Radar sensors are used in a wide range of industries, particularly where optoelectronic sensors reach their limits. A prerequisite for their use is an overall assessment of the machine, which we are happy to help with. http://wwww.pilz.com
Safety-related functions covered by the safe radar system PSENradar include danger zone monitoring and rear access protection. While danger zone monitoring brings the machine to a safe state as soon as someone enters, for example, rear access protection prevents the machine restarting automatically if there are people still in the danger zone, in a maintenance situation for example. You’ll find some application examples below.
The radar sensors have a self-teaching background function, so, for example, material waste can be deposited without violating the protection zone and bringing the machine to a stop. That guarantees higher productivity.
