The SafeMove is a software and electronics-based safety controller integrated into the IRC5 robot controller. Provides safety-rated supervision of robot motion, enabling leaner robot cell solutions and more collaborative applications where robots and operators can work more closely together. Offers various safety functions and reduces the need for traditional safety equipment such as light curtains, safety relays, mechanical stops, mechanical position switches and protective barriers. This allows organizations to save money on installation and maintenance, the co. states. The controller also enables more compact cells by restricting robot motion to precisely what is needed for a specific application, instead of relying on more inflexible mechanical stops.
