OMRON announces OS32C-4M Safety Laser Scanners

July 14, 2014 - OMRON Automation and Safety announces OS32C-4M Type 3 safety laser scanners that provide a 4 meter safety range, 15 meter warning zones and a 270 degree detection angle for safeguarding large robotic cells and body entry detection. They can also be mounted 4 meters high to eliminate the possibility of tampering. New pollution tolerance modes ensure safe machine operation, even in the dirtiest and dustiest application environments. The result is more flexible safety monitoring and configuration that enables improved machine safety and productivity. All models meet global standards for worldwide application; select models are available for same-, 3- or 5-day shipment. These safety laser scanners can report status and measurement data via EtherNet/IP. This helps keep machines up and running by enabling users to check the operating state and analyze the cause of an emergency stop via LAN, and take quick corrective action, even in large-scale applications with multiple scanners. They are also available with user tools that help speed customer development time and conserve engineering resources. Additionally, the configuration tool provides a “maintenance access level” enabling users to make only non-safety related programming changes, and employs a “non-safety checksum” for easier re-commissioning when non-safety changes are made. A “zone coordinate import/export” function allows users to modify the shape and size of a monitoring zone by importing coordinates from a text file. OS32C safety laser scanners provide configurable object resolutions of 30, 40, 50 and 70 mm to accommodate hand and arm detection applications. They feature a compact 104.5 mm profile, light 1.3 kg weight and consume just 5 W power (3.75 W in standby mode). Combined with innovative features that include up to 70 sets of highly flexible and easily configurable detection zones, the OS32C is easy to handle and install, and delivers the versatility needed to solve diverse presence detection and collision avoidance application needs. The status display and eight patented Individual Sector Indicators also enable users to determine at a glance the unit’s operating state and error codes, and assess the direction of an intrusion.
