UR Safety System Configuration


Building on our last webinar in which we discussed the basics of collaborative robot safety, this session will look into how the UR safety system can be configured to reduce risks that have been identified during the risk assessment. We will look at limiting robot force, power, momentum and speed, applying joint position or speed limits, restricting the robot workspace with safety boundaries, and interfacing with other equipment through safety rated IO.
