Product description

The multifunctional safety module UG 6980 provides protection of men and machines by enabling and disabling a safety circuit. It is used together with e-stop buttons, safety gates, light curtains with self testing (type 4) to IEC/EN 61496-1, 2-hand buttons on presses for metal processing and productions machines with dangerous closing movements (type III C to EN ISO 13851) and safety mats, edges and tape switches. Simply select 1 out of 6 safety functions on rotary switches - ready. This reduces divers types of safety modules in stock and simplifies your disposition.
