Safe Tool Zone – for restricting robot motion
Safe Tool Zone enables cell size optimization and simplifies the safeguarding of installations. It protects operators and enhances machine and equipment safety. Safe Tool Zone defines detailed three dimensional work zones. The zones restrict robot motion to stay either inside or outside the defined zone when the zone is activated. It is also possible to restrict tool orientation, which is very useful when the robot is carrying out an emitting process such as water jet cutting.
Safe Axis Range - replaces electro-mechanical position switches
Safe Axis Range replaces electro-mechanical position switches, increases control and flexibility, and reduces maintenance requirements. It provides extended control in up to nine axes. Both robot axes and additional axes can be supervised through Safe Axis Range. In combination with Safe Tool Zone, it can be used to define complex working envelopes for a robot.
Safe Speed - supervises speeds so operators can work close to robots
Safe Robot Speed supervises speeds at a defined level so an operator can work within the proximity of the robot. It supervises the speed of all robot parts, including the tool center point. Safe Axis Speed gives the possibility to supervise the speed of individual axes. Stopping distances, and therefore cell sizes can be reduced.
Safe Stand-Still – keep motors running
Safe Stand-Still supervises the stand-still of robot axes without having to switch the robot to Motors off. It enables operators to perform tasks, saving cycle time and wear to contactors and brakes. Safe Stand-Still secures the stand-still of selected axes.
