Safety Light Curtains
Safety Laser Scanners
Safety laser scanners are ideal for guarding large hazardous zones and an alternative to light curtains, which take up floor space and susceptible to wear and damage. Safety Laser Scanners are a cost-effective solutions for new machine installations or for retrofitting plants and machines. They are compact, user-friendly, and offer seamless integration. Omron’s Safety Laser Scanner has a low profile for installation in small spaces. It’s the industry’s first Ethernet-compliant Safety Laser Scanner and allows the user to check operating state and analyze the cause of an emergency stop via LAN.
Sensing safety mats are used to monitor an entire hazardous area. When sufficient pressure is applied to the mat by a worker stepping on it, a stop signal is initiated to stop the machine. They can be used for Machine Shutdown by stopping the equipment when the mat senses a person or as start-up prevention by continually sensing a person inside the cell. They offer flexibility, quick access and can be the most economic choice because they eliminate the need to set up and remove mechanical safety barriers during operation and maintenance. Other options for perimeter guarding include interlocked barrier guards and safety light curtains. Omron offers safety mats, area guarding, safety edges and bumpers that are built for tough environments.
