Industrial automation manufacturer Banner Engineering introduced the S4B, a heavy-duty safety light curtain that is quick and easy to install.
A Type 4 light curtain, the S4B delivers durable, dependable sensing for a range of applications and is easy to install, operate, and troubleshoot. Its 30 mm resolution makes it optimal for hand detection. With end-to-end sensing in lengths from 300 mm to 1800 mm, and boasting a 12-meter range, the S4B can tackle a wide range of safety applications while meeting the highest safety standards.
Installation is simple using the adjustable bracket. The light curtains click into place, are rotated into alignment, then locked in place with bracket fasteners. Tricolor LED alignment zone indicators instantly show if the curtains are properly or nearly aligned.
The S4B helps operators minimize downtime by helping operators address problems before they become serious issues. The weak beam strength warning LED on the S4B informs operators if the light curtain requires cleaning or is bumped out of alignment. Additionally, a remote signal can be sent via the cordset’s pin 5 to a PLC or HMI for local alerts.
The plug-and-play pigtail with 5-pin M12 connection is removable for cost-effective replacement. A damaged cordset can be easily replaced by selecting and saving the scan code setting, then swapping the old cordset with a new one and keeping the existing light curtain in place. No PC is necessary to select and save the scan code setting.
