Safety Controller

The F3SX safety controller integrates the monitoring and functioning of individual safety devices such as light curtains, safety doors, and emergency stop buttons.

This increases system reliability by reducing the possibility of miswiring complex safety interlock systems or operator overwriting, while helping prevent operator tampering. The system also provides continuous data logging on the status of safety devices. Two main modules are available. The F3SX-N reports broken lines to warning displays. The F3SX-E is used with high-frequency, start-stop equipment. Individual-device modules plug into the prewired main module, eliminating unnecessary wiring and reducing maintenance costs. The system is suited for industrial operations such as robotic automotive assembly and packaging lines where safety is a prime concern.
