Safety Light Curtains

safety curtainsMany high-pressure waterjet customers require an additional level of safety by including a Light Curtain Guarding along the front load/unload area of the waterjet system. The safety Light Curtain Guarding consists of an emitter unit and receiver unit mounted onto side safety fencing.

The side fencing prevents operator side entry allowing access only from the front. The Light Curtain Guarding allows operator access only when the cutting cycle is complete, and the high-pressure waterjet is turned off. If the operator enters while the machine is cutting, the Light Curtain Guarding beam is broken, the circuit is interrupted, the system is automatically e-stopped, and the high-pressure water is dumped.
