Monitor Hazardous Areas

Nov. 1, 2005
The OptoShield OS3100 Laser Light Safety Scanner is designed to adapt to both dynamic and irregular hazardous environments. OptoShield also features two detection zone sets that can be externally selected to monitor changing hazardous areas, without the need for external controls.

Diagnostic communications include a two-digit numeric display, four standard LED status indicators and patented Intrusion Indicators that identify where the safety zone is encroached without the need for difficult diagnostic searches and an external computer display. Intuitive configuration software facilitates easy navigation and configuration, says the vendor, allowing OptoShield to be configured to an unlimited number of guarding arrangements. Interface features include EDM/MPCE monitoring for control reliability so that OptoShield is safely integrated into the control panel of the hazardous machinery. OptoShield outputs handle 625mA to activate the larger widely used safety relays.
