    The software-programmable safety controller

    Modular and intuitive configuration: the Flexi Soft safety controller from SICK. The Flexi Soft concept offers a whole range of main modules, expansion modules, Motion Control modules, and gateways that can be used to create a customized, efficient solution for your safety application. It is the ideal choice for safeguarding against hazardous points in presses and laser cutting systems used in machine building applications. It is also an efficient tool in the packaging industry, which uses machines with a large number of doors and flaps that require protective measures. In applications like these, Flexi Soft keeps the amount of wiring used to a minimum. Flexi Soft also makes it possible to network overlapping safety functions in modular machines – and integrate these into the standardized system controllers. The license-free Flexi Soft Designer configuration software offers intuitive programming, rapid commissioning, and continuous monitoring. The entire configuration can be documented in multiple languages with just one click.
