Personnel protection is becoming increasingly important in automated processes. Wherever machines perform high-risk movements, the relevant health and safety regulations must be observed. Even if the operator is momentarily distracted, shearing, crushing, and impact injuries must be prevented.

Together with the appropriate safety control units, active photoelectric protective devices such as safety thru-beam sensors and safety light grids ensure that a stop is applied on detection of unauthorized access or if someone reaches into a danger zone.
