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.
