Question & Answer
What is the difference between Soft Stop and Hard Stop?

A soft stop will automatically slow and or stop the vehicle to avoid a collision and will resume operations when clear. An example is the safety scanner, when a obstacle blocks the path, the vehicle will slow down and come to a complete stop.

A hard stop is when select safety features are triggered, such as an e-stop, causing the vehicle to stop immediately. This may require manually re-enabling the vehicle before resuming operations.

Safety Scanners vs Safety Bummpers?

Safety scanners are preventive safety feature that slows and stops the vehicle from hitting a worker or other obstacles. When used in a AGV application, OSHA requires safety scanners for collision avoidance.

Safety bumper is a reactive safety feature that stops the vehicle when pressure from hitting someone or something. Safety scanners are preferred, stopping a large amount of weight might take a few inches to fully stop and could jerk the weight forward.
