The “Smart Process Gating” muting process, which completely forgoes the need for signal-emitting sensors and is based on the MLC safety light curtains from Leuze electronic, was selected as TOP 3 finalist for the next GIT Security Award from the readers’ poll.
In intralogistics, automotive and packaging industry, material locks often need to be safeguarded against unauthorized access by means of optical safety sensors. Previously, muting processes with signal-emitting sensors were required in order to clearly identify when transported goods are approaching a protective field and to bridge the passing of these goods through the protective field at the correct moment. As a result of the SPG (Smart Process Gating) method developed by Leuze electronic, based on its MLC safety light curtains, these sensors are no longer needed.
This new process was selected by the jury with representatives from BHE, TÜV, VDMA, ZVEI, integrators and users and was included as a finalist in the voting and readers’ poll for the 2019 GIT Security Award in Category A – “IT Security and Safety in Automation, Cyber Security.” Until the end of August, all readers and users of GIT Security and the international edition GIT Safety were eligible to vote, as were customers and partners of the nominated companies worldwide. They decided by voting which three of the nominated products would be the winners in the final. The final decision about who receives the GIT Security Award trophy will be made at SPS IPC Drives at the end of November in Nuremberg.
