Safety managers know that the proper use of optoelectronic sensors protect their staff and capital goods - safely, efficiently and economically. These devices provide optimum protection for plant and machinery when there is active intervention into the production process. Optoelectronic sensors range from light barriers/curtains to area scanners to vision systems and more.
Optoelectronic sensors can provide finger, hand or body protection in accordance with specific standards, depending on the requirement.
In this webinar, you’ll learn how optoelectronic technology helps protect specific danger zones at your workplace. If a light beam is broken, for instance, the sensor will immediately trigger a safe shutdown command. Muting, blanking and/or cascading open up a wide range of possibilities for optimum incorporation of the light barrier into your plant. Learn more about why this safety technology is appropriate for a wide range of industries and applications.
Attendees will learn:
- Types of optoelectronic sensors
- Standards used for presence sensing devices
- Safe distance formulas for different presence sensing devices
- Calculation techniques of stop time
- Applications for optoelectronic sensors
