Safe EFI-pro System


Safe integration for a productive interaction

Safe EFI-pro system is the result of the consistent development of the successful EFI interface and enables intelligent safeguarding of AGVs, robots and other challenging applications. The industrial Ethernet-based EFI-pro network technology enables the quick exchange and transmission of safe and non-safe data throughout all levels of communication. The central component is the EFI-pro gateway. It ensures safe and fast integration of innovative sensor solutions from SICK as well as direct integration of robot controls into the Flexi Soft safety controller via EtherNet/IPTM CIP SafetyTM. The Safe EFI-pro system is therefore a crucial enabler for implementing Industry 4.0.

Optimal interplay

The Safe EFI-pro system combines the modular Flexi Soft safety controller proven in practice with the microScan3 EFI-pro safety laser scanner. Safe device communication via the EFI-pro gateway enables quick and easy networking of the system components. Actuators of other manufacturers, such as robot controls, can be safely connected via EtherNet/IP™ CIP Safety™.

Excellent safety components perfectly combined

The Flexi Soft safety controller with EFI-pro gateway ensures intelligent networking of the system components.
The microScan3 safety laser scanner is outstanding in every aspect thanks to the innovative safeHDDM® scanning technology.
For example, robot controls can be safety integrated into the safety system via EtherNet/IP™ CIP Safety™.

Safe networking via EFI-pro guarantees an optimal interplay in the safety system, thereby enabling the use of innovative sensor functions in challenging safety applications.
