FMS-cradleGUARD – Wireless Transmission of Safety Relevant Signals from Cradle to the Operator’s Station

FMS-cradleGUARD
Features
  • Reliable transmission, without slip rings, standard batteries with long lifetime, optional 24 VDC
  • Explicit text messages on which cradle the fault lies, safes time and money
  • Compact package can be fit to most machines, robust, sealed aluminum housing
  • 3 independent inputs for pintle lock status, wire break detection, cradle tilt switch, etc.

The FMS-cradleGUARD system was developed to improve safety and decrease downtime on older machinery. The current use of slip rings to obtain signals relating to the pintle lock status and cradle tilt are maintenance intensive and with the limited information provided contribute to production downtime. They are more frequently a source of error rather than a contribution to machine safety! With the FMS-cradleGUARD, the safety relevant signals are transmitted directly from the payo cradle to the operator’s station. The explicit indication of the faulty cradle allows for fast, reliable trouble shooting, and therefore the ability to put the machine back into production as quickly as possible.
