Type 4, SIL3, SILCL3, PL e, Cat. 4 safety light curtains with integrated Muting functions

The Janus type 4 family of safety light curtains is the ideal solution for the protection of a vast number of high-risk industrial applications, in particular those requiring a high level of integration of the safety functions.

For example, in the models with built-in Muting function,Janus guarantees the independence of the light curtain from the control circuits of the system (often distant from the protected gate) and, where necessary, also the integration of the Muting sensors.

Settings of each function integrally performed via themain connector. No need of configuration via software.

    • L Logic Crossed beams
      Suitable solution for any applications of pallet exit.
    • L Logic Parallel beams
      Suitable solution for transparent material: glass and bottling industry of pallet exit.
    • T Logic Crossed beams
      Suitable solution for the most common pallet infeed/outfeed applications. Ideal solution in case of a continuous flow of pallets even without separation between the pallets.
    • T Logic Parallel beams
      Suitable solution for transparent material and application with presence of a pallet with reduced width or not centred with respect to the conveyor. Through the verification of the 4 sensors, allows to set infinite muting time-out. Please note: this configuration needs a separation between two consecutive pallets equal to the distance between the two external muting sensors.
