Rotech Group Pty Ltd has introduced the Sentinel HR safety light curtains to ensure optimal safety of vehicles and personnel in industrial workplaces.
A single PE safety beam may be insufficient to meet Workplace Health and Safety requirements pertaining to automatic gates and doors. For instance, in the case of a car and caravan passing through an automatic gate with a single PE safety beam, it is very likely that the tow hitch will not be detected and the gate will close in between the car and the caravan causing damage and possibly injury.
Similarly, B Double trucks or Utes with pipes hanging over the edge of the tray can also be impacted by a closing gate, leading to vehicle damage, injury to personnel and even legal action for compensation.
Rotech’s Sentinel HR safety light curtains incorporate up to eight evenly spaced beams, which can be used in situations where maximum coverage is required. Offering a detection range of 20 metres and coverage up to two metres from ground level, the Sentinel HR ensures safety for a larger area. It can detect an item even as small as 20mm in diameter to avoid accidents and hazards.
Recommended as a detection device for personnel as well as vehicles to ensure safe access, Sentinel HR safety light curtains are suitable for use with all gates, boom gates and doors. It can also be used to ensure workplace safety under all weather conditions as it features a weather-proof design.
Key features of Sentinel HR safety light curtains include electronic components housed in an anodised aluminium channel measuring 26mm² with ABS plastic cover; compact design allowing installation in very tight spaces; mounting brackets adjustable up to 180° to get the perfect alignment; choice of 500mm, 1000mm, 1500mm, and 2000mm lengths to suit various applications; wide 20m coverage; and extremely fast response rate of 120ms.
