Additional Dold Safety Relays from AutomationDirect

December 21, 2022

AutomationDirect has added new models of Dold safety relays to their line of safety products. This addition includes more motor standstill monitoring relays with models that support muting, as well as safety relay extension modules with more outputs for safety system expansion.

The new Dold safety relays start at $167.00 and come with a one-year warranty.

Safety relay modules use monitoring logic, circuit protection, and redundant relays to provide fail-safe operation. Positive guided contacts are reliable for safety applications. Relay modules are available in E-stop, two-hand, safety gate, safety mat, light curtain, and speed safety relay models.

Safety devices such as light curtains, safety mats, and E-stops are used to detect when a hazardous situation arises. To ensure the proper action is taken when these devices are triggered, a dependable control device is required.

Safety rated PLCs are one option but can increase the cost and complexity of the safety circuit considerably. Safety relays are a better option for small or simple systems that have a few to a moderate number of safety devices.

Safety relays reliably monitor safety input devices and prohibit machine operation if any hazardous conditions are detected. Contrary to a standard electromechanical relay, safety relays employ various switching, protection, and alerting functions to ensure the safety circuit performs when it counts.

Dold also manufacturers Speed/Standstill Safety Relay Modules that are available from Automation Direct.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
