Linking handling robots

An increased level of automation brings about increased safety requirements for systems and processes. In the case of conveyor systems in particular, numerous safety switches and sensors are therefore installed in order to protect the systems. Flexi Loop from SICK enables a cost-saving, safe series connection of up to 32 safety sensors while maintaining the highest level of safety. Furthermore, Flexi Loop transmits detailed diagnostics information about the location of and reason for circuit protection events, guaranteeing system productivity at all times.
