Allow your staff the ease of mobility around your operations while still maintaining the important fundamentals of communication, control with an added layer of safety.
Emergency Shutdown Systems (ESDS) through the use of portable handheld radios give you remote shutdown capability for your entire operation.
This feature is activated via a button located on the lapel mic and on the body of the radio itself. It communicates with a head unit located at the plants control panel which interprets the radio shutdown signal & performs the shutdown feature which in turn knocks out conveyor’s, cones, jaws, screeners or any other items as part of the shutdown sequence.
The ESDS signal always takes priority over communication signals to ensure a plant shutdown.
The system can work with a single handheld or multiple handhelds. Tones can be integrated into the signal so that you can have multiple plants utilizing this system working side by side and shut down each plant independently or if you desire have both shutdown on one signal.
This safety-based system when implemented in the correct sequence is the best approach when it comes to protecting your staff & helping you achieve OH&S compliance.
If a worker perceives an unsafe situation, they can press the emergency button on the device and shut down the entire plant. The advantage of a radio system is that the employee doesn’t have to be within reach of the tagline to shut down a plant when imminent danger is noticed.
