Inxpect LBK-S01 sensors don’t shy away from the dirty work.
Optical devices can experience problems caused by dust, smoke, fluids or swarf generated by production processes.
The LBK-S01 increases safety without compromising productivity.
Safety is a top priority for Inxpect. To make workplaces safer, we have developed a sensor that prevents accidents through the use of the safest technology in the world: radar. The LBK-S01 offers protection from access to dangerous areas, anti-collision systems for bridge cranes, prevention of robot workcell restart and prevention of access to loading areas with Independent Motion Systems (MIR).
Virtual safety barrier
The LBK-S01 sensor creates an invisible barrier that detects when an operator crosses it and enters a dangerous area, putting the machine into a safe condition to protect the operator
These sensors also work in the presence of optical disturbances
A radar sensor is extremely resistant to environmental disturbances. This makes it possible to work without false alarms in environments where there is smoke, dust, water and machining swarf
LBK sensors are the first (and the only one to date) radar sensors in the world that have obtained SIL2 certification for use in industrial safety applications.
Radar functions natively in 3D, and can therefore protect dangerous areas volumetrically. Operators cannot elude detection by radar no matter how hard they try!
When a sensor detects an operator entering a dangerous area, it starts to function in high-sensitivity mode, which also detects operator micro-movements from breathing and prevents accidental machine restart.
