Balluff's Opto-electronic protective devices
Flexible production places high demands on safety when man and machine work so closely together.
This interplay must not ever compromise the safety of employees. Opto-electronic protective devices such as light curtains from Balluff provide safe solutions that also enable great flexibility. Another benefit to you: by using light curtains that consist of multiple parallel light beams, you
save space since they can replace cumbersome guard fence constructions or assemblies of multiple through-beam sensors.
The most important benefits:
- Finger, hand and body detection for convenient and fast interaction between man and machine
- Defined protected area with infrared protection field – suitable for safety applications up to PLe SIL3
- Safe machine stoppage in safety-critical applications
- Better space utilization by eliminating the need for protective fence structures
- High level of manipulation protection
