Proximity Laser Scanner

The PLS laser scanner, rated category 3, uses infra-red light to monitor its environment without the use of a reflector. The unit operates on the ‘time of flight’ principle and so can accurately measure the distance between itself and any object infringing upon its protected area.
The PLS horizontally scans over a 180degree arc up to a range of approximately 50m, the secure protective field having a radius of 4m whilst the warning zone has a potential radius of 15m. Field zones can be programmed to suit site conditions.

Safety Switch Strips

The SIGUARD safety switch system consisting of evaluation module and switch strip are category 4 approved according to EN 954-1.
The evaluation unit is built into the narrow 22.5mm mounting rail housing and monitors the combination of transmitter and receiver. If the infra red beam passing between the transmitter and receiver within the rubber profile is interrupted then the evaluation unit will detect this and will activate a fail safe response, cutting the drive on machinery.
The mounting strip can be cut to any desired length and fastened to the protective edge, the profile is cut to the corresponding length and fitted into the strip mounting, the transmitter and receiver are then plugged into the profile and the cables connected to the monitoring unit.
The status of the system is displayed by two LEDs on the evaluation unit - supply voltage and enabling. The basic unit has two positive opening relay outputs which are used as enabling circuits.

Cable Operated Switches

SIGUARD Cable Operated Switches (Pull Wire Systems) are used for monitoring or emergency stop facilities on particularly endangered environments such as conveyor systems
Available in moulded plastic or metal in a variety of configurations the switches have 2 contacts, 1NC and 1NO with a degree of protection of IP65 and latching according to EN 418.
The cable operated switches are held in free position by the pretension force of the cable - if the cable is broken or pulled the NC contact opens and the drive to the machine is cut. The NO contact is used for signalling purposes.
