The Safe Robotics Area Protection safety systems from SICK are a starting point for safe human-robot interaction and enable cooperative and freely-accessible robot applications. The system comprises hardware as well as software or functional logic with tested safety functions. Not only generic but also manufacturer-specific variants are available, for example for Universal Robots, FANUC, KUKA and Yaskawa. Thanks to the detailed documentation and robot-specific settings, these variants can be easily integrated into robot control systems and, in part, configured directly via the robot hardware. Safe Robotics Area Protection ensures less downtime, optimized work processes and therefore an increase in productivity.

Safe productivity with Safe Robotics Area Protection
With Safe Robotics Area Protection, SICK is offering safety systems which serve as the basis for quick and easy protection of freely-accessible robot applications. This means that, in addition to complete safety, it enables the highest levels of productivity. The focus is on close and safe collaboration between humans and robots. Safe Robotics Area Protection has the right system for every application: The sBot Speed and sBot Speed CIP systems reduce the robot speed when approached appropriately, while the sBot Stop system triggers a safe stop.
Increase your productivity for robot applications
With speed reduction for fewer downtimes
The sBot Speed system variants adapt robot operation to the respective position of the worker, thus reducing downtime, optimizing workflows and increasing productivity. On the hardware side, they consist of a safety laser scanner, the Flexi Soft safety controller or the robot controller, thus enabling both safety and flexibility. sBot Speed can be easily integrated into the most common robot controllers thanks to robot-specific settings and detailed documentation, and configured directly via the robot hardware (UR Teach Pendant) thanks to sBot Speed – URCap.
sBot Speed is available in different variants:
Increase your machine availability with sBot Speed
More options for challenging robot applications
The sBot Speed CIP system variants are available for both FANUC robots (sBot Speed CIP – FA) and KUKA robots (sBot Speed CIP – KU) and enable safe simultaneous monitoring of multiple protective fields. This makes this safety system suitable for freely-accessible robot applications in which persons can walk behind the protected area, for example in palletizer systems. The system variants combine the microScan3 Core – EFI-pro safety laser scanner with the Flexi Soft safety controller and the EFI-pro gateway. Thanks to EtherNet/IP™ CIP Safety™ and the robot-specific settings of sBot Speed CIP, the system variants can be integrated into the robot controller quickly and safely. In addition, communication between safety system and robot control is easy to set thanks to the pre-configured parameters.
Easy integration and protection of applications accessible from behind thanks to CIP Safety
The simple solution for immediate automated restart
The generic variant sBot Stop allows a compact machine design with a minimal safety distance to the hazardous area thanks to a combination of safety laser scanner, safety light curtain or multiple light beam safety device, and a Flexi Classic safety controller. Safety functions are available as prefabricated, tested functional logic for the non-programmable Flexi Classic safety controller and can be selected quickly and easily using a rotary switch.
The sBot Stop – URCap system variant, which combines the advantages of a safety laser scanner for protection with the intuitive sBot – URCap software, allows the safety system to be configured and operated quickly and easily directly via the robot hardware (Universal Robots Teach Pendant).
