Safety Laser Scanner Heralded As World’s Smallest

Safety Laser Scanner Heralded As World’s Smallest
IDEC Corp.

IDEC calls its SE2L Safety Laser Scanner as the world’s smallest and the world’s first with master/slave functionality and dual protection zones. The scanner is certified for use in safety applications including AGVs, forklifts, robots and industrial equipment. Master/slave functionality allows one SE2L scanner to act as master and communicate with up to three other scanners. The safety controller only needs to communicate with the master, reducing the required number of input and communication channels on the controller. This can allow lower-cost safety controllers to be used in applications such as providing full 360-degree protection for an AGV, which requires four scanners. Dual zone protection allows one SE2L scanner to scan two adjacent zones simultaneously and independently, performing the work of two scanners for the cost of one. A common application is providing dual light curtain protection for two robots mounted side by side. In many applications, dual zone protection cuts costs in half.
