Now Even More Flexible - Straightforward Color Cover Adaptation on the Safety System MGB

The world-renowned safety system MGB from EUCHNER is now even more flexible and permits users to change the colors of the pushbuttons themselves.

With immediate effect the color covers for the pushbuttons on all MGBs from Euchner can be individually adapted and changed. For this purpose 5 different color covers are included as standard with every MGB delivered. No separate tools are required for installation. Simply put in place and click into position, that is it, the color of the pushbutton has been adapted, and that with degree of protection IP65. This flexibility enables the customer to realize a very wide range of installation concepts with the same MGB. If the function of the buttons should change, this change can be depicted straightforwardly with color. It is now also possible to attach symbols to the pushbuttons. Separate labels in different languages are therefore unnecessary. In addition, emergency stop devices on MGB versions with cable entries will in future be equipped with an additional auxiliary contact. This contact permits even more precise diagnostics in the control system, in particular if several MGBs are connected in series.

The MGB is a multifunctional safety system for the protection of safety doors on machines and installations. It comprises a locking module and a handle module and combines numerous functions in one device. In combination with the optional escape release, it is therefore possible to protect almost any safety door. Furthermore, it is possible to integrate customer-specific functions into the MGB, e.g. pushbuttons, selector switches, emergency stop etc. Should the space on the standard MGB be insufficient, the number of functions can be expanded via an additional control panel.
