High function laser scanner brings affordable safety

12 February 2018

IDEC introduce its new laser scanner (SE2L) with features such as 270° protection, 5m sensing range, 20m warning zone and a "master/slave" function (a maximum of 4 SE2Ls can be inter-connected using RS485).

In today’s automation applications, safety of your personnel is paramount. Area protection is a simple way that ensures the safety of the machine operators in a hazardous area, or those approaching the machine. This protection can be provided by safety mats, perimeter guarding, light curtains or by implementing a laser scanner. 

IDEC introduce its new laser scanner (SE2L) with features such as 270° protection, 5m sensing range, 20m warning zone and a "master/slave" function (a maximum of 4 SE2Ls can be inter-connected using RS485). 

With applications such as access protection, the SE2L provides other features including Dual Area Protection - where 1 scanner can monitor two separate hazardous areas to stop the related machinery (the hazard) without the need for a reflective sensor, thus eliminating optical alignment issues and therefore could replace 2 light curtains.

As for AGV applications - this is where the IDEC Laser Scanner comes in to its own. The SE2L has a built in encoder input, which allows the scanner to switch between sensing patterns (32 area patterns can be configured), allowing it to adjust speed when its "sees" an obstacle.

The device is configured with easy-to-use software allowing area configuration of up to 32 area patterns, detection of positional change, teach function and check detection status (area data & distance measurement data can be recorded while monitoring on a PC).
