How Larco Industrial Safety Mats Work

Zone Monitor 3000

Larco controls provide intelligence to the system by monitoring the safety mats and machine wires for malfunctions due to incorrect wiring or physical damage. This control unit is wired into the machine’s control circuit or E-stop circuit.

Larco presence-sensing safety mats work like a normally-open switch. When a person steps on the mat, the "switch" closes, sending a signal to the controller. The controller then opens the control circuit or E-stop circuit, stopping the machine from performing unsafe actions.

Larco safety mats are secured in place using a variety of trim and mounting methods that are built for a number of environments, including areas with heavy forklift traffic.
