Rockwell Automation emergency stop push buttons earn TÃœV Safety Certification

<div style="text-align: left;">Rockwell Automation earned TÜV certification for the B10d Functional Safety rating on all styles of Allen-Bradley emergency-stop push buttons.

This safety certification allows users
to take the certified safety product data and include these products in
calculating the safety level of their entire control safety system.

This
helps improve worker safety because designers have greater insight into
when components, like e-stop push buttons, will need to be replaced or
repaired – to help ensure control safety system reliability.

E-stop
push buttons are a critical component for automation systems – they are
used to cease motion to help prevent injury to workers or damage to
machinery.

For example, in an emergency that might escalate into
a hazardous situation, an operator would press the e-stop button to
stop the machine or equipment, preventing further risk to the worker or
the system.

The B10d rating further validates the market
leadership position of the Allen-Bradley push button family, which the
industry already recognizes for ingress protection sealing technology,
low-voltage switching capability and excellent reliability. While many
companies self-certify for this safety rating, the Allen-Bradley e-stop
buttons were rigorously tested with evaluation, verification and
confirmation by third-party 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
22.5 mm and Allen-Bradley Bulletin 800T/H 30.5 mm.
