Light curtain devices PSENopt

Light curtain for finger, hand and body protection

Light curtain devices PSENopt

Light curtain devices PSENopt, also called light grids, can be used in all areas of industry where a barrier-free safety concept is to be implemented. Thanks to their compact dimensions and ease of installation, the light curtains enable an ergonomic work environment.

Light curtain devices for any application area

Light curtains protect both workers and capital goods – safely, efficiently and economically. An invisible protected field of infrared beams protects the danger zones. If a light curtain is broken it will immediately trigger a safe shutdown command.

The light curtain device PSENopt achieves protection type IP6K9K in protective housings and is therefore suitable for humid environments where there are high demands on hygiene. The mirrors enable the light curtain beams to be easily deflected, securing a larger protected field without using additional light curtains. Thanks to post protectors, our light curtain devices are protected against shock, collision or vibration even in rugged industrial environments.


Muting, blanking and cascading with PSENopt Advanced

Discover the multifunctionality of our light curtains PSENopt Advanced! Muting, blanking and/or cascading are possible with just one light curtain. These functions open up a wide range of possibilities for optimum integration of the light curtains PSENopt:

  • Muting to distinguish between a person and material

The light curtains with muting function are suitable for transporting material into and out of a hazardous area, when loading pallets for example. Muting is the safe, automatic and temporary suspension of a protective device.

  • Blanking for a flexible, uninterrupted production process

The light curtain uses the blanking function to enable simple machine designs. Your production process can be flexible and adaptable to different production materials, or it can quickly be converted, as required!

  • Cascading function for effective protection against encroachment into and behind the protected area

Adjacent protected fields can easily be safeguarded. This type of cascading enables the front, top and back of a machine to be safeguarded using just a single light curtain system.
