Contact mats for safe activation and deactivation of machines, devices and automatic doors

BBC Bircher Smart Access contact mats are used for detecting people or objects within a defined area.

In conjunction with the EsMatix 3 safety switching device, they form a certified system for safeguarding danger zones, and thus for protecting people. In combination with the EsMatix 3 safety switching device, the BBC Bircher Smart Access safety contact mat according to EN 13856-1 is type-tested and corresponds to PLe, cat. 3 according to EN ISO 13849-1.

Pressure-sensitive contact mats secure fork lift trucks

Use as forklift safety equipment

The pressure-sensitive mat deactivates the vehicle immediately if there is an unplanned exit from the operating platform. Furthermore, it provides a non-slip, vibration-damping and, as such, ergonomic standing surface.

Stepping mat – electric surface switch for protecting passengers

BBC Bircher Smart Access step mats are used to protect people from getting trapped in the doors of public transport vehicles.

They safeguard the entrance area and therefore protect passengers from injury. When anyone steps on the surface of the mat, or a load is placed on it, two parallel contact surfaces are pressed together and the electrical circuit is made. 

ES-Button

The ES-Button is a flat button used to control different machine functions.

Regardless of whether a door is to be opened by its pulse, or an application is to be started, the ES-Button is the interface between man and machine. Mounted horizontally or vertically, it can be easily actuated by hand, foot or arm.

The robust design even enables it to be used in contaminated and moist environments.
