Machine safety flexibility
Published:  24 February, 2014

SICK says it has expanded its highly-respected Flexi Soft modular safety control system to include the new SICK FX3-MOC Drive Monitor, promising increased flexibility for safe operator intervention through a wide range of drive safety functions to reduce machine downtime and aid productivity.

Supporting all standard encoder and motor feedback interfaces, the new SICK FX3-MOC Drive Monitor is said to be ideal for a wide variety of stationary and mobile machine safety applications, especially for machines that require frequent intervention where maintaining a controlled speed is beneficial to continued safe operation.

For example, the high-performance drive monitoring of the SICK FX3-MOC enables an operator to reach into a machine at reduced risk without having to power off.
