April 2021. Conductix-Wampfler, one of the world's leading manufacturers of energy supply and data management systems for moving consumers and machinery, now has Jay RadioSafe in its portfolio, the latest generation of a unique standalone safety radio solution. "Whether in highly automated factories and warehouses, robotized manufacturing islands or continuous process lines, safety should be approached at system level, globally, to go beyond the individual machine safety design and to simplify the fleet management system tasks," explains Romain Herry, Global Business Development Manager Industrial Automation at Conductix-Wampfler. Both during maintenance interventions and in normal process operation, safety conditions can be optimized with Jay RadioSafe.
Safety stops for unlimited AGVs or AMRs
Whenever required, Jay RadioSafe triggers a global safety stop for an unlimited number of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV / AGS) or Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR). "Regardless of the system configuration, Jay RadioSafe can safely stop all vehicles thanks to a radio frequency signal permanently transmitted by a dedicated safety transmitter," Herry describes the advantage.
In an emergency, Jay RadioSafe triggers a global safety shutdown with time settings and defined stops that enable a controlled emergency stop of the mobile robots. Escape routes can be defined in advance so that individual mobile robots can still exit those areas before stopping. "Once the problem is solved and the emergency stop is completed, a restart of the entire fleet can be carried out fast and easy," says Herry.
Independence through interface with robot controllers
Jay RadioSafe is a fully type-tested electronic yet wireless system with SIL3 and PLe safety levels, certified by TÜV Süd. As a versatile solution, it is easily scalable for the entire life cycle of any robot fleet. Programming and data logging can be centralized thanks to a suitable interface with robot controllers, independent of the existing navigation solution.
Useful component to save energy
Jay RadioSafe is much more than the safety guarantor of individual transport vehicles. It can be intelligently used as an energy-saving management component for the entire AGV fleet. "With a maximum consumption of only 1.5 watts, RadioSafe conserves the battery of all AGVs during downtimes. Unneeded services on board the AGVs are flexibly switched off remotely and switched on again as needed," Herry describes another advantage.
Portable emergency stop for the operator
Should technician access to the core area of the industrial plant become necessary for maintenance, repair, or process optimization, Jay RadioSafe provides portable emergency stop switches to protect them. A 3-step trigger allows operation with the button half pressed. Should the operator release the emergency stop button in the event of a fall or fright, for example, or fully depress it in the event of an electric shock, operation stops immediately. In addition, four function keys allow certain commands to be sent to the machines. With a chest strap version, the emergency stop is always within reach, leaving both hands free to work.
Jay RadioSafe from Conductix-Wampfler convinces thanks to an intelligent overall concept:
Conductix-Wampfler is the world’s leading supplier of mobile energy supply and data transmission systems. With own companies and several partners Conductix-Wampfler is present in nearly all relevant countries.
Conductix-Wampfler’s core competence lies in the development, production, consulting and installation of solutions that provide tailor-made answers for all questions to do with energy supply and data transmission for moving consumers.
The customers include crane-construction companies, manufacturers of “people mover” systems, suppliers of warehousing and conveyor technology, the automotive industry, machinery manufacturers and many more...
In addition to its undisputed capabilities in these sectors, the company is remarkable for its expertise in applications, since today, all the typical technologies for the transmission of energy and data are combined under one roof. Festoon systems, conductor rails, energy guiding chains, spring cable reels, motorized cable reels, slip ring assemblies and contactless power transmission systems. For the customers, this means consulting without bias towards a particular product, and the means to achieve the optimum technical implementation for the specific application.
Innovative and tailor-made solutions are not just confined to the products. Instead, Conductix-Wampfler stands for completely consistent concepts that cover everything from the first consultation through to the acceptance of the customized pre-assembly, test procedures, or the on-site installation. Conductix-Wampfler strengthens its leading position as an expert partner for development , delivery and service, through the performance of these out-of-house services for the customer.
