Light Curtains - Press Safety

Light Curtains - Press Safety

The Guardstar B Series light curtain has been designed as a compact, intelligent unit capable of answering current and future demands within the guarding industry.

Advanced electronics are at the heart of the New B Series with extensive use of powerful surface-mounted micro-processors and Guardstar's Application Specific Integrated Circuits, (ASIC).

Flexible Interface: An emitter and receiver pair function as a self-contained system which is capable of safety functions without additional equipment.

Construction: The tough one-piece aluminum extruded body measures only 35mm (1 3/8") x 45mm (1 3/4") providing integrated appearance on the machine. It's strong enough for the toughest industrial environments and has excellent resistance to vibrations and impacts. The use of ASIC electronics also means a greatly reduced component count for higher reliability and simple servicing.

EN 61496 Type 4 Design: This is the highest level of the most stringent standard in the world. CE certified and marked. (Independently third party approved.)
