Safety light curtains set new benchmark standards

Safety light curtains set new benchmark standards The launch of the SICK deTec4 Core introduces the next-generation of safety light curtain, setting new performance standards in efficiency, installation and reliability for a wide range of applications including machine tool protection, FMCG goods handling and packaging, warehousing and logistics.

As well as meeting the latest EN standards, the deTec4 Core has no blind zones offering optimum positioning and protection against unsafe access whilst enabling ongoing efficient operation.

"We believe the deTec4 sets a new best-in-class benchmark for single-sided access protection," says Dr Martin Kidman, SICK (UK) safety specialist. "It is progress that has been recognised with an International Forum (iF) Product Design Award. The DeTec4 is very easy to install and commission with an automatic range measurement of up to 10 metres. Once set up it operates economically and reliably."

Through the space saving, robust design of the SICK deTec4, safety distances can be minimised to achieve best-possible machine integration as well as higher operator productivity.

The SICK deTec4 Core 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 up to 10m. In addition, it complies with performance level "e" (EN ISO 13849), Type 4 (IEC61496) and SIL 3 (IEC61508). As the deTec4 Core sensor works only in protective mode, configuration and range adjustment is automatic requiring no additional set-up; diagnostic codes are simple and additional functions can be set up via safety relays, or the SICK Flexi Classic or Flexi Soft safety controllers.

A combination of the innovative mounting bracket configuration, semi-circular contours and alignment LEDs greatly simplify the alignment process meaning the SICK deTec4 Core can be installed quickly and easily in seconds.

The SICK deTec4 Core benefits from an IP67 enclosure and an operating temperature range from -30°C to +55°C, guaranteeing operation in harsh conditions and a variety of demanding industrial environments.
