deTec4 Core - Safety light curtains

By SICK Pty Ltd

Efficient integration. Quick installation. Simply safe.


The deTec4 Core safety light curtain is impressive with a new innovative system of brackets, no blind zones, and the increased height of its protective field. The effort required for commissioning and maintenance is minimized. The half-rounded contour of the rear of the housing enables the brackets to be positioned in any location on the housing. The FlexFix bracket facilitates alignment at up to +/–15°. Integrated LED displays, diagnostic functions, and automatic calibration on the protective field width help to save time and costs during commissioning. The deTec4 Core is also suitable for use in harsh ambient conditions thanks to the enclosure rating IP 65 and IP 67. With ambient operating temperatures of between –30 °C and +55 °C, the safety light curtain can also be used in low-temperature environments. The deTec4 Core provides reliable hand and finger protection at the highest PL e protection level. The available protective field heights range from 300 mm to 2,100 mm.
