Pepperl + Fuchs: Ultra-slim safety light curtains

SLCS and SLCT series safety light curtains from Pepperl+Fuchs are available in IEC 61496-compliant Type 4 or Type 2 versions.
FILED IN:  Controls  > Strategy
These high-resolution, ultra-slim curtains reduce the safe mounting distance to the point-of-operation hazard enabling them to be installed with a “built-in” look and feel. The small footprint (20 mm wide x 30 mm deep) and optional quick-release mounting bracket facilitates fast, flexible mounting. SLCS Type 4 and SLCT Type 2 series safety light curtains use standard M12 micro connector cordsets, and feature completely integrated control electronics and solid state OSSDs.. No separate control module is necessary, nor is a synchronization cable connection required between the transmitter and receiver. Features a maximum sensing range of 8 m (26 ft.), beam spacings for finger (14 mm), hand (30 mm) and body detection (60 and 90 mm) configurations, and reliable operation in temperatures ranging from -22° F to +140°F (-30° C to +60° C).
