Banner Engineering Corp.: Fiber optic safety system
Banner Engineering (Minneapolis, MN) offers Pico-Guard™, a new fiber-optic safety system that directly replaces mechanical safety interlock switches to safeguard potentially dangerous machines.
This combination of control-reliable noncontacting photoelectric and fiber-optic technologies provides a low-cost alternative to comparable methods of machine safeguarding. Eliminates the need to run electrical wiring to the machine or hazardous area. Durable fiber optic cables can be easily routed to multiple machine guard points or hazardous areas making conventional copper wires that carry electrical current to the guarded points no longer necessary.
