Safety Control Devices
ABB Jokab Safety control devices are used to directly start and stop dangerous machine movements. We offer several different types of control devices to meet different needs.
ABB Jokab three-position devices (or hold-to-run devices) can be used for troubleshooting, programming and test running in situations where no other protection is available or feasible. With a three-position device the operator can either press harder in an emergency or release the device to stop the machine. Main benefits include Ergonomic; Adaptable; Easy safe connection with AS-i & Anti-tampering option for more safety. Main features include Modular device; Up to 2 extra buttons; M12 and other types of connection; Model with emergency stop button & Up to PL e/Cat 4.
ABB Jokab two-hand device can be used when it is necessary to ensure that the operator is outside and must be prevented from reaching into the hazardous area. The JSTD25 replaces the traditional two-hand device. With a JSTD25 two-hand control station you have a prepared two-hand unit that is easy to install, while utilising the good ergonomics of the Safeball. Main benefits include Ergonomic; Shorter safety distance thanks to the Safeball™; Easy installation & Easy mode selection with integrated sensor. Main features include 1 NO + 1 NC / Safeball; M12 connection available; Possibility of Emergency stop button & Model with Eden sensor integrated.
ABB Jokab Safeball consists of a spherical ball containing two embedded pushbutton switches, one on each side of the ball. To be able to start and operate a machine both buttons must be activated. The risk of unintentional activation is thereby minimized and the device is simple and ergonomic to use. Safeball can be utilised for either one-hand or two-hand applications. For a two-hand control device the operator needs to have a Safeball for each hand to be able to operate a machine. If one or more pushbuttons are released a stop signal is given to the machine. Main benefits include Egonomic with several grip possibilities; Low but distinct activation force & Flexible mounting. Main features include 1 NO + 1 NC; Several cable lengths & Up to PL e/Cat 4.
