The IN 300 and IN 3000 series are inductive systems whose optional cubic or cylindrical sensors detect the presence of metal. Integration of the manual restart and external device monitoring functions in the evaluation modules of the IN series bring about considerable savings in safety relays, as three (IN 300) or six (IN 3000) sensors can be connected to each module.
The category 4 C4000 micro safety curtain is now available in an IP67 housing. Thus non-contact area safeguarding requiring the highest possible safety category complying with IEC 61496 can also be realised wherever process conditions may involve temperature fluctuations, or cleaning with steam or aggressive detergents.
With the RLS 100, Sick has introduced a safety laser scanner complying with IEC/EN61496, Type 3.
The SMS Safety Muting System is a rapidly installable complete system solution for differentiating between persons and material insertion at dangerous machines.
