Monday, 13 March, 2017 | Supplied by: Pilz Australia Industrial Automation LP

Pilz PSENopt II safety light curtains are optoelectronic sensing safety devices that detect the presence of an object in the light curtain’s sensing field.

They are commonly used in machine guarding applications to detect the presence of a person’s finger, hand, limb or whole body.

If the production process requires active intervention by personnel, the light curtains can provide an optimum and cost-effective system for plant and machinery safety requirements. Depending on the application, the product satisfies all the requirements of EN/IEC 61496-1 for finger, hand or body protection.

The product comes in a standard Type 4 and a Type 3 light curtain. The Type 3 light curtain works in with the revised version of IEC 61496-1.

The light curtains are suitable for manual workplaces, such as those with materials handling and/or robotic applications. With their high shock resistance of 50 g, they are suitable for rugged industrial environments. The light curtains not only offer increased flexibility with a focus on their application area, but also increase machine availability.

The product offers hand protection and finger protection up to Category 4, PL e & SIL 3. The light curtains work with continuous single beams that completely eliminate so-called ‘dead zones’. The light barriers are able to be positioned closer to the application and thanks to the absence of dead zones, users can save valuable space.

The light curtains can be applied flexibly and installed easily with the assembly aids. Due to their 5-pin connection they can be directly connected to the decentralised periphery PDP67. This effectively reduces the commissioning effort. In combination with control technology, light curtains are a safe, economical and complete option for many industries and applications.

The product enables muting, blanking and/or cascading using just one light curtain. These functions open up a wide range of possibilities for the integration of light curtains into the workspace. Muting is used to distinguish between a person and material, and transport material into and out of a danger zone. Muting is a safe, automatic and a temporary suspension of a protection device.
