The man-machine interface calls for solutions that do justice to both people and machines. The ManMachine product range combines ergonomics and precision. EUCHNER offers suitable interfaces ranging from joysticks, handwheels and hand-held pendant stations to custom electronic access control systems.
Machine functions can be monitored and controlled decentrally using hand-held pendant stations. In addition to the control function, hand-held pendant stations can also have a safety function. For this purpose, the hand-held pendant stations are equipped with EMERGENCY STOP buttons and enabling switches.
EUCHNER electronic handwheels are universal pulse generators for manual axis positioning. They are predominantly used for positioning NC-controlled axes. Different pulse rates and output stages make the handwheels suitable for all control systems. Complete freedom from maintenance is provided by the use of series HKB/HKC/HKD wear-free magnetic detent mechanisms.
These devices are always used if movements are to be controlled as a function of the manual actuation direction. Joysticks are used in areas of the steel and construction industry, in transport and conveyor systems, in systems engineering and mechanical engineering, as well as in warehousing, medicine and studios. The devices are also approved for maritime use due to their certification by Germanischer Lloyd.
The EKS provides access control on PCs and control systems in an industrial environment. EKS basically comprises two components: an Electronic-Key and the matching Electronic-Key adapter. A memory chip and an antenna are built into the Electronic-Key (RFID transponder). The data carrier in the Electronic-Key is equipped with a combined read/write and fixed-code memory. The Electronic-Key locks into the Key adapter and is held there during operation of the installation. Due to the non-contact transfer of data, it was possible to design the Electronic-Key adapter from the access side with the high degree of protection IP 67, i.e. suitable for industry. Various data interfaces are available for the Electronic-Key adapter.
