English term or phrase:SICK
Cannot think of how to translate Sick in the following expression : "Sick Photoelectric Safety Barrier' - any ideas ?? Many thanks in advance.
Safely equipped for all cases
According to EN 292-2 (Machine safety), movable guards must be provided with safety switches. Protective door bolts for protective devices work in tandem with SICK safety switches. On deliberate opening of the protective device, the N/C contact of the safety switch is opened and the hazardous motion of the machine is brought to a standstill.
Developed for harsh industrial everyday use
SICK products easily withstand harsh conditions such as impacts and vibrations. Opening, closing and locking is reliably guaranteed over a long lifetime. SICK safety switches are available in plastic or metal versions.
