Many operators wanted a function that would not just simply turn
the safety light curtain on or off, but instead clearly indicate
the error*. In response to this request, the alert output (lockout
output) can be used additionally. The warning indicator lights up
only when there is an error.
*Welding or disconnection of relays in the external device, or sensor damage etc.
Since the cable direction is symmetrical in a plane, cables can be brought to the inner side of the equipment. This prevents problems where cables become snagged on an obstruction.
Previously, when checking the model name during maintenance, the model name was occasionally hidden by a cover or wall, or only the series name was visible, thus making it difficult to quickly determine the appropriate model name. In the SL-V Series, the model name is noted on both the side and the detection surface so that it can be found quickly.
In a workplace where multiple setups are lined together, multiple safety light curtains are also used. In this situation, the safety light curtains can interfere with each other, thus making operations unstable. The SL-V includes an automatic interference reduction function to stabilize operations without special wiring.
