Product picture, PSENscan

The safety laser scanner PSENscan offers two-dimensional area monitoring with an opening angle of 275 degrees and a protected field range of up to 5.5 metres. Thanks to the free configuration of warning fields and protected fields, plus the ability to adapt to structural conditions, the safety laser scanners are ideal for integrating into the widest range of applications. The safety laser scanner PSENscan is especially suitable for stationary and mobile area guarding as well as access monitoring.

Use the PSENscan Configurator for fast, easy configuration of all the parameters required to operate your safety laser scanner PSENscan! When combined with configurable small controllers PNOZmulti or the controllers PSSuniversal, you have a complete, economical, one-stop solution.

Optimum protection for danger zones – with safety laser scanners

Stationary safeguarding of danger zones

Stationary safeguarding of danger zones

Safety laser scanners PSENscan detect when a person approaches a hazardous movement. If a warning field is accessed, there is controlled braking of the hazardous movement; if the protected field is accessed, the movement is stopped.

Rear access protection

Rear access protection

Where it is difficult to see into danger zones, safety laser scanners PSENscan detect a person's current location. So they effectively prevent the hazardous movement from re-starting.

Access guarding

Access guarding

The safety laser scanners PSENscan provide optimum protection against people entering at access points to danger zones. Thanks to integrated muting inputs, they are also suitable for applications in which material is transported in and out simultaneously.

Flexible solution for your application

Safety laser scanners PSENscan guarantee productive area monitoring for your application – whether individually, in series connection or when devices are exchanged.
Possible to monitor up to 3 safety zones.

Industry use of the safety laser scanner

Monitoring of up to 3 safety zones

Simultaneous monitoring of up to 3 safety zones

With PSENscan you can monitor up to three safety zones simultaneously and independently. Only the plant section that is accessed by a person is stopped. As a result, safety distances on your plant can be optimised. This ensures increased productivity and improved ergonomics for your plant – and optimum safety.

Coding ensures an

Coding ensures an "interference-free environment"

Two safety laser scanners not connected in series can be operated flexibly at close proximity to each other, thanks to coding. This increases the availability of the plant and machinery and shortens the production time.

High availability thanks to fast replacement

High availability thanks to fast replacement

The safety laser scanners PSENscan have an exchangeable memory module. Should a device become damaged and another laser scanner is used (same model), the configuration is simply transferred to your new device.
