SafetyEYE is the first safe camera system for 3D zone monitoring. Where conventional technical safety solutions come up against their limits, SafetyEYE opens up new possibilities for monitoring and guarding danger points. Pilz has already received numerous awards for its work in this area,including the German Health and Safety Prize and awards from the International Society of Automation (ISA) and the German American Chambers of Commerce (GACC).
The safe camera system enables uninterrupted three-dimensional monitoring and control of danger zones. It combines intelligent sensor technology with effective control. Innovative 3D technology and the user-friendly software enable complex applications to be monitored and controlled with just one system!
The safe camera system detects and reports objects that encroach into warning and detection zones,which can be freely defined. SafetyEYE determines whether persons are present within the action radius of the hazardous movement (safety) or have accessed a zone with an increased safety level (security).
The sensing device – Monitoring
The sensing device that observes the movements comprises three different cameras. Calibration of the cameras is not necessary. Simply fit the sensing devices above the plant to be monitored. Compared to conventional safeguards, the camera system is ready for operation within a very short time.
The control unit – Controlling
The control unit consists of an analysis unit and a programmable safety system. The analysis unit receives and processes the image data. In doing so it generates the signals – detection zone violations for example – for the integrated programmable safety system. If this is the case the controller immediately shuts down the machine in question.
