AutomationDirect has added Schmersal two-hand control panels to its lineup of safety products. These control systems are used with a special control monitoring relay and require an operator to use both hands simultaneously when initiating a hazardous operation. This forces an operator to keep their hands on the two-hand control actuator and out of an unsafe spot when a system is performing a hazardous operation.
Panels are available in aluminum or plastic and with or without pushbuttons. Replacement pushbuttons and a legend plate are also available.
These new Schmersal two-hand control panels start at $147.00 and have a 1-year warranty.
