Consisting of 2 conductive plates separated by an isolating layer, ABB JOKAB safety contact mats protect personnel around machines, presses, robots and otherABB JOKAB safety contact mats types of active equipment; the mats are typically connected to a monitoring system and placed as a boundary around potentially hazardous equipment. When a worker steps on a mat, a control signal is sent to the stop circuit of the nearby equipment. Featuring a dotted polyurethane non-slip surface layer, the mats are impervious to oil, acid and caustic substances. They can be affixed together and mounted to the floor with aluminum ramp rails or an integrated rubber ramp trim.
