Safety systems for automating material flows
Safeguard Detector

Natural protection by material

Your Benefits

  • With the certified safety system for material feeding, you save both time and money: An additional safety assessment is not necessary, and elaborate mechanical protection systems are not required
  • Implement the system in tight spaces thanks to the very compact sensor housing
  • You can count on the reliable detection of different materials such as cardboard or plastic
  • You can also integrate the system into existing safety controllers and easily retrofit existing machines
  • Take advantage of fast format changeovers and high machine availability


Natural protection by material

Increase the safety and productivity of packaging machines with the modular Safeguard Detector safety sensor. The Safeguard Detector consists of two MultiPulse photoelectric proximity sensors, and the Flexi Soft safety controller or the UE410-SD evaluation module. The Safeguard Detector safely detects whether a movable physical guard is located at a previously defined position, e.g., the packaging material in the carton magazine of packaging machines. If there is sufficient packaging in the carton magazine, then it is not possible to reach into the hazardous area while the machine is running.
