Safe Link Pressure and Position Monitoring
SafeLink provides wireless communication between the fixture mounted SEND unit and the machine control interfaced RECEIVE unit. A pressure switch is used on the fixture to monitor the circuit pressure. If the pressure switch on the fixture goes open, the RECIEVE unit communicates the changed status to the machine control through either 24 VDC, Modbus RTU RS485 or Ethernet IP protocol or Modbus TCP/IP. The machine control would interrupt the machining process. The SEND unit can also be used with limit switch based position sensing clamps to verify clamped or unclamped status for robotically loaded systems.
