What’s behind the curtain?

18 May 2018

EUCHNER unveils their new LCA range of light grids & light curtains, making access control & securing danger areas easier.

EUCHNER is expanding its industrial safety engineering product range by the addition of non-contact safety guards. The light grids and light curtains from series LCA are used for access control and securing danger areas. They are available as multi-beam light grids (two to four beams) or as light curtains with various resolutions from 14 to 50mm. Light grids are ideally suited for access control, while light curtains are perfect for protecting fingers, hands, arms and body detection. 

Depending on the requirements for the location to be secured, EUCHNER offers type-2 and type-4 light grids and light curtains with different protective field heights and ranges. 

Simple setup and parametrisation can be performed directly on the device without additional programming on a PC. An integrated LED indicator provides a quick overview of the device status. The narrow design and robust housing suitable for industrial use permit simple installation even in confined spaces. Light grid and light curtains from series LCA meet all requirements in standards applicable to noncontact safety guards. Performance Level PL c / SIL 1 or Performance Level PL e / SIL 3 can be met, depending on the selected type (2 or 4). 

Various muting functions can be implemented in combination with the freely programmable small safe control system MSC. With the aid of additional sensors, the MSC monitors the proper bypassing procedure for an object and, for example, can differentiate between a person and object moving through the protective field.
Up to three light curtains of type 4 can be connected in series for simple protection of dangerous areas. Master/slave versions with various resolutions and protective field heights are available for this purpose.
