What is a Perimeter Guard?
A perimeter guard, also known as a safety fence, is a barrier used to keep employees clear of an area for safety, security, privacy, or to simply keep the work area looking clean and organize. Applications for perimeter guards commonly include robot cells or machinery where the guarding system cannot be attached directly to the machine. Due to the wide variety of perimeter guarding needs, we create custom perimeter guards that can be made from t-slotted aluminum, steel, electronic safety devices, wire mesh, polycarbonate, or a mixture of multiple product lines for a custom safety guard.
No matter your needs, our Barry Sales team along with our FazTek partner are here to help you through the process of designing and building your next custom perimeter guard or safety fencing system.

The application possibilities range from the monitoring of simple components such as E-Off, through to the integration of optoelectronic sensors.
- Flexible installation and replacement
The pluggable screw and spring-cage terminals allow the safety relays to be installed flexibly and replaced quickly.
Safety relay as port of the safety function - The safety function ensures that the drive can be shut down safely at all times – when the sensor is triggered and if a fault is detected. Here, the safety-related part of a control system (SRP/CS) in accordance with ISO 13849-1 is the central component necessary for execution of a safety function. This component evaluates signals coming from the sensors, detects cross-circuits on the sensor side and faults in the contactor. It also ensures safe shutdown of the drive. A safety sensor alone cannot fulfil these tasks – safety sensors are always just part of a safety function. In the simplest case, a safety relay performs the necessary tasks. The safety function is usually triggered by a person. Here, the technology of the safety relay recognizes the signals coming from the sensor and, via the shutdown paths, disconnects the supply voltage to the contactor – and the contactor in turn disconnects the power supply to the drive.
For the right safety relay give your local Barry Sales representative a call 636.326-1211.
