Safety light curtains integrate test function

Safety light curtains integrate test function Siemens Automation and Drives offers a new range of safety light curtains for protecting personnel and machinery. The Type 2 light curtains from the Simatic Sensors product range perform monitoring functions at resolutions of 20, 30, 40 and 90mm. They cover protective field heights of 150 to 1800mm, and have integral test mechanisms as well as start-up/restart inhibit and contactor control. This removes the need for the previously commonplace external test monitoring and evaluation devices, as well as the often extensive wiring overhead and additional control cabinet space they require. Typical areas of application for the new Type 2 light curtains include printing machinery, woodworking machinery, paper processing, textile and packaging machinery, as well as pick-and-place machines. The new products comply with the safety standards IEC/IEN 954-1 (Category 2), IEC/IEN 61496-1 (Type 2) and EN 61508 (SIL 2), as well as risk assessment in accordance with pr EN ISO 13489. The self-diagnostics system with seven segment display simplifies start-up and diagnostics.
