Rugged light curtains offer high performance

Rugged light curtains offer high performance

A tough addition to Sick’s flagship safety light curtain family, the deTec4 Prime is an extra-rugged, high-performance light curtain that is easy to install and use. It is also suitable for harsh environments and exceptionally wide machines.  

With the Sick deTec4 Prime, it is easier than ever to achieve hazardous and access point safety protection up to PLe/SIL3. The deTec4 Prime is expected to find applications in automated consumer goods handling and packaging, for example on large pieces of equipment such as multi-robot carton assembly and multi-station white goods assembly lines.

With integrated laser alignment for simple installation, the Sick deTec4 Prime provides full end-to-end protection with no blind zones and a wide scanning range up to 21m. It complements the highly successful deTec4 Core safety light curtain which has set new protection performance standards since its launch in 2013. 

With integral dip switches for simple in-situ configuration, the deTec4 Prime is quick and easy to commission without the need for a computer. Cascading up to three deTec4 Prime safety light curtains minimises wiring complexity and reduces the number of safety inputs in the control cabinet. The coded light beam option prevents optical interference between devices in side-by-side applications.

 “With the deTec4 Prime, Sick has produced yet another functional safety device optimised for maximum uptime through ease of connectivity and quick commissioning whilst meeting the most stringent international safety standards,” says Dr. Martin Kidman, Sick UK safety specialist. 

“Launching the deTec4 Prime enhances our portfolio of next generation light curtains, ready for use in the Industry 4.0 Smart Factory. Through the space saving, robust design of the SICK deTec4 Prime, machine integration is optimised in order to achieve higher operator productivity.”

The deTec4 Prime offers protective field heights in increments from 300mm to 2100mm and a choice of finger (14mm) or hand (30mm) resolution providing protection against operator intervention in accordance with EN ISO 13855 in applications covering up to 21 metres.
