Banner Engineering has introduced the compact Type-4 Safety Light Curtain.

The EZ-screen LP (low profile) provides continuous protection for the length of the screen, with no dead zones, according to Banner.

The screen’s two-piece design (emitter and receiver) with integrated controls eliminates the need for a separate controller.

The curtain is designed for easy mounting and reliable operation on machinery used in a range of industries, including automotive, electronics and semiconductor, materials handling and metalworking.

Screens are available in safety yellow, brushed anodized aluminium and a nickel-plated electrostatic discharge (ESD)-safe housing for semiconductor applications.

Units are available with 14mm resolution for finger detection or 25mm resolution for hand detection.

Protection heights range from 270 to 1,810mm, with detection range up to 7m and response times eight to 43min.

The 28 x 26mm housing profile fits on small machines with minimal protrusion.

Brackets for end or side mounting are included, with rotating fasteners for fine alignment.

Additional mounting hardware to accommodate most machine configurations is available.

Setup is without a PC, using DIP switches and a seven-segment LED display and a bar-graph indicator showing diagnostic information.

Contiguous beams can be blanked for situations where part of the machine would block the curtain.

EZ-screen LP is certified to Type 4, Category 4 PLe and SIL 3.

It also exceeds OSHA/ANSI control reliability requirements.
