Rockwell Automation announces Allen-Bradley GuardShield 450L safety light curtain system

August 23, 2018 — The Allen-Bradley GuardShield 450L safety light curtain system from Rockwell Automation are designed to enhance safety while improving productivity through transceiver technology.

The Integrated Laser Alignment System (ILAS) of the GuardShield 450L-E provides multiple visible laser points that optimize setup with a touch of the ILAS symbol on the front window of the stick. Plus, the design and full-length protective field integrate a GuardShield 450L-E system in hand and finger protection applications from 150 mm (5.9 inches) up to 1950 mm (76.7 inches) in increments of 150 mm (0.5 foot).

After start-up, users can leverage features and functionality, including cascading, built-in muting and blanking.

The muting and blanking functions of the GuardShield 450L-E light curtain are set up through DIP switches located on the dedicated plug-in modules. Common muting set ups like 4-sensor or 2-sensor with L- and T-configuration and override function can be selected as well as reduced resolution or teach in fixed blanking. A cascading plug-in can also be installed for series connection of additional GuardShield 450L Safety Light Curtain systems, enabling multi-sided machine guarding.
