1 HP motor/brake/gear box
Guards machinery, robots or processes
Reduces floor space requirements


Anywhere that a machine operator interfaces with a machine, robot or process is an ideal application for the Defender.

Visibly safer than light curtains, the Defender combines safety interlock switches/controls capable of achieving up to PLe, Category 4 level safety with a movable physical barrier restricting access to dangerous machine movement while at the same time containing process driving hazards such as weld flash/sparks, flying debris, mist, spray and other containment and exposures.

Protects operators from application driven hazards while restricting access from machine/robot operation both physically and electronically with optional safety rated switches and controls.

Switches/controls capable of reaching Cat 4 (per 954-1), PLe (per ENISO 13489-1) and/or SIL 3 (per EN62061) when integrated properly.

Armorplex™ Curtain Material: Durable, Resilient 40oz flame resistant (NFPA 701) high tensile ASTM tested black curtain material.

Multiple motor positions to best fit your application.
