Muting reinvented and made safer

20 May 2018

In the automotive, packaging and intralogistics sectors material locks often need to be safeguarded against unauthorised access by means of safety sensors. Traditionally, muting processes with muting sensors have been required to clearly identify when transported goods are approaching a protective field and to bridge the passing of these goods through the protective field at the correct moment.

The new SPG (Smart Process Gating) solution from Leuze electronic has removed the need for such signal-emitting sensors. Based on the MLC safety light curtains, conveyor systems can now be made more compact. The risk of misalignment or damage to the sensors is eliminated as is the costs for their maintenance and servicing.

Furthermore, the purchasing costs, the wiring and risk of manipulation are reduced which increases the availability of the complete safety device. Particularly important for typical intralogistics applications, the height of the protective device is entirely dependent on the safety-related requirements. Synchronisation beams do not have to be taken into consideration.
