Light curtain PSENopt

Safety light curtain for finger, hand and body protection

Light curtains PSENopt

The light curtains PSENopt, also referred to as light barrier, 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 curtains 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 curtains 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 curtains, all advanced light curtains offer expanded functionalities such as muting, blanking and cascading. Slimline safety light curtains 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. You’ll find the required cable, connector and adapter accessories under Connection technology.

Safety light curtains for every application area

Safety 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 beam is broken it will immediately trigger a safe shutdown command.

The light curtain 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 curtains 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 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 in your plant:

  • Muting to distinguish between a person and material

Light curtains 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 curtain system.
