Light barriers PSENopt

Safety light barrier for finger, hand and body protection

Light barriers PSENopt

The light barriers PSENopt, also referred to as light curtain, 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 safety light barriers enable an ergonomic work environment. This is the case, for example, when operator intervention is required as part of each cycle, such as insertion work, or the infeed and outfeed of material.

You can choose between Type 2/Type 4 light barriers in accordance with EN/IEC 61496-1/-2 and versions for finger, hand and body protection, in lengths from 15 cm to 180 cm. In addition to the Basic light barriers, all advanced light barriers offer expanded functionalities such as muting, blanking and cascading. Slimline safety light barriers PSENopt slim can be used for space-critical applications.

Accessories range from deviating mirrors, protective columns for shock, collision and vibration protection, protective IP6K9K housing through to test rods.

High productivity with the light barriers PSENopt

  • Protected fields and detection capability can be set up to be process-oriented
  • Higher productivity due to reduced access times
  • Rapid and simple assembly, installation and commissioning
  • User-friendly diagnostics thanks to built-in LEDs to reduce down times
  • Comprehensive portfolio including accessories – ideal in combination with safe control technology from Pilz

For every discipline – additional benefits of the light barriers PSENopt Advanced

Safety light barriers PSENopt advanced
  • Simple configuration and commissioning with the PSENopt Configurator
  • Three functionalities in one light barriers: muting, blanking and cascading
  • Increased safety as there are no dead zones
  • Flexible installation thanks to coding

Small safety light barriers, high level of safety – additional benefits of the PSENopt slim

  • Narrow design saves space and costs
  • Increased safety as there are no dead zones
  • Effective protection against encroachment into and behind the protected area thanks to the cascading function

Light barriers PSENopt features

Features of light barriers PSENopt and PSENopt Advanced
  • Compliant and approved in accordance with EN/IEC 61508 and EN/IEC 61496-1/-2
  • Safety for finger, hand, body and access protection
  • Used in applications up to PL c (Type 2), PL e (Type 4)
  • Integral functions: Feedback loop monitoring, reset, acknowledgement, diagnostics (PSENopt), muting and blanking (PSENopt Advanced) plus cascading (PSENopt Advanced, PSENopt slim))
  • Absence of dead zones (PSENopt Advanced, PSENopt slim)

Safety light barriers for every application area

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

The light barriers 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 barrier. Thanks to protective columns, our safety light barriers are protected against shock, collision or vibration even in rugged industrial environments.


Muting, blanking and cascading with PSENopt Advanced

Why not see for yourself the multifunctionality of our light barriers PSENopt Advanced! Muting, blanking and/or cascading are possible with just one light barrier. These functions open up a wide range of possibilities for optimum integration of the light barriers PSENopt in your plant:

  • Muting to distinguish between a person and material

Light barriers with muting function are suitable for transporting material into or out of a danger zone, 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 barrier 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 field

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 barrier system.

Safety light barriers for every application area

Light barrier PSENopt slim for space-critical applications

Light barriers PSENopt slim on punching machine

Thanks to their slimline design, light barriers PSENopt slim are suitable for space-critical applications as well as on doors and gates. Type 2 and Type 4 light barriers provide finger and hand protection, depending on requirements. Thanks to the cascading function with no dead zones, they also provide effective protection against encroachment into and behind the protected area. Use the PSENopt slim in combination with the configurable safety system PNOZmulti or PNOZsigma, for example, and you will have a safe, economical and complete solution for your application.
