Omron Scientific Technologies, Inc. has introduced the UMQ Series Safety Mats, which feature an IP67 quick-disconnect cable connector to lower costs through reduced inventory, while simplifying installation and replacement of damaged cables. The quick-disconnect feature allows for last minute cable length changes in the field and, since the cable is not attached until the end of the installation process, the potential for cable damage during installation is reduced. If a cable is damaged during installation or mat operation, it can be replaced in the field without having to replace an entire mat. The quick-disconnect enables backward compatibility with the mat cable location of current Omron STI safety mats. Cables are available in 5m and 10m lengths. Mats are available in metric sizes, yellow color for greater visibility, special angular and cut outs for uniquely shaped areas, and customized cable locations. www.sti.com Omron Scientific Technologies
