Industrial companies can help protect personnel and equipment with new presence-sensing safety light curtains from Rockwell Automation. The Allen-Bradley 450L GuardShield safety light curtains are designed to improve productivity and increase efficiency while helping provide personnel safety. This light curtain is the first product of its kind to provide CIP Safety over EtherNet/IP.

CIP Safety over EtherNet/IP enables smart safety within a Connected Enterprise and provides rich data from the plant floor. The 450L GuardShield light curtains support linear, star and DLR networks and are ideally suited for applications where safe, easy and frequent access to the machine is required.

The 450L safety light curtains are unlike traditional safety light curtains, which are based on separate transmitter and receiver units. Patented technology allows each transceiver to be used as a transmitter or receiver via an innovative plug-in module. The 450L-E option provides advanced functionality, including integrated laser alignment, cascading, blanking and integrated muting.

The 450L safety light curtains are TÜV certified PLe, Type 4 IEC 61496-1/-2, SIL CL3 per EN ISO 13849-1 and IEC 62061
