JamAlert

JamAlert

DConT2

 

Laboratory: National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)

Summary: To better improve safety and protect workers, NIOSH developed and patented the JamAlert system, which automatically terminates power to a machine (such as a baler) when a jam is detected, and initiates a system that prevents the machine from being turned back on before the jam is cleared. The JamAlert could be adapted to machinery that is prone to jamming and/or requires a secondary level of lockout control.

Applications: This innovation could benefit workers in farming or manufacturing (i.e., baler operators).

Opportunity: NIOSH is interested in identifying partners to further test and move the technology into the workplace.
