Two-Hand Start

CE Machinery Directives EEC 89/392, 91/368, 93/44, 96/68 Norm EN 574, level 1.

The Two-Hand Start valve is used to enhance machine operator safety by ensuring that two start buttons are operated simultaneously to make sure hands are well clear of any dangerous mechanisms. Two 3/2 manual push button valves are used in conjuction with a two hand start module which operates the start-up control valve. The Two-Hand Start module will ignore a single signal from one of the push button valves, thus making sure the
operator cannot tie down one of the push button valves. To repeat the cycle both pilot signals must be exhausted and the push button valves simultaneously actuated again. The Two-Hand Start valve is supplied with CE-certification compliant to Machinery Directives EEC 89/392, 91/368, 93/44, 96/68 and to Norm EN 574, level 1.
