Safety Controllers

PCSS-A embedded safety controllers simplify press brake design and provide the manufacturer with an optimum balance of functionality and performance with reduced build cost.

Compact and powerful

PCSS-A replaces conventional safety control and guarding components and with a small foot print that requires minimal cabinet space. All machine safety elements are connected directly to a single source for a clean and efficient cabinet layout.

Software simplified

CE Certified kernel software with pre-programmed safety function modules provides the manufacturer with flexibility and enables machine certification to be finalised quickly and efficiently.

Optical protection & optical imaging options

The manufacturer simply selects an optical protection option to suit machine protection and performance requirements. Functionality can be expanded to include optical imaging functions such as Bend Speed Management, Dynamic Angle Control, Active Angle Control plus much more.



  • Streamlined management of machine safety elements including valve control, valve monitoring, foot pedals, hand controls, emergency stop, side and rear gate switches, level switches, etc.
  • Fully embedded communication software interface with the CNC system. Compatible with Delem, Cybelec and ESA CNC systems. Custom CNC integration also supported.
  • Optical protection system management including control, muting and monitoring.
  • Dual optical protection support. Lazer Safe optical protection and third party light curtains can be installed on the same machine.
  • Connects to Y1/Y2 linear encoders for automatic process, speed and performance monitoring.
  • CE Certified hardware and software. 


Our technology maximises press brake productivity and performance, streamlines operation and enhances functionality and protection.
