Carlo Gavazzi has introduced several families of safety products, including light curtains, safety modules and safety mats. The safety light curtains meet requirements for guarding dangerous work areas. Type 2 and type 4 curtains are available, in finger, hand and body resolutions. They feature partial or total muting, which is easily programmable via on-board dipswitches. An override function allow users to access the protected area to clear jams. LEDs provide a diagnostic display. Protected heights range from 161 mm to 1,657 mm, with operating distances of 6 m, 15 m, 25 m or 50 m. Also, new safety modules are available for E-stop and safety gate control, two-hand safety control, light curtain and safety mat control, standstill monitor to detect if a machine has come to rest, and elevator door control and cabin levelling. The pressure-sensitive SM series safety mat controls an entire zone around the machine. Custom-built to exact dimensions, the mats feature a non-slip, heavy-duty surface.
