Rockford Systems Introduces IP69K Modular eStop Safety System for Wash-Down Areas

Protects Machine Operators in Food, Beverage & Pharmaceutical Processing

Rockford Systems, LLC., a premier provider of machine safeguarding products and services, is helping simplify installation of emergency stops in facilities where hygiene and cleanliness are critical by introducing its new IP69K-rated Modular Emergency Stop (eStop) Safety Control System.

This complete, quick-disconnect wiring solution consists of environmentally-sealed safety-wired ports and distribution boxes as well as durable patch cords available in multiple lengths. Connecting eStops in series using the Modular Emergency Stop Safety Control System considerably reduces wiring costs, eases expansion and simplifies troubleshooting. Series circuits can be extended to a maximum size of up to four eStop buttons.

Rated IP69K, the Modular Emergency Stop Safety Control System provides reliable connections between E-stops and safety relays in food, beverage, pharmaceuticals and other processing applications where equipment must be carefully sanitized. It withstands rigorous high-pressure, high-temperature wash-down procedures and prevents dust from penetrating the connection which can cause it to fail.

To meet OSHA/ANSI safety standards, plant machinery must be fitted with eStops so that hazards can be averted in the case of an emergency. The Modular Emergency Stop Safety Control System allows eStops to be easily added or removed with minimal cost. Machinery can be designed with greater flexibility, plus inactive machine parts can be shut-off to reduce energy consumption.

The Modular Emergency Stop Safety Control Systems is intended for use with dry-contact safety switches.
