Sick releases all-in-one muting sets for its deTem4 active/passive light curtains
Sick has released ‘all-in-one’, plug-and-play muting systems for its deTem4 Active/Passive range of safety light curtains, providing a fast-track to improved productivity for safe entry/exit applications.
The compact deTem4 LT Muting Active/Passive multiple light beam safety systems are supplied as complete muting sets designed for rapid mounting, connection and commissioning. Customers can choose between a ‘T’-shaped system for bidirectional muting, or a left- or right-handed ‘L’-shaped system for exit-only muting. Each set has pre-mounted and pre-aligned Sick GL6 retro-reflective muting sensors for ‘plug and play’ integration.
The deTem4 A/P safety light beam systems are Type 4 devices (EN 61496), enabling compliance in applications with requirements up to PLe (EN ISO 13849) and SIL3 (EN 62061). Commissioning time is minimised thanks to automatic parameter setup, with integrated status LEDs and alignment aids. Easy adjustment of the muting arms is also possible if required.
“With the deTem4 LT Muting A/P systems, Sick is enabling quick and easy implementation of muting,” states Dr Martin Kidman, product manager for safety solutions at Sick UK. “One part number covers the complete kit of parts, which is partly pre-assembled prior to delivery. Standard M12 connectors, simple brackets with alignment aid and autoconfiguration ensure that mechanical and electrical connections are simple and cut commissioning time dramatically. The simplicity of this system ensures that muting works as it should, allowing movement of, say, palletised goods but preventing personnel from accessing hazardous areas.”
Sick says deTem4 LT Muting A/P systems are ideal for many safety applications in material handling or logistics applications where access protection is required with muting for automated flow of material to safely protect operators from hazardous areas.
