Banner Engineering Machine Safety

Protecting employees, safeguarding against machine hazards

Banner produces a wide range of safety-related products that protect personnel and equipment.

Safety Interlock Switches respond when a mechanical guard opens. Interlock switches feature "positive opening" contacts for high reliability regardless of environmental conditions and withstand attempts to override the switch and defeat the system. Dozens of configurations are available, in Compact Plastic, Compact Metal, Hinge, Locking, and Magnet styles.

Safety Light Curtains protect personnel from injury and machines from damage by guarding points of operation, access, areas and perimeters. With self-checking circuitry, Type 4 light curtains provide control reliability and high levels of fault tolerance. Type 2 safety light curtains are a cost-effective light curtain safety solution for guarding lower-risk applications, where the result of an accident is only a slight injury. Type 2 light curtains feature a large field of view and use fault exclusion to ensure the integrity of safeguarding.

Industrial Safety Controllers and Modules provide an interface between safety devices and the machines and processes those devices monitor for an easy-to-use safety control solution. Two-Hand Control Modules monitor the output of each mechanical switch button and deenergizes when the machine operator removes one or both hands from the buttons, providing protection for the worker actuating the hand controls.

A full line of Safety Switches is available for interlocking mechanical guards with machine stop circuits. Multiple mounting configurations are available. Banner Safety Switches feature positive opening safety contacts (not dependent on springs), and most models also offer monitoring contacts.
