New safety light curtain provides flexible safety options

The new features for the EZ-SCREEN non-contact, point-of-operation machine guarding safety light screen system make it one of the most feature-rich and flexible systems available on the market. Key additions include fixed blanking to accommodate materials and tooling inflow with no reduction of operator safety, a cascading option for connection up to four EZ-SCREEN pairs and multiple AC interfaces.

Fixed blanking allows for stationary objects such as tooling or materials inflow to be ignored when positioned in a defined set of beams. If the objects are removed, the system goes into a lockout mode to ensure an unsafe gap in the sensing field is not created. The cascading option allows up to four systems of varying sizes, lengths and resolutions to be wired together to form a unified control stop element with a single cable interface.

The Banner EZ-SCREEN system family is intended for point-of-operation machine guarding applications and other safeguarding applications, including area guarding when mounted horizontally and long-range perimeter guarding utilizing corner mirrors. EZ-SCREEN pairs are available in 14mm and 30mm resolution and twelve lengths from 150mm to 1800mm. EZ-SCREEN Grid and Point systems are also available offering single beam point, 2-, 3- or 4-beam grid protection. The EZ-SCREEN safety light screen system is a redundant microprocessor-controlled, self-checking design of Type 4 which exceeds control reliability requirements and is certified per CE (Category 4).
