Safety light curtains integrate fieldbus connectivity
Leuze Mayser has two new safety light curtains: the IP68 rated version of Compactplus that also offers integrated bus connectivity without the need for additional coupling devices; and the highly rugged Solid-4 with its torsionally stiff housing plus high immunity from EMC disturbance for exceptional performance.
Compactplus meets the requirements of SIL 3 in accordance with IEC 61508 and is available with a range of functionalities that include blanking, muting and cycle control. Couple these features with the added protection of IP68 classification, then Compactplus becomes one of the most versatile safety light curtains available that is now fully equipped for applications in food and other manufacturing processes where the ability to undergo wash-down is a standard requirement.
The Solid-4 safety light curtain has been engineered for arduous environments. Its trouble-free performance is complemented by a choice of four standard resolutions - 14, 20, 30, 40 and 90mm - making it an extremely flexible safety light curtain, for hazardous point protection or area protection across many diverse applications. In addition, where multiple light curtain guarding requirements are needed in close proximity the Solid-4 incorporates two selectable light-beam channels. This eliminates potential optical cross-talking of neighbouring devices ensuring completely reliable safety protection.
