Rockwell Automation offers slimline compact safety light curtains. These curtains have a 15mm by 20mm housing profile. Available in standard or cascadeable configurations, the GuardShield Micro400 light curtains are presence-sensing safety devices. They are suitable for many space-constrained industrial applications with hazardous machinery.
Their slim profile housing allows these GuardShield Micro400 light curtains to fit into applications where space is important.
Apart from a slim profile, the GuardShield Micro400 light curtain features expanded functionality through the MSR42 controller. The MSR42 controller is a multi-function safety module with hard-wired or software-configurable operating modes and solid state safety outputs.
The GuardShield Micro400 light curtains are available in 14mm and 30mm resolutions in regular or cascadeable configurations, for finger or hand detection. Both resolutions are now available in heights from 150 to 1200mm.
Accepting additional inputs such as E-stops or other machine safety devices, the MSR42 controller features advanced diagnostic capability by facilitating an optical diagnostic and configuration interface tool. This allows the user to configure the controller for different applications and to quickly check the status of inputs and outputs for diagnostic purposes.
