No blind zones
18 April 2013
The launch of the SICK deTec4 Core safety light curtains is claimed to set new performance standards in efficiency, installation and reliability for machine tool protection and warehousing applications.
Sick says that, as well as meeting the latest EN standards, the deTec4 Core has no blind zones, offering optimum positioning and protection against unsafe access while enabling ongoing efficient operation.
"The DeTec4 is very easy to install and commission with an automatic range measurement of up to10m. Once set up it operates economically and reliably," says Dr Martin Kidman, Sick (UK) safety specialist.
Through the space saving, robust design safety distances can be minimised to achieve efficient machine integration and to boost operator productivity.
