Two Hand Control

Use to ensure the location of both hands of a machine operator who gives a control signal for a movement which can be dangerous.

Two Hand Control


Two-hand control can be used as a safeguarding device in the single-stroke mode of operation on part-revolution clutch presses and hydraulic press and press brakes.



The areas of application include presses for metal working, powder metallurgy, printing and paperprocessing machines, croppers and similar, as well as machinery in the rubber, plastic and chemical industries.

Two-hand control panels are the preferred protection devices for use in setting-up work and single-stroke operations for feed and removal processes.

How Two Hand Safety Control Function

The machine safety is not limited to the use of safety sensors alone, but relies on the correct design of the safety interface. Two hand safety control will determine the overall safety to enviornment. A two-hand control requires constant, concurrent pressure by the operator to activate the machine. Monitoring of two-hand controllers requires a part-revolution clutch, brake, and a brake monitor if used on a power press. With this type of device the operator’s hands are required to be on control buttons, and at a safe distance from the danger area of the machine. A two hand control station circuit uses capacitive proximity switches to imitate the function of mechanical switches. A two hand control station is comprised of an isolation transformer, an enclosure, an electrically coupled isolation transformer, and a capacitive proximity switch. An adjustable two hand safety module includes both pneumatic models and electric models. Two hand safety modules are designed and manufactured to meet most industry specifications.



Brands provide Two Hand Controls

CAPTRON supplies the safeCAP two-hand control with additional safety elements such as the Protector or the control desk for tabletop installation. These combinations enhance protection and are certified to DIN EN 574. The dynamically switching SENSORswitches detect interference factors such as dirt, dust or foreign bodies. The switches can be actuated using disposable or work gloves, however.

Modules monitor the output of each mechanical switch button and deenergizes when the machine operator removes one or both hands from the buttons, providing protection for the worker actuating the hand controls.
