Light Curtains, Grids Provide Protection

A line of low-profile light curtains and light grids can be mounted vertically or horizontally along the floor to detect foot traffic as well as to protect the perimeter of a machine, robot or other equipment.

{mosimage} Light curtain pairs are available in heights from 160mm to 1510mm in intervals of 150mm. Resolution options are 30, 40, 50 and 90mm. Both the light curtains and grids include an emitter and receiver pair that create a multi-beam barrier of infrared light. Each pair is available in Type 2/SIL 2 or Type 4/SIL 3 safety rating according to IEC 61496. Housing profiles measure 28x30mm for less intrusive installation. Angle brackets are supplied for quick mounting, and the units do not require software for installation. Light grids are available in pairs in 2-, 3- and 4-beam versions. Starting list price for a light curtain pair is $590 and $695 for a light grid pair.
