Master/slave functionality provides improved connectivity, and dual zone protection allows one scanner to replace two light curtains, scanning two adjacent zones simultaneously and independently, performing the work of two scanners for the cost of one. A common application is providing dual light curtain protection for two robots mounted side by side. The scanner provides a standard 270-degree arc of protection at a distance up to 20 meters, and this protection area can be configured into any pattern using either free programming software with drop-and-drag functionality provided with the scanner, or with the scanner’s teach mode. The teach mode scans obstructions in its standard 270-degree arc of protection to produce a pattern. Up to 32 patterns can be stored in the scanner, and different patterns can be selected and applied on the fly by sending commands to the scanner through the Ethernet port, or by configuring the encoder input to react to changes in speed. The scanner is certified for use in safety applications including AGVs, forklifts, robots and other items of moving equipment found in industrial facilities, and certified for use in Safety Category 3, Performance Level d (PLd), Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL2) applications.
