Nov. 12, 2015 – Omron Automation and Safety says its F3SG-RE global safety light curtain designed for machine guarding solutions does not require blanking or muting capabilities. The F3SG-RE series provides On/Off detection and complements the fully programmable, multi-segment cascading F3SG-RA series of safety light curtains to offer OEM machine builders options within a single family, says Omron.
“Cost savings and increased efficiencies are due in large part to the F3SG-RE’s ease of operation, easy mount brackets, simplified connectivity, and informative indicators that expedite installation and reduce maintenance downtime,” noted company officials. Both series boast finger and hand protection models with 14 mm resolution and 30 mm resolution, respectively. The IP67-rated housing withstands water washdown without additional protective tubes, making it ideal for a variety of environments and production lines, adds the company.
