Machine builders are increasingly having to deal with certification bodies such as OSHA, TÜV Rheinland, and TÜV SÜD. As a result, light curtains are increasingly integrated into functional safety systems. The machine's reaction time to light curtain safety events is highly influenced by the safety I/O system and the underlying safety network architecture. This talk will show how integrating openSAFETY into DataLogic light curtains can significantly improve the machine’s safety performance.
