Safety plane just for TCP


Our Cobot works with a hot tool and I´m trying to get the process safer. I want to create a plane that can´t be passed by the tool. That sounds like the perfect use for a safetyplane. The problem is, the robot stops too when the toolflange passes the safetyplane and that reduces the working space more than needed. Is it possible to edit the safetyplane on a way that just limits the TCP working space and nothing else?

You can read a brief description in the User Manual Section on Tool Position, 21.15.

Thanks for your reply. I tryed to use this for my problem, but the robot still stops as soon as the toolflange passes the saftyplane.
