Safety Light Curtains

Safety Light Curtains

Safety light curtains use multi-beam light barriers to safeguard access points without the use of physical barriers. Light beams invisible to the naked eye are used to detect the presence of unwelcome items in the protected area triggering the machine to automatically shut down if necessary. Able to detect a finger at 14mm, a hand at 30mm and a body at 70mm – safety light curtains are highly effective at preventing accidents in the workplace.

Available with pre-programmed blanked areas suitable for use in applications which may include fixed items within the protected zone.

Prevent workplace accidents without using physical barriers

Safety Switches for Machine Guards

Safety Switches for Machine Guards

Safety guards must be kept closed until the hazards posed by machine movement ceases. Safety position switches with interlock functions or separate actuators ensure that safety gates, safety doors and other protective guards remain closed as long as a hazardous situation exists. For hinged guards and hoods a safety hinge switches allows adjustment or even resetting of set points after a guard has been damaged, avoiding expensive safety hinge replacement costs

Conforming to: EN 1088, EN ISO 12100-1, 12100-2 and the compulsory Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC
