Hand Protection Type 2 & Type 4

Aluminum profile 42 x 48 mm with dual fixing groove. Safetinex light curtains are self-protected against overloads and short-circuits. They can also withstand short high-voltage overloads. Safetinex light curtains with M12 5-pole connector are standard, M26 connector versions are also available. Versions with PUR cable, 2 m, 5 m or 10 m long, are available on request.

The resolution of the safety light curtain or access control barrier must be chosen according to the application and the required safeguarding function. It is defined as the minimum size of an object that can be reliably and safely detected at any position when placed in the protective field. The choice of a specific resolution depends on the part of the body which needs protection (finger, hand or whole body). In all cases, the primary function of the protective device is to stop the machine before the hazardous point is reached and to prevent unintentional machine start-up. This function must comply with the category of the safety-related components of the machine.

The Safetinex YBB light curtains and YCA access control barriers operate with infrared beams. When the device detects a finger, a hand or a person entering the defined hazardous area, the protective equipment immediately stops the machine, or renders it harmless. When operating in manual restart mode, the reset button enabling the operator to restart the machine must be located outside the hazardous area. From there, the operator must have a full view of the hazardous area to make sure that nobody is in danger before restarting the machine.

For the operators of fully automated packaging machines, the hazard involved is mostly slight. If the result of the risk assessment allows the use of a Type 2, category 2, PL c, SIL 1 safety light curtain, a protected machine opening can be used to interrupt the conveyor or material feeding as well as the packaging process itself as soon as an operator reaches into the protective field of the light curtain. Furthermore, the same installation can be used to detect a material jam or products that have tipped over.

SymCom Monitor

The Model 202-200-SP-NHV is a voltage monitor designed to protect single-phase motors regardless of size. It is used on 190-240VAC, 50/60Hz motors to prevent damage caused by low voltage. A unique microcontroller-based voltage sensing circuit constantly monitors the single-phase voltage to detect harmful power line conditions. When a harmful condition is detected, the 202-200-SP-NHV's output relay is deactivated after a fixed trip
