Ultraslim light curtains - Pepperl+Fuchs

The SLCS and SLCT Series safety light curtains come in IEC 61496-compliant Type 4 or Type 2 versions. The high-resolution and ultraslim safety light curtains reduce the safe mounting distance with respect to the point-of-operation hazard, allowing them to be installed with a “built-in” look. The 20 × 30 mm curtains have an optional quick-release mounting bracket for fast, flexible mounting. The brackets can be attached to any of the curtain’s three sides. Top-to-top mounting with no dead zone is also an option.
The curtains use standard M12 micro connector cordsets and feature completely integrated control electronics and solid-state OSSDs for a fully self-contained two-box system with simplified wiring and setup — no separate control module or synchronization cable connection are required between the transmitter and receiver. A maximum 8-m sensing range is available with beam spacings for finger (14 mm), hand (30 mm) and body-detection (60 and 90 mm) configurations. The curtains provide operation in temperatures from –22 to 140°F.
