standards for the protection of personnel and processes. The LS-ZBZ operates according to one of two principles: on the basis of magnet powered or spring-powered interlocking.
Safety/position switches LS...ZB and LS4…ZB are used on centrifuges, motor and gearbox covers, presses, etc.. If the protective guard is opened, they disconnect the power and in so doing, remove the danger. LS…ZB and LS4…ZB comply with EN 1088 „Interlocks with and without mechanical securing action“. The selection of the necessary protective device is thus simplified. All safety position switches also fulfill the demands for use in safety circuits by their use of positively opening contacts
Continuous operation requires a high level of operating reliability of the components used. This is why the Eaton Moeller contactors DIL M have not just the best service life values in standard AC 3 operation, but is also excellently suited for heavy duty AC 4 inching operation. As a result, the safety is also enhanced during the setup and retooling phases of machines and systems. Naturally, these devices also have properties which serve the needs of active safety, such as positively-driven contacts, safe isolation or protection against direct contact
Up to now a series connection of two contactors was recommended for circuits of safety category 3 and 4 for compliance to the EN 954-1. Now you just need one contactor and the Eaton Moeller CMD. The contactor monitoring relay CMD serves Emergency-Stop applications compliant to EN 60204-1. It can also be used in the American car manufacturing industry, where solutions are also required which reliably detect the welding of the motor starter and which safely switch off the motor load. In its function as a safety component the CMD also receives the employers liability insurance association approval in addition to the CE mark. As a device for world markets it also receives the UL and CSA approval for the North American market.
In almost all of today‘s applications system sections feature a safety-related design. Safety-related control components are used in dangerous situations – for example when a protective screen is opened or the Emergency-Stop is actuated – for shutdown. A redundant shutdown system is often provided in order to avoid a failure of these system sections. A contactor is typically used as the shutdown device during danger. However, the contactors have a tendency to weld at the end of their lifespan, and for this reason two contactors are usually switched in series.
Secure processing of different sensor signals for example, such as those of position switches, light barriers, two-hand controls, Emergency-Stop buttons, contact mats, etc. are monitored in the logic unit of the SRP/CS and evaluated in accordance with the application requirement. Whether ESR electronic safety relays or the new safety-oriented control relay easySafety – the safe logic units from Eaton Moeller enable the realisation of applications in accordance with the international standards for compliance with the highest safety demands of category 4 to EN 954-1, PL e to EN ISO 13849-1, SIL CL 3 to IEC 62061 as well as SIL 3 to IEC 61508.
Safety relays are designed to constantly reliably monitor the signals from the safety devices and to processes them quickly. We provide one and two-channel variants for the implementation of safety-oriented applications with up to 5 enable and 2 signal current paths. The internal logic of the safety relays monitors the safety circuits (Emergency-Stop, safety door, etc.) and activates the enable paths. The enable paths are switched off after actuation of the safety devices, or in the event of a fault, in accordance with the Stop category. Faults which occur in the control circuit such as an earth fault, cross-short and open circuits are quickly and reliably detected.
The safety-oriented control relay easySafety integrates not only safety, but also standard functions in just a single device – its all in one. The safety control relay easySafety certified by TÜV-Rhineland features a standard circuit diagram in addition to a safety circuit-diagram which incorporates the safety configuration. This circuit diagram can be used for standard tasks such as the processing of diagnostics messages or general control tasks of a machine. The simplicity of the easycircuit diagram philosophy has been continued so that every one of today‘s easy users will immediately be at home. With its high number of safety function blocks, it opens a wide range of application possibilities to the users on just a single device. Users remain flexible and can immediately respond to current and future changing application demands. This saves financial resources and offers investment protection in the future, and also reduces the stock keeping costs for special safety relays. Whether its in a simple or complex system, the necessary personnel and process protection are guaranteed by the compact easySafety.
Signal towers SL provide visual and audible signals of machine states, easily identifiable even at a distance. Signals are distinguishable as continuous light, flashing light, strobe light or acoustic indication, enabling their level of importance to be correctly evaluated without delay. The individual modules can be combined as required, and simply assembled by plugging the bayonet fitting into place and turning slightly. The individual modules are freely programmable by merely relocating a wire link (jumper) on each module board. This, for example, enables a dangerous machine state to be indicated by a red flashing light backed up at the same time by an audible alarm signal. To achieve this, put the jumpers of both modules in the same position on the module board, irrespective of the module position in the column.
The main switch application with an emergency-stop function up to 1600 A conform to IEC 60204-1, VDE 0113 Part 1 can be easily and cost-effectively implemented with the new Eaton Moeller products. The voltage is switched off on all current conducting circuits are when the switch is switched off using the under voltage release with two integrated early-make auxiliary contacts. Safety is guaranteed at all times in this manner when the switch is in the Off position. The early-make auxiliary contacts can always be installed – even if the circuit-breaker is equipped with a toggle-lever or rotary drive.
