Sick deTec2 Core safety light curtain

The deTec2 Core safety light curtain from Sick has been added to the deTec range. A type 2 device with PL c or SIL1, the deTec2 Core accommodates the changes to product standard IEC 61496-1 and provides safety for the machine and operator.

With a rugged, external design, the 4-pin connection technology enables rapid cabling or connection to bus systems, such as Flexi Loop from Sick. With IP65 and IP67 enclosure ratings and an operating temperature range of -30 to +55°C, the safety light curtain is also suitable for use in challenging environments.

The safety light curtains can be quickly and easily mounted and are supplied with a QuickFix bracket, which allows users to quickly and securely mount the light curtain on the machine frame. If users need to align the deTec2 Core, the optional FlexFix alignment brackets are available. LED indicators aid alignment. The intelligently designed cable outlet, which makes the usual male connector at the end of the profile housing redundant, provides a blind-zone free protective field for any resolution.

Depending on the requirements, both the deTec2 Core and the miniTwin2 safety light curtains are suitable for machines that pose a low risk of injury or are accessed infrequently by the user (typically PL c/SIL1 applications), such as those found in assembly workstations, loading devices with rotating tables or movable panels, test devices, riveting and glueing machines. Harsher conditions, which need a more rugged solution, paired with greater scanning ranges and protective field dimensions between 300 and 2100 mm, require deTec2.
