safety light curtain is an electro-sensitive device that uses one or more light beams, which is emitted by a transmitter and received by a receiver to create an invisible controlled area.
The simplest function of the CYNDAR light curtain is that when the beam is blocked and the output is turned off, it will send a signal to stop the relevant dangerous movement. If there is no accident and the area is safe, you can perform a reset. This safe operation of stop/start may disrupt factory processes and productivity.
CYNDAR safety light curtain is an electro-sensitive device that uses one or more light beams, which is emitted by a transmitter and received by a receiver to create an invisible controlled area.
The basic characteristics are:
Safety type-defines the self-monitoring and safety principles contained in the equipment; it must be selected according to the risk level of the machine.
Protection height-this is the height controlled by the light curtain. If placed horizontally, the value shows the depth of the protection zone.
Range-This is the maximum working distance that may exist between the transmitter and receiver. When using a deflecting mirror, you need to consider the attenuation coefficient introduced by each mirror, which is about 15%.
Response time-This is the time required for the light curtain to transmit an alarm signal from the moment the protected area is interrupted.
Resolution-The resolution of the light curtain is the minimum size of the object placed in the controlled area, which will obscure the controlled area and therefore stop the dangerous movement of the machine.
