Whether it comes from a natural source, it comes from an incandescent bulb or it comes from a light-emitting diode, every industrial application requires light to function. But when heavy machinery, large tools and bulky equipment all have the potential to harm those using and controlling them, an industrial application is in need of another form light. A safety light curtain can protect people in a variety of industrial settings, regardless of what machinery surrounds them. It doesn’t matter if the area of industrial automation you work in is big or small; every person involved can benefit from having the added protection of a safety light curtain included in your application. At RILCO Industrial Controls, not only do we distribute safety light curtains, our team has a thorough understanding of how these devices function.

These opto-electric devices can range in size, it doesn’t matter what size application they are used for; the level of safeguard safety light curtains provide is unmatched. Working in tandem with a transmitter, safety light curtains project parallel beams of infrared light onto a receiver unit. When something opaque, like a human being for example, blocks that light path from the transmitter to the receiver, a stop signal is then sent to the machine the safety light curtain is guarding. Once that signal is sent out, that machine stops working. So, if an employee drops another piece of equipment or finds him/herself in a spot where he/she isn’t meant to be, with a safety light curtain installed, there is no need to worry; powerful machinery and equipment will come to an immediate halt.

Like many other pieces of safety equipment meant for industrial settings, safety light curtains come in different sizes with different functions to protect workers from accidentally entering a hazardous area. The devices are controlled by you, and, the function of the machines safety light curtains protect can either be controlled by selection through safe control at your instruction or can be integrated into an automated system, all depending on the variant of safety light curtain you choose.
