Tougher safety light curtains to be shown for the first timeOn show for the first time at any UK exhibition will be two high-profile Leuze Mayser safety light curtains, the IP68-rated version of Compactplus that also offers integrate fieldbus connectivity without the need for additional coupling devices, and one of the strongest safety units on the market, the Solid 4, with its torsionally stiff housing plus high immunity to EMC disturbance for exceptional performance.

Both these safety light curtains will be the central focus on stand 50 at the Health and Safety 07 exhibition at the Reebok Stadium, Bolton (10 and 11 October 2007), since Leuze Mayser believes they are some of the most significant advances within the safety manufacturing industry.

Compactplus light curtains meet the requirements of SIL 3 in accordance with IEC 61508 and are available with a range of functions that include blanking, muting and cycle control. Couple these features with the added protection of IP68 classification, and Compactplus becomes one of the most versatile safety light curtains available - and it is now fully equipped for applications in food and other manufacturing processes where the ability to withstand washdown is a standard requirement.

Tough protection

The Solid-4 safety light curtain has been engineered for tough, arduous environments. Its trouble-free performance, which is complemented by a choice of standard resolutions – 14, 20, 30, 40, 90mm – makes it an extremely versatile safety light curtain for hazardous point protection or area protection across many diverse applications. In addition, where multiple light curtain guarding requirements are needed in close proximity, the Solid 4 is said to be in a field of its own since it incorporates two selectable light-beam channels. This eliminates potential optical cross-talk between neighbouring devices, thereby ensuring completely reliable safety protection.

Compactplus and Solid 4 are just part of Leuze Mayser's comprehensive range of safety light curtains and grids that offers over ninety variations to satisfy most standard and niche applications needs. Add to this a range of safety mats, edges and bumpers, which are also being shown on stand 50, then Leuze Mayser is certainly a supplier to consider when introducing, upgrading or revamping industrial safety installations.
