Door monitoring with safety interlocks

Safety doors on packaging machines have two functions: They allow access to the machine, e.g., for maintenance purposes, and they protect the machine operator from danger. Doors that give access to moving parts of the machine have to be locked and opening the door is only possible when the dangerous movement is no longer there. The i10 Lock safety switch locks the door and, in doing so, prevents access to the dangerous movements of the machine. When used in combination with the Flexi Soft safety controller, SICK offers a complete machine safety solution.
