Access guarding with muting function
Quickly and easily integrated
Muting functions control and monitor the bridging function for material transport on conveyor lines. They use the signals from muting sensors to distinguish between transported goods and persons. Depending on the application, muting functions are available in various safety sensors and control components.
Advantages for you
- Access guarding with muting function can be integrated into the safety circuit of the system control easily using OSSD outputs
- The muting functions are integrated in the devices and can be easily configured if required. Safety functions do not need to be programmed.
- 2 and 4-sensor muting as well as muting functions in safety sensors and in control devices provide solutions for all muting applications.
Typical areas of application for muting solutions
2‑sensor muting, timing controlled
The universal solution for entry and exit. The muting sensors are arranged in a cross formation.
2‑sensor muting, sequence controlled
Only for exit zones. For increased requirements, e.g., related to the shape and position of the load. The muting sensors are aligned parallel to each other.
4‑sensor muting, timing controlled
For entry and exit. For increased requirements, e.g., related to the shape and position of the load. The muting sensors are aligned parallel to each other.
