The second generation of safety light curtains, PSENopt II, provide safe access to the production process and provide finger, hand and body protection, depending on the requirement. The first Type 3 safety light curtains are specifically designed for applications up to PL d of EN/IEC 61496-1/-2. Type 4 light curtains are also available for applications up to PL e of EN/IEC 61496-1/-2.
As the units are so robust, PSENopt II sensors provide protection against shock, collision and vibration and so are suitable for use in rugged industrial environments. The operator can evaluate the main causes and system defects responsible for the machine stop by means of the LEDs. Downtimes are reduced as a result.
The safety light curtains are available in lengths from 150 mm to 1800 mm. In combination with the safe small controllers PNOZmulti 2, the result is a safe, complete, one-stop solution. In the graphics software tool PNOZmulti Configurator you can select the light curtain block and configure your own individual safety light curtain application with just a few clicks.
