: Medium-resolution safety light screens
may be oriented horizontally to detect an ankle, leg or torso in an area guarding
application. They can be mounted in any orientation.
: Replace safety mats
with horizontally-mounted safety light screens. Tripping hazards
are minimized and the possibility of an operator stepping over undetected can be reduced by mounting the screen 300 mm above the floor.
: The optical sensing plane must be large enough and positioned effectively to prevent personnel from reaching over, stepping over or crawling under the sensing plane.
: A safety light screen with a resolution
of 50 mm can reliably detect an ankle, but at 70 mm, the sensing field should not be placed lower than 300 mm above the floor.
