Safety Systems

Integrating a safety system into your industrial automation applications can provide a safer workplace for your machinery and operatives, boost productivity with seamless, uninterrupted production, and reduce the overall environmental impact of your business operations by alerting your team to potential issues within the process. 

Alerting your operatives to safety issues doesn't always have to mean a full machine stop.  With smart safety technology from Sick, Siemens and Pilz; production will continue as intelligent safety equipment enables swifter response times to production critical issues.

Sick Flexi Soft programmable safety solutions 

Since 2010, Axis Controls have been specifying and integrating the Sick Flexi Soft programmable modular safety controller system within our electrical control panel solutions. This is our 'go-to' modular safety platform due to its' reliability and ease of use for end-users.

The controller can grow on a module by module basis as a given task evolves. With this in mind, our Flexi Soft applications can be perfectly adapted to different scenarios, saving effort and unnecessary expensive inputs. Expansion modules include; I/O, relays, motion, and communications.  The Sick Flexi Soft safety modules diagnostic interfaces and configuration facilities enable rapid commissioning, component replacement, and troubleshooting.

Pilz Safety 

Axis Controls use standalone Pilz safety relays in most of our standard control panel designs, delivering certified safety.  Pilz PNOZ safety relays monitor safety functions throughout your industrial applications; such as E-Stop, safety gates, light barriers, light grids, two-hand controls, pressure sensors, and so much more! 

With our experience of practical safety systems, using a large range of Pilz safety products, we can design the right solution for your machine safety application.
