Safety light curtains and light grids

November 29th, 2013, Published in Articles: Vector

The safety light curtains and light grids from Ifm Electronic have been developed in accordance with current standards and certified by TÜV Süd. They meet the requirements type 2/SIL2 or type 4/SIL3, helping personnel to stay on the safe side, no matter what areas are to be protected. Versatile versions in a slim design are available for applications from finger protection to body protection. Ranges up to 12 or 20 m in resolutions (detection capacity) of 14, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 90 mm are available. The light grids are available in 2, 3 or 4-beam versions. The protected area height is selectable from 160 mm to 1510 mm in distances of 150 mm. They all have very small housing dimensions of only 28 x 30 mm and can be installed in an L shape without dead band.
