MESCO’s Safe AGV/AMR Monitor Design Package forms the basis for HW/SW development of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) with safety functions.
Automated Guided Vehicle and Autonomous Mobile Robots systems are the future of intralogistics. MESCO accompanies manufacturers of AGV/AMR as well as component manufacturers into this future from the beginning of your safety project to market introduction and safety-relevant certification. By using proven Safety Design Packages, the time to market is shortened, costs and risks are saved and compliance with specific safety standards in the area of functional safety is ensured.
In the basic version, the Safe AGV/AMR Monitor Design Package supports the functional safety requirements of IEC61508, ISO13849 or ISO 3691-4, such as a safe stop during loading, emergency stop, safe brake, , interfaces to higher-level safety controls, safe data processing and safe I/O.
Optionally, the Design Package Safe AGV/AMR Monitor can be extended with speed monitoring with encoder master and feedback handler as well as asynchronous interfaces (UART) for processing Black channel communication from the safe Industrial Ethernet protocol FailSafe over EtherCAT(FSoE) or PROFISAFE.
