safePXV/PGV – Precise control and safe positioning of AGVs according to SIL 3/PL e

Safety applications according to “SIL 3/PL e” require strict compliance with the highest safety directives in order to optimally protect humans and machines at all times.

While this safety level was previously associated with high cost and time investment, users now realize it more simply than ever before with the safePXV and safePGV positioning systems.

Based on a multi-redundant technology, these systems enable safe absolute positioning according to SIL 3/PL e with one single sensor. safePXV offers the perfect solution for linear absolute positioning; safePGV for reliable navigation of automated guided vehicles (AGVs).

The safePXV positioning system allows absolute positioning in accordance with SIL 3/PL e using only one sensor. Due to its easy handling, it is suitable for a wide range of applications—like exact positioning of electric monorail conveyors (EMC) in assembly lines, or for use in stacker cranes.

With its innovative technology, the safePGV is ideal for navigation of automated guided vehicles (AGV). Besides absolute positioning, the sensor provides all values needed for accurate control. In addition, it ensures the minimum distance between the AGVs at any time, guaranteeing the safety of personnel in the area.
