New miniTwin safety light curtain meets level d, SIL2 safety requirements

18 August 2010

SICK (UK) is extending the benefits of its miniTwin light curtain technology to a much wider audience, with the launch of the miniTwin 2, which meets level d, SIL2 safety requirements. This latest addition incorporates both sender and receiver elements in a single miniature housing for continuous end to end field coverage.
miniTwin 2 units are 120mm to 1,200mm long and can be cascaded or daisy chained end-to-end to 3,600mm without any blind spots. Rapid response times permit safety monitoring with reduced reach distances for operators and therefore smaller machine footprints. Field coverage is continuous between adjacent units without loss of resolution. No special mountings or physical protection is required between curtains. L- shapes, V-shapes or even U-shapes are able to be protected.

The range of the miniTwin 2 is up to 4m; it has a slim 15mm by 32mm cross-section and choice of three object resolutions, from 14 to 34mm.

Configuration and alignment tools of the miniTwin 2 are automatic and built-in, with full status and diagnostic LED displays. The universal fixing brackets ensure rapid secure installation and the rotating connector, with standard M12 5-pin plug, will accommodate any orientation.
