Nov. 17, 2016 – Wieland Electric says its SLC series safety light curtains provide trusted protection for machine operators and against unauthorized access.
Boasting slim, rigid housings for easy adjustment and stable operation, the series’ integrated double-scan technology promises to avoid unwanted downtime in harsh operating conditions. They can be made as Type 2 or Type 4 devices, and are available in five beam resolutions (14, 20, 30, 40, and 90 mm), protection field heights spanning 150 mm – 1800 mm, and a range of accessories. Configuration of the light curtains is done through wiring and therefore does not require a connection to a PC or setting of DIP switches. The series is available in two models: the SLC Standard, which features an LED display, double-scan technology, automatic start, and selectable transmission channels and range reduction to prevent mutual interference. Meanwhile, the SLC Select offers the additional benefits of manual start/restart interlock, external device monitoring (EDM), and a seven-segment display that provides diagnostic and status messages.
