The F3SJ safety light curtain is available from Omron Scientific Technologies Inc. in finger-protection, hand-protection, and hand/limb/body-protection configurations. Sensors with protective heights of up to nearly 8.2 ft. are available for applications that involve large workpieces.
The low-profile light curtain is 0.23 in. thinner than previous models, and when used with the newly designed mounting brackets that allow beams to be aligned after the sensor is mounted, the total thickness is 1.02 in.—a reduction of 0.74 in.
Light curtain system parameters can be set with intuitive software, and system status can be checked with a laptop computer. When a computer isn't the most convenient tool for the work site, an optional setting console can be used to set parameters, monitor system status, and troubleshoot errors.
