  • New adjustable safety system:
    • Certified by TÜV (Technical Inspection Association) to meet safe collaborative robot standards.
    • “Reduced mode” allows the robot to operate at reduced speeds/force limits when it is around humans.
    • 16 Additional IO channels can be used as general purpose IO or as special safety IO signals.
