Sentinel Plus XL
The robust guarding solution for long press brakes

Sentinel Plus XL is an optional upgrade for the Sentinel Plus system. The XL option uses a long range optical transmitter and camera receiver set to extend the optical range of the system from 8 meters (26 feet) to 15 meters (50 feet). Sentinel Plus XL is optimised for larger press brake applications with greater resistance to machine vibration and environmental effects.
