Access protection with automated pallet detection

The pallet handling machine has a material and pallet infeed, plus a pallet outfeed. To protect access to these areas, a C4000 Palletizer safety light curtain is mounted horizontally at the outfeed, where it reliably differentiates between pallets and people. This is an innovative and cost-effective solution that saves on muting sensors, signal lamps, or fence elements, for example.
