Economic protection of assembly cells

In an assembly line with various assembly cells, hazardous points must be safeguarded. Open access points to the hazardous point used for loading and unloading can be reliably monitored with safety light curtains such as the C4-RD. The C4-RD is an economical solution that can be seamlessly integrated into the machine design. Automatic restarting of the machine can be implemented with the user-friendly Flexi Compact safety controller. It can be configured quickly using the intuitive Safety Designer configuration software. The manipulation-proof STR1 transponder safety switch is also used on assembly cells with small doors.
