ICS-7-OEM Interlock Controller

An OEM version of ICS Interlock®

Lasermet’s established and proven ICS Interlock® control system is available as an OEM version which is specifically designed for integrators to use as part of the laser control system.

  • Dual-channel safety
  • Ready to use with PLC controllers
  • Fail-safe reliability
  • Compatible with expansion modules


Direct Integration with Laser System PLCs

The ICS-7-OEM is the dual channel laser safety interlock control system that integrates with PLC Controllers to form a complete laser control system.

The required functionality of the ICS-7-OEM is the same as the conventional ICS-9 Controller but here the wiring is carried out on the front of the panel.

Integrated with control systems including the laser and the robot, the ICS-7-OEM enables the laser to be armed only once all of the safety interlocks are proven to be in their safe mode of operation.

The ICS-7-OEM provides control of an interlock system designed to protect personnel from accidental exposure to hazardous lasers. It can monitor several doors, windows, curtains etc. fitted with safety interlock switches and disable the laser if any are open. The versatile ICS-7- OEM system can be connected to any number of door switches and can indicate the status of up to six switches or groups of switches.

The ICS-7-OEM has a fully dual channel cross-checked architecture and when correctly wired can realise a system compliant with EN ISO 13849-1 up to performance level ‘e’.

Seven safety Interlock® outputs each rated at 4A resistive, 50VDC, are provided to enable the laser, operate door locks, provide signals to a PLC etc.


The ICS-7-OEM attaches to a 35mm ‘top-hat’ style DIN rail inside a control cabinet.

It should be mounted in a convenient position for wiring while – at the same time – it should be inaccessible by operators. It has indicator lights on its top surface which would normally only need to be observed by installation and maintenance personnel.

During installation, wired connections will need to be made from the ICS-7-OEM to all the interlocked doors, warning signs, laser interlocks, shutters, PLC and other equipment as required by the system.
