The SSC-1500 dual-microprocessor-based control system and the SSC-3000 solid-state press automation control system from Rockford Systems Inc. are safeguarding systems that comply with OSHA regulations and ANSI safety standards.
The dual-microprocessor-based control system, featuring a larger keypad/display, is designed for use on part-revolution-clutch power presses and press brakes. It uses redundant inputs from devices such as palm buttons, foot switches, and light curtains to provide control reliability. Standard, custom, and remote operator-style control boxes are available.
The solid-state press automation control system features a larger color touchscreen and is designed for use on part-revolution-clutch mechanical power presses. It is a rack-mounted, modular control system with expandable options that permit changes to be made or features to be added or deleted as press requirements change. The standard control rack, furnished with a power supply module and a main CPU card, is designed to hold eight additional cards for expandable options.
