LBK System: The first ever, radar-based volumetric safety barrier
The LBK System has been designed for use around hazardous machinery and robot automated areas providing perimeter or
area access detection. An affordable SIL2 Volumetric Safety Barrier, the LBK System is built around FMCW radar smart
sensors, with dynamically configurable presence sensing areas (warning + danger).Suited for application where smoke, dust shavings, machining waste, splashes, usually lead optical detectors to generate false alarm,
the LBK System can be easily configured through the provided PC Software application.
Operator protection, robust to dust and smoke
The use of safety devices for personnel, workplace protection and in machine safety can vary depending on the individual
manufacturing markets. However there are plenty of industrial applications that may require safety barriers where traditional
optical or pressure sensitive-based solutions cannot be applied. Where light curtains, laser barriers, or safety mat fail,
the LBK System is the solution.
Fields of application
- Robot automated areas
- Hazardous machinery
- Packaging machinery
- Food and beverage industry
- Material handling equipment
- Special machine construction
LBK-C22: the control unit
The Inxpect LBK-C22 is the Safety barrier control unit used to monitor up to 6 LBK-S01 smart detectors. Intervention
of any single detector results in deactivation of the safety output. The LBK-C22 control unit can be configured through a provided
application, connecting a PC with a USB cable. Sensibility adjustment, depth of the warning and danger areas can be easily configured
as well as auxiliary output relay functions. The configuration parameters also allow to set the system in order to work with an
external EDM and manage Muting requests or Restart interlock functions.
LBK-S01: the smart sensor
The Inxpect LBK-S01 smart motion detectors are based on FMCW radar technology, a proven technique that guarantees best in class
performance at detecting and tracking motion. Unlike traditional motion sensors based on infra-red laser or microwaves, thanks to its
advanced architecture and to Inxpect’s proprietary system design, LBK-S01 can compute in real time the distance if the moving personnel reaching
unsafe areas. The LBK-S01 is undisturbed by smoke, dust, shavings, machining waste, splashes, resulting in a dramatic reduction of false alarms, and significantly increasing the efficiency and productivity of the plant without compromising safety.
