Leuze electronic is launching a range-topping addition to its RSL 400 series of laser area scanners for machine safety applications. The new RSL 440 is a high-end laser scanner with the largest functional bandwidth of all models within the RSL 400 series. It provides 100 reversible field pairs - or 50 reversible quads - and up to ten independent sensor configurations. Among other things, it is well suited to mobile applications - especially due to its four-field mode and its nine configurable signal outputs for status control (for example, during movement with/without load). In addition to the large scanning range, the RSL 440 benefits from a facility for emergency-stop linkage and configurable data output for supporting navigation. The internal safe time delay can be used to set stop categories.
The complete RSL 400 series comprises 16 device versions with operating ranges of up to 8.25m. The safety laser scanners can be configured easily via Bluetooth and Ethernet TCP/IP. Despite the large number of possible field pairs, the creation of independent configurations with application-oriented one-step configuration is said to be simpler than ever. The large 270-degree scanning angle of the devices is particularly advantageous - for example, in the case of mounting on corners or edges for front and side protection - and, depending on the application, can often replace a second laser scanner.
A large plain-text display with integrated electronic spirit level ensures simple alignment when the connector unit is being mounted. This connector unit also includes the entire cable management. The scanner unit itself can be removed at any time using standard tools and other RSL 400 devices installed without the need for realignment, readjustment or lengthy configuration – which is an important advantage for maintenance and repair.
Thanks to its outstanding design, the RSL 400 series laser scanner was rated by a broad audience at SPS IPC Drives 2015 and chosen as the winner of the 2016 GIT Security Award – a prestigious award presented by the Wiley-VCH publishing house.
