SBV System Bus.
The first multi-area,
dynamic 3D safety radar
Available early 2021
SBV System Bus.
A new class of safety radar: variable aperture, fast restart times, dynamic configuration and multiple detection fields.
Access detection
Access detection
First safety function: a 3D, variable aperture virtual barrier with up to four different detection fields, providing a secure signal to control machinery.
Restart prevention
Restart prevention
Second safety function: safe presence sensing to prevent machinery from starting as long as operators are in dangerous areas.
Dynamically selectable field of view
Dynamically selectable field of view
The field of view is dynamically selectable both in range and in horizontal aperture (from 10 to 100 deg. in 10 deg. increments): perfect for moving applications.
Advanced ethernet bus connectivity
Advanced ethernet bus connectivity
The Ethernet safety fieldbus simplifies the integration of the SBV System Bus with any machinery or robot, and allows it to exchange complex information, such as real time operator position.
Remote configuration and maintenance
Remote configuration and maintenance
IP connectivity allows configuration and management of the system from any point in the network.
Muting function
Muting function
The system can be configured to temporarily deactivate some sensors when they are not required to detect motion in the area, allowing operators to access parts of the working area.
SBV System Bus:
safety and productivity together at last
Maximum flexibility.
One control unit, from one to six sensors: small to large, simple to complex, a solution for every requirement.
  • Automatic background detection and removal allows the system to adapt itself to changing conditions in the work area.
  • 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.
