Vision system redefines machinery safety monitoring

Vision system redefines machinery safety monitoring Pilz is launching SafetyEYE, the world's first safe camera system for three-dimensional zone monitoring, which could change the face of automotive production lines and other automated manufacturing environments. Compared with traditional machinery guarding, safety light curtains and laser area scanners, SafetyEYE has the potential to reduce machine downtime significantly, as well as save floor space. Moreover, the cost to install and maintain a SafetyEYE system is up to 70 percent lower than the cost for safety light curtains, mainly because a typical SafetyEYE system takes just two hours to install and configure. Each SafetyEYE system comprises a sensing device with three greyscale cameras - to give three-dimensional coverage - and an analysis unit that contains high-performance computers for processing the images, plus a programmable safety system to deliver the safety-related functions and process safety-related and non-safety-related inputs and outputs. The system is configured by means of an intuitive drag-and-drop software package, and extensive diagnostics help to minimise the time required for troubleshooting.
