Opto-electronic Protective Devices


Safe personal protection for interaction between people and machines


Flexible production makes great demands on safety when automation requires that people and machines work hand-in-hand. This cooperation in the machine room for example must not compromise the safety of the employees. Opto-electronic protective devices such as light curtains from Balluff provide safe solutions that also enable great flexibility. Another benefit to you: by using light curtains that consist of multiple parallel light beams you save space, since they can replace cumbersome guard fence constructions or assemblies of multiple through-beam sensors.

The most important benefits

  • Finger, hand and body detection for convenient and fast interaction between operator and machine
  • Defined protected area with infrared protection field – suitable for safety applications up to PLe/SIL3
  • Safe machine stoppage in safety-critical applications
  • Better use of space by saving on protective fence designs
  • Reduced installation expense and space requirements
  • High level of manipulation protection
