Safety mats are used to protect people and machinery from harm, and will detect the presence of personnel on horizontal surfaces (usually the floor). Used in conjunction with safety relays, the safety function is triggered when a person steps on the mat.
Safety contact mats provide a wide horizontal detection area and are used to safeguard dangerous areas in industrial and production automation settings. Stepping on the mat triggers an immediate "stop" signal in order to prevent endangering movements. Tapered and straight edge mats are available for added configuration flexibility.

Tapered mats have an integrated taper profile ideal for placement without requiring additional edging. A single 6m cable is included to allow direct connection in a 4-wire circuit.
Straight edge mats are designed with flexibility in mind. Two quick-disconnect ends allow for easy single or multi-mat wiring in either 4-wire or 2-wire circuits. The straight edge allows butting of additional mats and use of optional metal trim kits for securing to floor.
With a diamond plate aluminum surface designed for heavy industry applications, steel wheel carts, and similar equipment, these safety mats are built to last and can survive welding debris, hot parts, metal chips, and foundry splatter.
