Medium-sized company, ASO Safety Solutions was founded in 1984 and produces safety solutions for automated machines, gates, and for lifting, climbing, and transport vehicles.
As a global market leader in the area of tactile sensors, the company's primary focus is on the development and production of safety edges, safety mats, and safety bumpers. The product portfolio is rounded off with a range of electronic evaluators. Tactile sensors refer to the ability to detect mechanical contact, and thus stop dangerous machine movements before an accident occurs.
From development, through to the production and regular fine-tuning of the products, everything takes place at the company's main site in Lippstadt. Highly complex production facilities, a team of experienced engineers, and an in-house test centre ensure that every product is optimally designed for its respective application.
ASO Safety Solutions are used everywhere where machines, gates, or vehicles pose a hazard to users. The comprehensive system solutions enable automatic area and access protection, and the safe stopping of machines.
Safety products from ASO Safety Solutions can be found, for example, in the following fields:
Important criteria for the use of these safety sensors are the simple installation and easy maintenance of the products.
In the area of safety technology, the Automation24 online shop offers individual solutions from the ASO Safety Solutions product range. You will find safety sensors in the form of safety mats, safety edges, and safety bumpers.
The ASO Sentir® edge safety edges are pressure-sensitive sensors that are used for closing edge protection at pinch and shear points. The edges are available with five different overtravel distances. Here you can take advantage of the Automation24 service and specify your desired safety edge length via the configurator. This way, your selected products will be adapted prior to shipping and the corresponding cabling will be fitted. You can also purchase the compatible aluminium profiles on request. You thus have products that can be used immediately upon delivery.
The Sentir® safety mats are used to secure the area around machines. The machines are stopped as soon as it is detected that someone has stepped onto the mat. Injury caused by moving elements can thus be avoided. The textured surface ensures safe grip, and thanks to the ramp rails, which are also available, even heavy machines such as forklifts can drive over the mats without any problem. The different sizes and the ability to connect the mats in series facilitates the configuration of tailored solutions. As accessories for safety sensors, compatible corner connectors and attachment rails are also available.
To ensure that driverless transport systems and robotic arms are well protected, you can make use of ASO Sentir® bumper safety bumpers The bumpers protect against the dangerous effect of forces, and cause the system to come to a stop before an accident occurs. Installation heights range from 100 to 400 mm and you can choose between black and black/yellow colour variants. Enter your required length in the online configurator so that ASO Safety Solutions can produce the bumpers especially for you.
There are two options when it comes to evaluation. The first option is the 4-wire connection (cross-connection detection), which, as the industry standard, functions with a wide range of safety relays and safety controllers. The second option has been especially developed by ASO Safety Solutions for tactile sensors. Here, the Elmon Safety Relay ASO 1114-0030 from ASO Safety Solutions and a compatible terminating resistor are connected to the sensor. The advantage lies in the reduced level of wiring work requried. In order that you can optimally connect the sensors, the product range includes various connection cable lengths.
