JEMTECH's laser safety sensor range has been expanded with the SHRIKE-D receiver unit. The existing SH-L5 product is used to protect long folding machines and in other edge/trap point applications at up to 15m.
Above the 15m range, the existing product will work, but alignment becomes too critical for many installations. A laser beam aligned on a 10mm diameter target at these ranges does not offer a reliable solution.
In response to this problem and with feedback from its customers, JEMTECH has introduced the SHRIKE-D receiver.
This receiver features a receiver lens with 50mm collecting diameter, effectively increasing the range of the safety sensor to over 150m. It uses the same transmitter module as the Shrike-L5 system.
The SHRIKE safety beam range interfaces with JEMTECH's Vigilante safety relays and controls. It uses a self testing dual output interface that works with many other safety control modules.
The new unit has applications on long-conveyor lines, large perimeters with auxiliary mirrors and in security systems.
