As an industrial safety product, safety sensors have saved numerous lives over the years. They are often used in the manufacturing industry to inform the employee operating the machinery about a problem occurring. Safety sensors are usually connected to a computer, which monitors the various tasks being completed by the machinery.
There are many different safety sensors your workplace or laboratory can have installed. The break-a-beam safety sensors are useful for when workers enter a dangerous area, or you can install perimeter guard safety sensors, which work in the same way as break-a-beam safety sensors. Perimeter guards decrease injuries by preventing other people from touching dangerous parts on a machine, or hazardous areas in a laboratory.
