Use in factory automation

OY series safety light grids are used to safeguard hazardous areas and protect personnel. Thanks to their slim design, they are suited for applications with limited mounting space. Depending on the protected area height light grids with 2, 3 or 4 light beams are available.
Safety light grids are optoelectronic safety devices consisting of one transmitter and one receiver. They conform to the safety requirements of type 2 / SIL 2 or type 4 / SIL 3.
Typical applications include access prevention or hazardous area monitoring of robot cells and production lines.
