Base Guardian

The Base Guardian™ system requires six wires and continuously monitors only the pallet in the machining envelope. The pallet being loaded is ignored during the unload/reload process until it enters the machine. Once inside the machine enclosure, Guardian's™ "focused field" monitors the pallet. Accomplish immediate full-time machine communication by wiring directly into a feed-hold or e-stop control. Guardian notifies your machine immediately of any critical pressure loss.

Base Guardian Plus

The Base Plus Guardian™ requires eight wires and adds a second Machine Tool Receiver to install outside the machining envelope. This unit can check pressure on the incoming pallet before the machine indexes it into the machining envelope. Accomplish the external query with M-codes as long as sufficient spare codes available. Once indexed, the Machine Tool Receiver inside the machine enclosure monitors the fixture full time. The Master Control queries the Machine Tool Receiver as often as desired. You may also wire into the feed-hold or e-stop loop for full-time immediate machine communication.
