Safety Sensors: Introduction

  • Safety sensors are input devices for the controlling unit to determine or indicate the safety of men and machine. Safety sensors also monitor the movement in hazardous and protected area, restricting the entry into it. Safety sensors ensure a protective work environment and reduce the wear & tear of the machine.
  • Various types of safety sensors works on different principles proximity sensors rely on the changes in electromagnetic signal, optic sensors rely on the changes in wavelength of the light, safety light curtain works according to the photodiode principle, while environmental sensors sense the changes in the environment.
  • The signals from the sensors are given to the control unit and control unit is responsible for the electromechanical activity.

Rise in Demand for Safety Sensors due to Increase in Industrial Automation and Safety Systems

  • Safety systems, integrated with machinery control systems, can be highly effective in mitigating risks while providing effective and productive machinery operation
  • The evolution of design of machines has played a significant role in increasing the demand for safety sensors. Environmental health and sciences (EHS) regulations are also fueling the implementation of safety devices at the work place.
  • A connected enterprise can help identify risks and offer new insights into where safety-related shutdowns and incidents occur and where further assessment and mitigation might improve worker safety
  • Safety sensors offer several advantages; however, their reliability is questioned, as the shutdown due to sensors causes huge losses
