Safety solution for AGVs – versatile, cost-effective, safe communication with each other

Do you have unique requirements for your automated guided vehicle (AGV)? With our wide range of standard and safety technologies, we can implement your requirements quickly and easily. Our customized safety solution not only includes many safety criteria such as the integration of safety laser scanners, Emergency STOP buttons or the safe evaluation of positions and speeds. It also offers solutions for orientation, signaling and drive technology as well as support for AGV control. This enables all AGVs, for example, to be switched off centrally by a safe emergency stop signal – very easily via LAN, Wi-Fi, 5G and much more.

 

The most important AGV-relevant safety functions – such as the integration of safety laser scanners, E-stop buttons, or the safe evaluation of positions and speeds – can be realized very easily and without additional safety control with the safety technology from Bihl+Wiedemann. Moreover, this solution also offers many different building blocks for other non-safety-related functions, such as signaling, drive control, and even support for AGV control.

Advantages of our solution for AGV

Large safety
construction kit

We put together an optimum solution for your AGV from a wide range of safety technologies, e.g. for connecting the safety laser scanner from SICK. Our solution can also support the actual vehicle control system, AGV drive technology and sensor-based navigation and localization systems.

Fieldbus-independent
communication

Our range of solutions for AGVs enables safe data e.g. via PROFIsafe, CIP Safety, Safety over EtherCAT, openSAFETY, Safe Link and ASi. Communication via PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, EtherCAT, CANopen is also possible.

Optimized
design

For use in an AGV, we optimize the housing according to your individual requirements. In addition, various connection types ensure maximum flexibility.

Safe
Link

Cost-effective, safe data exchange between AGV transport systems and with stationary machine modules via Ethernet, 5G or WLANeven when using different control systems and fieldbus protocols. Safe Link thus enables a global emergency stop function.
