The new Schmersal SLC/SLG 445 series of Safety Light Curtains and Safety Light Grids from Control Logic are true multi-function all-rounders.

The functional diversity allows the individual application requirements to be more flexible – with the aim to have the highest productivity and safety possible.

Along with features such as; fixed blanking, floating blanking, fixed blanking with movable edge region, double reset, contactor control (EDM), automatic mode, re-start mode and beam coding, the SLC/SLG445 series also offers multi-scan and muting.

The Multi-Scan function offers multiple evaluations of the protection zone. This increases the availability of the safety light curtain by suppressing temporary disturbances like flying burrs, steam clouds and flying insects thus preventing false triggering.

The Mute function allows safe time-limited bridging of the safety light curtain for objects to be transported into or out of the danger zone.

Up to four muting sensors can be connected easily via a field distributor with integrated cable, reducing effort and increasing the availability of the system.

Set up is simplified as selection and configuration of these functions is made via a single push-button and the 7-segment display – no need for software and a PC.

The compact construction in a rugged and weight saving 28 x 23 mm profile allows SLC/SLG445 to be used in tight installation situations.

The SLC445 and SLG445 series are suitable for use in safety circuits up to Type 4 to EN 61496-1, PLe (EN 13849-1) or SIL3 (EN 62061).
