Floating blanking

OY safety light curtains with floating blanking function are used to safeguard hazardous areas and protect personnel. Depending on the protected area height and number of beams, the units can be adjusted to protect hands or an entire person. Thanks to their slim design, they are suited for applications with limited mounting space.
The floating blanking function allows blanking of up to three neighbouring beams. This function is suitable for applications where the protected area is interrupted by the material to be processed or a part of the machine.
Safety light curtains are optoelectronic safety devices consisting of one transmitter and one receiver. They conform to the safety requirements of type 4 / SIL 3.
These units are typically used in the metal and wood-working industries to safeguard material feed processes on presses.
