Rockwell Automation offers one of the broadest safety portfolios in the industry to help you achieve both safety and productivity goals in the process and discrete manufacturing applications.
Safety light curtains are photoelectric presence sensors specifically designed to protect personnel from injuries related to hazardous machine motion.
Light curtains offer optimal safety, yet they allow for greater productivity and are the more ergonomically sound solution when compared to mechanical guards.
Rockwell Automation GuardShield™ safety light curtains include Point of Operation Control (POC) models for finger and hand protection and Perimeter Access Control (PAC) products for whole-body protection.
Rockwell Automation 450L GuardShield™ POC safety light curtains are unlike traditional safety light curtains, which are based on the separate transmitter and receiver units.
Patented technology allows each transceiver to be used as a transmitter or receiver via an innovative plug-in module. The 450L-B is the basic model with on/off functionality. The advanced 450L-E model features integrated laser alignment, cascading, blanking, and integrated muting.
What new is coming?
- The advanced 450L-E model now features blanking and integrated muting.
- Connection over EtherNet/IP makes the 450L-E light curtain a smart safety device that enhances safety while providing connectivity through The Connected Enterprise®
