Light Curtains

What are Light Curtains?

Known as safety light barriers, light curtains are optoelectronic devices that are typically used to detect the presence of people or objects in the close proximity of moving machinery such as press tools. 

How do Light Curtains work?

Safety light curtains are made up of a Transmitter head and Receiver head that hold the electronics and optics. Safety light curtains generate a field of infra-red light between the two heads which acts as the detection zone. Any movement detected within the detection zone will trigger a response, which could be disconnecting power, raising a barrier, sounding alarms or stopping a machine. Fast acting, safety light curtains activate in a fraction of a second, considerably faster than other barrier types that rely on mechanical interaction.

How to choose a Light Curtain

Maximum scanning distance and beam resolution are two important points you should consider when choosing the correct light curtain for your installation. Scanning distances can vary from a matter of cm’s to several meters, ultimately your decision will depend on the scale of the area to be protected. The beam resolution defines detection ability, with some models with small resolutions are able to detect small body parts such as a finger or hand, larger beam resolutions are ideal for larger body parts or full body detection.
