Euchner unveils new light grids and curtains
Euchner is expanding their industrial safety engineering product range by the addition of non-contact safety guards. Light grids and light curtains from the series LCA can be used for access control and securing danger areas and are available in various resolutions from 14 to 50mm.
Light grids are ideally suited for access control, while light curtains are perfect for protecting fingers, hands, arms and body detection both are available. Depending on the requirements for the location to be secured we offer them rated to type 2 or type 4 meaning a Performance Level PLc/SIL 1 or Performance Level PLe/SIL 3 can be met respectively.
Simple setup and parametrisation can be performed directly on the device without additional programming on a PC, and integrated LED indicator provides a quick overview of the device status. A narrow design and robust housing means they are suitable for industrial use and permit simple installation even in confined spaces.
Various muting functions can be implemented in combination with the freely programmable small safe control system MSC. With the aid of additional sensors, the MSC monitors the proper bypassing procedure for an object and, for example, can differentiate between a person or object moving through the protective field.
