Description

Typical existing equipment used to isolate motive power are not designed to handle the frequency of access required for modern machinery, and changing out disconnects is expensive and inherently an unsafe job. The Safety Lockout System, SLS, is a system to safely disconnect machines and facilities from electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic power, provide automatic zero energy verification in order to protect personnel, and comply with industry standards to prevent unexpected start-up. This webinar will review LOTO procedures and relevant standards and concepts for achieving compliance, along with the advantages of the SLS as an alternative.  Topics will include:

  • The challenges with manual disconnects
  • The challenges with using a contactor as an isolator
  • UL 6420 Equipment Used for System Isolation and Rated as a Single Unit
  • OSHA acceptance for System Isolation Equipment use

Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will have a better understanding of LOTO requirements and how a Safety Lockout System may be a more appropriate alternative for their manufacturing facility.
