The IP67 housing in which the C4000 Micro is integrated is a protective housing with a PMMA acrylic pipe and V4A stainless steel end caps. It is compactly constructed so that no inaccessible areas of dirt can form.
Up to six doors on mechanical separating protective equipment can be centrally monitored with the non-contact RE 4000 safety system. The system, consisting of an evaluation unit with sensors and actuators, is certified as category 4 according to EN 954-1. Thus, the system can be used in potentially highly hazardous machines.
The IN 300 and IN 3000 series are inductive systems whose optional cubic or cylindrical sensors detect the presence of metal. Integration of the manual restart and external device monitoring functions in the evaluation modules of the IN series bring about considerable savings in safety relays, as three (IN 300) or six (IN 3000) sensors can be connected to each module.
The category 4 C4000 micro safety curtain is now available in an IP67 housing. Thus non-contact area safeguarding requiring the highest possible safety category complying with IEC 61496 can also be realised wherever process conditions may involve temperature fluctuations, or cleaning with steam or aggressive detergents.
With the RLS 100, Sick has introduced a safety laser scanner complying with IEC/EN61496, Type 3.
The SMS Safety Muting System is a rapidly installable complete system solution for differentiating between persons and material insertion at dangerous machines.
