Mechan Controls is fully aware of the pressure that its customers are facing. Its safety products help to avoid downtime, increase output, reduce waste and keep the use of energy to a minimum.

Further, Mechan Controls is committed to continually improving its environmental performance, and it complies with all the relevant environmental legislations. The company is also forward thinking in educating its staff regarding the environmental effects of their activities within the business.

But perhaps it is its ongoing innovation process that is the defining characteristic of Mechan Controls. Innovation within the field of safety enables Mechan Controls to offer unique technologies in machine guarding solutions, like the worlds first RFID safety switch invented by Mechan controls in 1972. This enabled the safety standards today to evolve around EN ISO 13849-2 7.2.5 Category 4 ((A single fault including common mode faults does not lead to the loss of safety function, the single faults are detected at or before the next demand on the safety function)).

Such developments reflect the amount of knowledge and knowhow that Mechan Controls has. Today hundreds of thousands of applications use Mechan safety products for their reliability and, above all, ability to meet all safety standards.
