When safety light curtains are guarding a danger zone where material must be moved automatically into or out of the zone, a muting technique is typically used. This is accomplished with muting sensors that detect transport material and distinguishes the difference between the material and personnel. The MLC 530 SPG safety light curtains from Leuze with Smart Process Gating provide efficient access guarding without muting sensors in a compact system design. The curtains also offer high security against tampering while allowing changes in transport material with no alignment of sensors

needed.

 

The light curtains use a control signal provided by a PLC and the interruption of the protective field itself for bridging to the material transport. The SPG method meets the material transport requirements without the need for additional sensors. Therefore, systems can be designed to be more compact and the risk of misalignment or damage to the sensors is eliminated as is the costs for their maintenance and servicing. More details for the MLC 530 SPG are available.
