Safety light curtain

Friday, 07 August, 2009 | Supplied by: Rockwell Automation Australia


The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield Micro 400 is a Type 4 presence-sensing safety light curtain that is available in standard or cascadeable configurations, suitable for a variety of space-constrained industrial applications with hazardous machinery.

The device features expanded functionality via the MSR42 multi-function controller with hardwired or software-configurable operating modes and solid-state safety outputs. If safety relay outputs are required, up to three safety-relay expansion modules may be connected to the controller.

Accepting additional inputs such as E-stops or other machine safety devices, the controller also features diagnostic capability by facilitating an optical diagnostic and configuration interface tool.

The cascadeable model enables multiple light curtain segments to be connected together on a single cable and configured to a single controller, negating the need to run a cable from each light curtain segment.

The light curtain is available with 14 and 30 mm resolution in both the regular and cascadeable configurations, for finger or hand detection respectively; both resolutions available in heights of 150-1200 mm.
