A tough guy who thinks for himself

Safe protection zone monitoring can also be used for robotic applications

For safe protection zone monitor in rugged conditions such as dust, dirt, rain, light, sparks or vibrations, the safe radar sensor PSENradar, in conjunction with the configurable small controller PNOZmulti 2, offers the optimum solution: in addition to outdoor applications and areas in woodworking and metalworking, it is now also possible to safeguard robot applications because the solution achieves a higher category Cat. 3 / PL d.

The new radar sensors PSEN rd1.2 and the new analysing unit PSEN rd1.x I/O PN are available for this purpose. What’s more, the self-teaching background function ensures that changes can be made within the warning or protection zone during operation, without the need for a new configuration. Benefit from higher availability as a result.

The safe radar system, in conjunction with the configurable small controller PNOZmulti 2, offers a safe, complete solution for protection zone monitoring – including conformity assessment. Additional interfaces such as Ethernet and Profisafe also mean that it is easy to use in retrofit applications for example.

The advantages:

  • Higher category Cat. 3 / PL d enables robotic applications to be safeguarded
  • High flexibility thanks to optimised sensor alignment and individual protection zone configuration
  • Open to retrofit applications thanks to additional interfaces
  • One-stop shop: Complete solution including conformity assessment

The second generation of light curtains, PSENopt II, provide safe access to the production process and provide finger, hand and body protection, depending on the requirement. The first Type 3 safety light curtains are specifically designed for applications up to PL d of EN/IEC 61496-1. Type 4 light curtains are also available for applications up to PL e in accordance with EN/IEC 61496-1/-2. As the units are so robust, PSENopt II sensors provide protection against shock, collision and vibration and so are suitable for use in rugged industrial environments. The operator can evaluate the essential causes and system defects responsible for the machine stop by means of the LEDs. Downtimes are reduced as a result.

The safety gate system PSENmlock provides safe interlocking and safe guard locking for personnel and process protection up to the highest safety category PL e. The safe guard locking is enabled by the two-channel control of the guard locking. That makes the switch particularly suitable for machines with dangerous overrunin which guard locking up to PL d or PL e is necessary.

Phoenix Contact Axioline
The modular station communicates with a PROFINET controller, e.g., a distributed control system, via a bus coupler. As an option, up to eight PROFIBUS PA segments can be connected to the individual proxy outlets in a compact way. To ensure the individual segments are immune to interference, appropriate shield connection technology is available.
