Compact safety light curtains for tight spaces
December 2018, IS & Ex
The new SLC4 is Banner’s most compact safety light curtain to date. It has a low-profile design and a sensing area that extends the entire length of its 160 mm housing. This Type 4 safety light curtain system is available in models for finger detection or hand detection.
The SLC4 is the latest addition to Banner’s line of compact, low-profile safety light curtains, which includes the full feature LP Series and the cost-effective LP Basic Series. These safety light curtains are now avail- able in lengths of 160 mm up to 1250 mm, including new 410 mm and 690 mm models of the LP Basic safety light curtain.
Key benefits and applications of the SLC4
Compact design: the low-profile and short 160 mm length of the SLC4 enables an unobtrusive installation in space-constrained areas and on compact machines.
End-to-end sensing: the sensing area extends across the full length of the device, eliminating blind zones and maximising sensing capabilities in a minimally sized package.
Affordable price point: with the lowest price per millimetre of any Type 4 safety light curtain from Banner Engineering, this is an extremely cost-effective solution for simple machine safeguarding applications requiring only redundant, self-checking safety outputs.
Ease-of-use: the new light curtains can be configured quickly and easily with no PC software, DIP switches, or other devices required. Bicolour zone and status indicators reduce downtime by simplifying system alignment and troubleshooting.
Applications include safeguarding of smaller points of operation and access on compact production machines and similar equipment used in the electronics, packaging, and other industries.
