Safety laser scanners help increase safety monitoring flexibility

July 22, 2014

Omron Automation and Safety has introduced OS32C-4M safety laser scanners. The Type 3 safety laser scanners provide a 13.12-ft. safety range, 49.21-ft. warning zones, and a 270-degree detection angle for safeguarding large robotic cells and body entry detection.

The scanners can be mounted 13.12 ft. high to eliminate the possibility of tampering. New pollution tolerance modes help ensure safe machine operation, even in dirty application environments. The result is more flexible safety monitoring and configuration. All models meet global standards for worldwide application.

The safety laser scanners can report status and measurement data via EtherNet/IP™. This allows users to check the operating state; analyze the cause of an emergency stop via LAN; and take quick corrective action, even in large-scale applications with multiple scanners. They also are available with user tools that help speed customer development time and conserve engineering resources.
