FREMONT, CA – Omron Scientific Technologies, Inc. introduces the ESD5020 Enabling Switch Device. CE listed to all applicable standards, the ESD5020 provides the margin of safety needed during troubleshooting, set-up, programming or servicing of robotic or automated machinery when no other safety devices are possible or practical, as required by ANSI/RIA R15.06. The ESD5020 also conforms to ANSI B11.19-2003, Section 12.3.
The ESD5020 is available with a wide variety of holder kits for easy integration into any number of applications.
