Our SmartGuard™ 600 controllers bridge the gap between a safety relay system and a safety PLC. They are ideally sized for applications that cannot be solved with safety relays, or are very cumbersome to solve with relays, but are not complex enough for a traditional safety PLC like a GuardLogix® or GuardPLC™ controller.

Use the SmartGuard 600 controller in safety applications including:

  • E-Stop
  • Light Curtain
  • Safety Gate
  • Two Hand Control
  • Multi-zone Control
  • Perimeter Guarding
