The question of lockout and the use of safety PLCs as a means to meet the lockout requirements comes up more and more frequently these days. Can Safety PLCs be used for lockout? Safety professionals don’t always agree on this controversial topic!
During the Free Safety Talks that we did with Schmersal Canada and Franklin Empire, this hot question came up, so I thought I’d cover it off in a video. If you need some specific help with an application like this, please get in touch with Doug directly.
There is a lot to say, and in this video I try to cover off the reasons why Safety PLCs and Lockout don’t always mix well.
