Access protection with muting on belt conveyors

Tray stacks are automatically fed to the pallet handling machine using the (dual) belt conveyor. During this process, a miniTwin safety light curtain reliably secures access to the conveying line. The benefits of the miniTwin are its lack of blind zones and the various different brackets that allow quick and easy mounting. The muting function is used during the interaction between the light curtain and Flexi Soft safety controller in order to properly differentiate between people and materials. Four muting sensors allow flexible setup for inlet and exit monitoring.
