Control Logic has a new range of IP69K-rated safety light curtains and light grids from Schmersal that are suitable for use in hygiene-sensitive sectors including food, pharmaceuticals, meat and milk processing.

The SLC/SLG 440 IP69K series safety devices can withstand frequent cleaning with water, alkali solutions, foam, hot steam or high-pressure jets.

The locking caps are manufactured in stainless steel (V4A) as are the cable inlet and the fastening parts. Transparent protective tubes are made from polycarbonate to provide high resistance to cleaning agents, and these can withstand strong mechanical loads. If spray lances should accidentally strike the enclosure during pressure washing or there is impact with the enclosure, the units will continue to work thanks to the robust protective tubes.

As with the standard SLC440 safety light curtains, the SLC440 IP69K versions are available in lengths from 170 to 1920mm and with a choice of 14 or 30mm resolution. The safety light grids are available with two, three or four light beam grids.

All SLC/SLG440 IP69K devices are suitable for use in safety circuits up to PLe (EN 13849) or SIL3 (IEC 61508).
