SAFEGATE

Safegate

Programmable safety light curtain with integrated muting functions.

 

The new SAFEGATE type 4 range of safety light curtains is the ideal solution for

the protection of a vast number of high-risk industrial applications, in particular those requiring a high level of integration of the muting functions.

 

SAFEGATE guarantees the integration of the muting sensors that can be connected directly to the safety light curtain.

 

 

  • Hardware configurable models (SM/SMO) allow configuration of the muting logic and functional parameters via the main connector wiring.
  • Programmable models (SMPO) functional parameters configuration is managed instead via Safegate Configuration Software (SCS).

    Muting applications

    "L" Logic Crossed beams

    Suitable solution for any applications of pallet exit.

     

    "L" Logic Parallel beams

    Suitable solution for transparent material: glass and bottling industry of pallet exit.

     

    "T" Logic Crossed beams

    Suitable solution for the most common pallet infeed/outfeed applications.
    Ideal solution in case of a continuous flow of pallets even without separation between the pallets.

     

    "T" Logic Parallel beams

    Suitable solution for transparent material and application with presence of a pallet with reduced width or not centred with respect to the conveyor.
    Through the verification of the 4 sensors, allows to set infinite muting time-out.
    Please note: this configuration needs a separation between two consecutive pallets equal to the distance between the two external muting sensors.
