Banner Intros 2-Handed Machine Controller
Two-handed machine controller.
Minneapolis, MN — Banner Engineering Corp. is introducing the DUO-TOUCH® Run Bar with STB Buttons for two-hand control machine actuation. The Run Bar easily interfaces with the company's Two-Hand Control Modules, SC22-3 Safety Controllers or other Type IIIC control systems to provide convenient, reliable actuation. The new run bar minimizes the possibility of defeat and accidental actuation, and is ergonomically designed.

The new product uses robust, 13-gauge cold-rolled steel construction and a unique design for maximum ergonomics and safety for machine initiation. In addition, its diverse-redundant, self-checking, microcontroller-based photoelectric STB Buttons minimize the risk of defeat. The STB Buttons are also immune to ambient light, EMI and RFI interference, and they provide high excess gain to cut through heavy contamination. Plus, the STB Buttons feature bright status LEDs to indicate power, output and fault. For added convenience and installation flexibility, models with an integrated emergency stop button, along with a variety of accessory brackets and telescoping floor-mounted stands are available.

Applications include punch and power presses; cutting and forming machines; riveting and swaging machines; heat staking machines; table-top robots.
