SX Series safety laser scanners protect personnel, equipment, and mobile systems within a user-defined area. They continuously scan a 275° area to create a two-dimensional protected zone that must be crossed to reach the hazard. They are suitable for horizontal, vertical, and mobile applications.
A robotic weld cell is protected on multiple sides by hard guarding. Between work cycles operators must be able to access the weld cell to retrieve completed work pieces and load new material. Used to safeguard access points to the weld cell, an SX5-B safety laser scanner can increase machine uptime and productivity.
Pallet transfer conveyors are used to move heavy loads to the shipping area. Both the pallets and the conveyor pose risks for accident and injury and must be safeguarded. An SX5-B safety laser scanners safeguards the loading and unloading stations on the conveyor and enables a continuous flow of pallets through the system.
