Can pneumatics blow away light curtains?

Can pneumatics blow away light curtains? Guarding systems using light curtains, interlocks and other high tech solutions would be great if they were not so expensive. Hoerbiger-Origa has advanced the state of the art of machine guarding and operator safety with the development of an obstruction detection system based on technology transfer from the rail industry. It can be used vertically, horizontally and at all angles in between; there is independent and variable speed control in all directions; and variable or lockable pressure control to give the right power for any given application. Extras that can be added include passive brakes for added security, dual direction obstruction detection, bi-parting solutions, short, medium and long stroke configurations, and multi layered backup detection.
