C6 Multifunction Safety Controller



The C6 Multifunction Safety Controller acts as an interface between various Tapeswitch sensing devices and a machine or process control. It is designed to monitor up to six zones consisting of 1 to 3 B-Series Light Curtains and/or 1 to 6 other sensing devices. The C6 safety controller provides power to all connected B-Series Light Curtain emitters and receivers and monitors the output signals. In addition to the light curtains, the C6 safety controller interfaces with various pressure-sensitive, normally-open switches made by Tapeswitch including ribbon switches, sensing edges/bumpers, and switching mats.
