Dear Sir or Madam,

Safe sensor technology plays a major role particularly in complex applications, such as man-robot-workplaces. So the factory of the future requires dynamic safety concepts that guarantee flexible and modular production and safe collaboration between man and machine. Learn more about the products and solutions Pilz uses to implement safe area and zone monitoring!
Use sensors for area and zone monitoring!

How can you effectively protect areas in front of plant and machinery? Use optical safeguards for area guarding when people need to enter danger zones frequently or when material needs to be transported in or out. Light grids, laser scanners, camera systems and pressure-sensitive safety mats are the optimum devices for area guarding.
