MR387 Emergency Stop

MR387 Emergency Stop

Emergency Stop Sensor

The MR387 Series Emergency Stop Sensor Systems is a new, innovative emergency signaling system that can be deployed in hazardous environments or over long distances – beyond the capabilities of conventional electromechanical solutions. The MR387 E-STOP system employs a photo interrupt scheme operating over a duplex fiber link – multimode 50/125 or 62.5/125 fiber, 9/125 singlemode fiber or 1mm POF.

The MR387 E-STOP is designed for applications where a system needs to be deactivated when the E-STOP switch sensor is depressed or any system malfunction occurs.


ISO 13850 ISO 13850 defines the characteristics and requirements for a traditional electromechanical E-STOP switch. The MR387 Sensor/Controller integrates the definition of purpose and functionality only.
