Type 4 safety light curtain
Safety light curtains are safety devices that create a virtual barrier around a hazard. These devices meet the highest safety standards of Type4, SIL3, Category4, and PLe. Integration is efficient and easy with the minimal footprint, durable housing, and options for reduced wiring. Each model achieves the high enclosure rating of IP65/IP67.
What makes a light curtain "robust"? KEYENCE has designed a light curtain with a structure that prevents damage from parts or tools by narrowing the exposed lens area and recessing it in an impact resistant housing.
STRONG - Rugged Exterior Increases Life & Decreases Downtime
The rugged metal housing and recessed lens make the GL-R resistant to twisting, vibration, and even direct impact. Additionally, its high power (49'+ of range) and increased enclosure ratings (IP65/IP67) allow the GL-R to withstand the most demanding environments.
SIMPLE - Less Wiring, Less Hardware, Less Work
A built-in controller, unique wiring options, and optional safety relay with quick connect cables greatly contribute to the simplicity of the GL-R Series. Setup is further simplified with quick fit brackets and tools that ensure alignment.
Approximately 1/2 the size of conventional light curtains*. In the past, compact applications made it difficult to integrate light curtains due to the size of the light curtains. This is why KEYENCE developed the GL-S Series of compact safety light curtains. Featuring two unique designs and simplified wiring options, the GL-S Series offers ideal solutions for countless safety needs. (* Compared to the volume of conventional KEYENCE models)
Seamless Integration Into Equipment
If the light curtain is mounted on a frame using the above method, the depth is a mere 15 mm compared to the 31.5 mm of the conventional model.
Quick and Easy Installation
Built-in mounting brackets and simplified wiring.
For safety and efficiency in the workplace. Introducing a safety light curtain completely focused on visibility.
