Safety light curtain

SICK has the miniTwin safety light curtain, with transmitter and receiver elements combined in a miniature housing stick.

The stand-alone and host/guest versions are identical. In construction terms, the company says it allows monitoring with minimum safety distances and no blind zones – even when systems are cascaded in corner mounting.

The curtain is designed for tasks where a machine’s risk analysis demands the greatest possible level of protection, for example Performance Level pl “e” according to EN ISO 13849-1, or alternatively SIL3 in compliance with IEC 61508 or the sector standard EN 62061.

The curtain offers resolutions of 14mm, 24mm and 34mm – also in corner applications
