The two-hand control safety module ensures that the machine cycle begins and runs only when the operator touches both Self-Checking Touch Buttons (STBs) within half a second. The machine cycle will automatically come to a stop if either of the STBs is released. This ensures machine operator safety by positioning the operator in a safe location while the machine is in operation. The module is also compatible with existing mechanical palm buttons. It has inputs for one pair of operator buttons and four 6-amp safety outputs, as well as auxiliary outputs.
