LBK System BUS: safety radar connected by Fieldbus
The LBK Bus system detects operator access or presence in a dangerous area. In any environmental conditions (dust, smoke, water aerosols), making it possible to dynamically set the detection area in real time. Furthermore, the Ethernet connection allows the system to be controlled remotely, with safety guaranteed by the most advanced protocols.
Maximum configuration flexibility.
The system is composed of a controller that can be connected to up to 6 LBK-S01 sensors.

  • Perfect alignment among the sensors is not necessary.
  • The software supplied with the system allows for multiple configurations: assisted automatic configuration for regularly-shaped areas and manual configuration for monitoring more complex areas.
  • Programmable muting allows the creation of differentiated intervention areas where operators can gain safe access according to production logic.

Access detection
Access detection
The system can create a configurable virtual barrier, delineating an alarm area and a pre-alarm area, providing a secure signal that can slow down or stop the machine.
Prevents restart
Prevents restart
The system can detect operator micro-movements and prevent machine restart, ensuring complete operator safety.
Dynamic setting of the detection area
Dynamic setting of the detection area
The new ISC-B01 controller allows dynamic setting in real time of the detection area, an especially useful feature in applications on independent movement systems such as MIRs
Advanced connection with the machine
Advanced connection with the machine
The Ethernet safety fieldbus permits connection between the controller and the PLC controlling the machine, to exchange complex information, such as real time operator position, allowing rapid integration with machinery fieldbuses.
Configurable by remote
Configurable by remote
The Ethernet connection guarantees greater system flexibility and remote configuration, with safety ensured by implementation of the most advanced Cyber Security protocols.
The controller manages the statuses of all the sensors, including the muting function, used to temporarily deactivate some sensors when they are not required to detect motion in the area. When properly configured, the muting function allows operators to temporarily access non dangerous areas.
Safety area 3D configurator
Safety area 3D configurator
The Inxpect Safety Application can be used to configure the alarm and pre-alarm areas in 3D and to create optimum coverage of the dangerous area using different beam angles from the sensors, which is then validated by the software once the system is physically installed.
Response time
Response time
The system response time is less than 100ms, which reduces the area required to protect the machine to a minimum.
