Flexi Loop - Safety For Every Industry
Sick Logo
Decentralized integration of safety switches and sensor


The decentralized Flexi Loop integration design enables cost-saving cascading of safety switches and sensors within a machine module as well as setting up extensive diagnostic options. 


The use of Flexi Loop allows integrating cost-efficiently up to eight sensor cascades with up to 32 dual-channel safety switches and safety sensors each via unshielded 5-core standard cables and standard M12 connector technology. This is technically and economically interesting with regard to machines and plants featuring a large number of places to monitor.

  • Compatible with all sensors from other manufacturers 
  • Transfer of detailed diagnostic information
  • Integrated standard inputs and outputs
  • Power supply for sensors is include
