BANNER ENGINEERING INTRODUCES RUGGED SAFETY LIGHT CURTAIN
WITH LEAN DESIGN FOR ECONOMY AND EASE OF USE

New EZ-SCREEN LS features IEC IP65/IP67 rated housing and metal end caps

Banner Engineering (www.BannerEngineering.com) has introduced a rugged safety light curtain designed for ease of use and long life in a wide range of manufacturing and packaging applications.

Applications include:

  • Automated production
  • Robotic work cells
  • Molding and power presses
  • Packaging
  • Assembly
  • Lean manufacturing
  • Metalworking
  • Plastics
  • Food/Brewing/Bottling
  • Automotive
  • Aviation
  • Appliances
  • Electronics
  • Safety
  • Pharmaceuticals

The new EZ-SCREEN LS light curtain features thick aluminum housing and metal end caps for durability in challenging situations like power press and metal forming operations. Its lean, simple design emphasizes features that deliver high value while eliminating others that may complicate installation or increase maintenance requirements.

Highly visible and intuitive bi-color alignment indicators allow simplified setup, easy troubleshooting and streamlined installation. The end-to-end sensing design of the EZ-SCREEN LS eliminates gaps in detection when mounted on top of machine work surfaces and between cascaded segments. For added ease of use, the system requires no PC software, DIP switches or other device for configuration.

To accommodate diverse applications, the light curtain is available in three resolutions—14 mm, 23 mm and 40 mm—with a range of up to 12 meters. Sensor lengths range from 280 mm to 1,820 mm in 70 mm increments. Cascade models allow users to combine up to four systems of any length, any resolution and any number of beams.

Dual-scan technology provides high immunity to EMI, RFI, ambient light, weld flash, and strobe light for dependable operation in harsh environments. The screens comply with most rigorous worldwide safety standards including Type 4 per IEC61496-1/-2, Category 4 PLe per EN/ISO 13849-1, and SIL3/SILCL3 per IEC 61508/IEC 62061.

Banner Engineering is a leading manufacturer of vision, photoelectric and ultrasonic sensors, fiber optics sensors, machine guarding systems, measurement and inspection systems and wireless network products. The company provides local application support worldwide.
