Protection of converter furnace platforms

There are special hazards for operating staff on converter furnace platforms, meaning the platform must be secured. The safeRS safety radar sensor is an electro-sensitive 3D protective device for safe personal detection with very high machine productivity. It protects stationary applications in accordance with PL d or SIL 2 in line with ISO 13849-1 and IEC 62061. The system is resistant to dirt, dust clouds and flying sparks and can therefore be used even in difficult ambient conditions.
