IDEC’s Safety Commander merges industrial-grade safety with HMI tablet.
IDEC Corporation released its HT3P Safety Commander, a hand-held device that makes handling an HMI tablet more secure in an industrial setting while allowing the integration of safety features like hardwired emergency stop (e-stop). The Safety Commander provides an ergonomic hand grip and strap – for both right- and left-handed users – with the ability to rotate the tablet to portrait or landscape orientation. The device also includes one hardwired e-stop button with LED indicator and a hardwired 3-position enable switch. Other features include a USB Type-C port for tablet charging, a 5-meter cable and IP54 protection.
