Wireless emergency stop for machine safety applications
The Wireless Emergency Stop (E-stop) is a tool designed to help companies avoid unsafe and unproductive situations by enabling anyone to intervene in the operation of a machine wirelessly.
Humanistic Robotics' (HRI) Wireless Emergency Stop (E-stop) is a tool designed to help companies avoid unsafe and unproductive situations by enabling anyone to intervene in the operation of a machine wirelessly. The wireless E-Stop helps solve problems faster than a fixed E-Stop. It utilizes HRI's SafetySense protocol to create a wireless connection with the machine. SafetySense is specifically geared toward reliable emergency stopping, and involves HRI's proprietary two-way protocol, and multiple layers of hardware and software to continuously monitor the health of the wireless link. It can monitor via USB, CAN, or serial interface and has redundant monitoring hardware to prevent a single point of failure. It has an IP66 enclosure, which allows it to be used in harsh conditions, and has an operating temperature range of -10 to 60 C.
