Control Logic presents Schmersal’s SLC440COM Series safety light curtains and SLG440COM Series safety light grids in an economical, compact package.

Designed to offer high protection in hazardous industrial environments, these low cost safety solutions incorporate all standard functions including highly visible status signalling in a rugged housing proven to be less susceptible to mechanical damage and misalignment from torsion or bending. 

Similar to Schmersal’s Type 4 safety light curtains, the SLC440COM series features a robust one-piece extruded, reinforced housing in a compact 28mm x 33mm rectangular profile. The profile length corresponds to the protective field height to allow for optimal installation within the application, providing a space saving of approximately 50mm over a standard light curtain.

Operating status can be seen from a distance. The end cap of the receiver unit is moulded from a semi-transparent plastic and illuminated by LED, indicating green for correct operation and red when the protected field has been interrupted or flashing red to indicate fault conditions.

Schmersal’s SLC440COM safety light curtains are used for the protection of hazardous areas, and are available with resolutions of 14mm, 30mm or 35mm, and protection field heights between 330 and 1770 mm. The SLG440COM safety light grids are available with 2, 3, or 4 beams for perimeter guarding. 

Both series are suited for use in safety circuits up to CAT 4 (AS 4024), PLe (EN 13849) or SIL3 (IEC 61508).
