Protection for machine operators

July 27th, 2012, Published in Articles: Vector

Reer’s Admiral optoelectronic safety barrier is designed to protect users exposed to risks arising from the use of dangerous machines. Admiral, with its two safe static outputs, can work without external control units with all the safety functions integrated inside the emitter and the receiver complying perfectly with the requirements of EN 61496-1 and IEC 61496-1-2. Four models are available: resolution 14 and 20 mm for finger detection; resolution 30 and 40 mm for hand detection; resolution 50 and 90 mm for presence detection in a hazardous area; and resolution 90 mm with two, three, and four beams for access control. Admiral has a selectable maximum scanning distance of 6 m, a seven-segment display for signaling and functional diagnosis, correct alignment and beam status indicating LEDs and safety static outputs protected from short circuits and overloads. It is ideal for protecting workers using presses, punches, cutters and shears, robotised areas, assembly lines and palletising systems.
