ABB Robotics: Robotic safety controller
ABB Robotics’ SafeMove is a software and electronics based safety controller integrated in their IRC5 robot controller.
SafeMove 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. SafeMove delivers many safety functions and reduces the need for traditional safety equipment such as light curtains, safety relays, mechanical stops, mechanical position switches, and protective barriers. SafeMove 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.
