Stop time measurements
Stop time measurements are used to determine the total response time of a system from the triggering of the safety device through to the dangerous movement coming to a stop. The resulting time can then be used to calculate the required safety distance between the safety device and the dangerous movement.
Our technical equipment allows us to carry out stop time measurement for you on the following safety devices:
Active Opto-electronic Protective Devices (AOPD) (light curtains and light grids) in accordance with IEC 61496
Enabling devices, with two-hand control systems, in accordance with ISO 13851
Pressure-sensitive protective devices (pressure-sensitive strips and mats) in accordance with ISO 13856
Interlocking guards, doors, flaps and gates with safety switches in accordance with ISO 14119. Brochure in PDF format
Active Opto-electronic Protective Devices responsive to Diffuse Reflection (AOPDDR) (laser scanners) in accordance with IEC 61496
