Courtesy: Banner EngineeringThe Banner Engineering 30 mm Mount Illuminated Emergency Stop Pushbutton combines status indication and safety. With bright, highly-visible illumination, the new E-Stop is ideal for diverse emergency stop safety applications, helping to provide users with enhanced safety and productivity on the manufacturing floor, the company said.

Featuring Banner EZ-Light logic, the 30 mm Mount E-Stop pushbuttons provide an illuminated yellow base when the button is armed and the machine is enabled to run or is running. When the button is pushed, the yellow illumination turns to a flashing red indication to alert operators of an emergency stop condition. Users can easily reset only the pushed button or buttons, readying the device efficiently with minimal downtime. The yellow illumination can also turn to a steady red indication when a stop condition exists by applying an external signal via the M12 QD connector. To meet diverse application requirements, the e-stops are available with two-color yellow and red lighting, red lighting or a non-illuminated black base.

Offering a IP65-rated design and 30 mm mounting base, the e-stop pushbuttons allow convenient installation with no assembly, individual wiring or additional enclosure required. For applications requiring a series of e-stops, multiple buttons can be interfaced and series connected with CSS Series Hookup Cordsets. Flush (surface) mount models are also available with standard, illuminated, lockable and illuminated lockable pushbuttons. Also, the E-Stop button has “Safe Break Action” to ensure the safety contacts will open if the contact block is separated from the actuator.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
