A new electronic device has been developed to guard against individuals gaining entry through the product entry and exit ports into our irradiation facility for industrial sterilization.
This device uses the output from electronic sensors and pressure mats to assure that only the transport cabins may pass through these ports.
Any intention of personnel trespassing is detected, the process is stopped by the safety system, and the source is placed in safe position.
Owing to a simple construction, the new device enables reliable operation, is inexpensive, easy to implement, and improves the existing safety systems.
