Welcome to Kickstart where you get to see new products here at AutomationDirect. We hope you enjoyed the Boss Alert video we created featuring our Light Curtains. Of course I could have created that same style setup with a number or products from Relays, to PLCs, indicator lights to HMIs and from sensors to light curtains. But we chose this route of using light curtains in order to feature them. Today I am going to show you our Safety Light Curtains from the brand Contrinex. Automation Direct has been carrying safey light curtains for years. We offer 42 light curtains that are category 4/ type 4 and 6 accessories that go along with them. We offer two styles of light curtains: Finger safe with 14mm resolution and Hand safe with 30mm resolution and these range from sizes of 142mm up to 1827mm. Light curtains are referred to as: AOPD or active Optoelectronic Protective Devices. These safety light curtains are used in applications where risks cannot be eliminated by machine design but require frequent and open access during process or operations. You can find light curtains in applications like cutting or rolling machines, packaging, automated assembly machinery as well as many styles of presses just to name a few. These require a sender and a receiver unit that look for a break or interruption in the light beam. Make sure you order one of each for a complete system. Mounting hardware is included. All of the units we sell require a 12mm quick disconnect cable, so don't forget to order them and while you are at it, take a look at the accessories for these light curtains like these protective columns. You can find the agency approvals and specs for these Contrinex Light Curtains on our website at : www.automationdirect.com Don't forget: we sell other safety products like safety switches, safety relay modules, eye protection, hand protection and more.
