Muting Arms and Muting Sensors for Safety Light Curtains

to configure and order.
Muting arms for safety light curtains prevent personnel access but can allow other objects access to the protected area. Bracket sets make installation easy. Individual muting sensors are also available for non-standard applications.
Light curtains protect personnel from harm and machinery from damage by utilizing an array of photoelectric beams to sense intrusion into a
protected area and remove power from dangerous equipment. Safety light curtains are available for finger protection, hand protection and body
protection (access control). Type 4 / Category 4 curtains achieve high fault tolerance through redundancy/monitoring. Products are available
from Contrinex, ReeR and Datalogic, and include:
14mm resolution (space between beams) models for finger protection
30mm resolution models for hand protection
300 and 400mm resolution models for body protection/access control
Mirror and protective columns

Mirrors allow a single pair of light curtains to protect multiple sides of an area and reduce the number of
sender/receiver pairs needed. Protective columns protect a light curtain from damage and misalignment due to
being hit by machinery or personnel.
Protective columns for body protection safety light curtains are available in up to 2020mm column height (Contrinex)
or 1330mm column height (ReeR)
Mirror columns for body protection safety light curtains are available in 3- and 4-mirror models or one continuous
Mounting bases available for all column models
Muting Arms and Muting Sensors
Muting allows for the temporary suspension of a safety light curtain's function during the cycle of a machine/process
when no hazard exists, or when objects are intentionally entering or leaving the area. For example, muting can disarm
the safety function when pallets on a palletizing machine are exiting the protected area. Pre-configured and pre-wired
muting arms and sensors are available to work with a wide selection of light curtains.
T-type muting arms: 2 or 4 crossed beams, 2 or 4 parallel beams, one- or two-way
L-type muting arms: 2 or 4 crossed beams, 2 or 4 parallel beams, one- or two-way
Coded muting sensors are available in sender/receiver pairs or separately
