Light Curtains

Light curtains are safety devices suitable for various types of machine tools and processing equipment. They are particularly useful where a physical barrier is not practicable.

Light beams are emitted from the transmitter post in various patterns and distances apart in accordance with the protection required (ie Limb protection / body protection/ hand protection). The light beams are aligned to the receiver post and both transmitter and receivers are wired into the machines control circuitry via a control relay. If a light beam /beams are interrupted then this will trigger a reaction which is generally an emergency stop signal.

Light curtains are commonly used on Presses, guillotines, saws and certain processing equipment / transfer lines & conveyors.

Solon Systems and it’s associates can specify, supply and fit safety light curtains for most suitable applications.

Note; We do not supply light guards for use on Press brakes

  4. Distance needed between the emitter and receiver parts of the light curtain.
