Pushbutton with skin detection SPS-3SB-NIR
The use of gloves is prohibited at certain hand-fed machinery. For instance, it is dangerous to wear gloves while using a stationary drilling machine, because gloves can be caught and winded up by the chuck. The SPS-3SB-NIR pushbutton reminds the user to take off her/his gloves. The presence of a glove is checked while the button is pushed. If gloves are present, the button turns red and the machine does not start. This logic can be reversed for applications were the use of gloves is mandatory (e.g., food or pharma industry).
The SPS-3SB-NIR is based on Siemens 3SB-series pushbuttons and is compatible to common 22mm pushbuttons.
