What is meant by ‘prevention of crash’ here?

You are here:

Defects in equipment cannot always be predicted and avoided. If, for example, an energy chain fails, apart from the damaged energy supply, the entire system can quickly get damaged and shut down for a long time. In contrast, if, for example, a break detection EC.B is installed in the e-chain, this detects a defect such as a break in the initial stages and either issues a message or directly causes the shutdown of the entire system via an NC contact.

Thus, the sensor avoids further damage and prevents the total failure of the machine, the “crash”. Our crash prevention sensors therefore protect machinery from major defects, failures and downtime, ultimately avoiding unplanned costs.
