Banner EZ-SCREEN Safety Light Curtains Distributors


Type 4 safety light curtains protect personnel from injury and machines from damage by guarding points of operation, access, areas and perimeters. With self-checking circuitry, Type 4 light curtains provide control reliability and high levels of fault tolerance.

Non-contact EZ-SCREEN machine guarding systems protect fingers, hands and ankles, and guard perimeters and access, using self-contained emitters and receivers without a separate control box.

The space-saving, compact profile of the EZ-SCREEN LP is ideal for smaller machines, yet robust enough to meet the demands of large power presses.

EZ-SCREEN LS light screens are intuitive, easy-to-use safety devices used for machine safeguarding. They are built to withstand challenges commonly found in manufacturing and packaging environments.

If you are looking for Banner Safety Light Curtains, please call us on (800) 894 - 0412 or email us at we will do our best to help you find the Banner type 2 safety light screens that you are looking for at the most competitive prices possible.

Banner EZ-SCREEN Type 2 Safety Light Curtain A Low-Cost Solution for Lower Risk Applications Distributor


Banner EZ-SCREEN Type 2 emitters and receivers provide a redundant, microprocessor-controlled, opposed-mode optoelectronic "curtain of light", or "light screen". EZ-SCREEN Type 2 typically is used for point-of-operation safeguarding, and is suited to safeguard a variety of lower-risk machinery.

The EZ-SCREEN Type 2 is a two-piece (two-box) system comprising an emitter and a receiver, but no external controller. The external device monitoring (EDM) function ensures the fault detection capability required by EN ISO 13849-1 Category 2.

The EZ-SCREEN Type 2 emitters have a row of synchronized modulated infrared (invisible) light emitting diodes (LEDs) in a compact metal housing. Receivers have a corresponding row of synchronized photodetectors. The light screen created by the emitter and receiver is called the defined area; its width and height are determined by the length of the sensor pair and the distance between them. The maximum range is 15 m (50 ft), which decreases if corner mirrors are used. Resolution is 30 mm (1.18 in). Both emitter and receiver feature LEDs to provide continuous indication of the System's operating status, alignment and error conditions.

Banner AG4-4E & AG4-6E Series Safety Laser Scanners Distributors

Type 3 Safety Laser Scanners

Banner Engineering's AG4 Series Laser Scanners are two-dimensional safety laser scanners that effectively protect personnel and stationary or mobile systems within a user designated area as well as provide access protection for AGS gates on a robot cell. Five LEDs on the housing front show the Scanner's operating status.

The Banner AG4 Safety Laser Scanner (the Scanner) is an optical, two-dimensional measuring Safety Laser Scanner. The Scanner emits periodic light pulses via a rotating deflection mirror. The light pulses reflect back from objects in the sensing field and are then detected by the Scanner receiver. The Scanner calculates the precise position of an obstruction from the light travel time and the pulse's emitted angle. If the obstruction is within the user-defined Protective Field (PF), the Scanner switches the safety outputs OFF.

Banner SI-LS83 SI-LS100 Series Limit Switch Style 83 mm 100 mm Machine Switches Distributor

Safety Interlock Switches

Safety interlock switches respond when a mechanical guard opens. Interlock switches feature "positive opening" contacts for high reliability regardless of environmental conditions and withstand attempts to override the switch and defeat the system.

Three-component magnet-style SI-MAG series switches tolerate dirt buildup, washdowns, long sensing distance and shifts in alignment. SI Series Safety Limit (position) Switches expand solutions for monitoring the position of a wide variety of guards, gates, covers and other movable machine fixtures/tooling. Locking style switches lock a mechanical guard until hazardous motion stops completely. All models offer a choice of locking mechanisms and operating voltages.

Small switches housed in plastic are available in limit switch and flat-pack styles, with a choice of actuators. Load-bearing hinge, rotary and standard hinge style switches provide an adjustable range of operation. Small switches housed in metal are available in limit switch and trumpet styles, with a choice of actuators. EZ-LIGHT SI-K30Lxxx7P is available in three models for the purpose of indicating an open/stopped interlocked guard (red), and an armed/closed interlocked guard (green or off).

ABB Power Supply

Up to 62 Binary I/O Devices can be connected and supplied according to the AS-interface bus technology with a single two-conductor cable. The communication signals are modulated onto the slaves' DC supply voltage of the AS-Interface system, which therefore requires a specific power supply with integrated data decoupling. The DC/DC converter is specifically designed with integrated data decoupling for the supply

IDEC Software

IDEC WindMSG is a Windows based programming tool designed to program IDEC's HG1X Series of Operator Interfaces. WindMSG Demo software allows you to demo the simplicity and ease of using the HG1X Text display programming software. There is no time limit and it is completely free! Only limitations is that you can not download or upload projects to the HG1X display. But you can create and save projects and once a licensed version is purchased you can download
