Banner Engineering Introduces New Safety Grid System for Access and Perimeter Guarding
March 21, 2018
MINNEAPOLIS, MN, May 9, 2018 – Banner Engineering, a leading provider of technology for industrial automation, today announced the release of the SGS safety grid system for safeguarding equipment access points and long-range perimeters.
SGS Safety Grid Systems are Type 4 safety devices that create a grid of two, three, or four light beams over a protective height of 500, 800, 900, or 1200 mm. They protect personnel from injury and equipment from damage by detecting a body, torso, or object entering a hazardous area.
These multiple beam safety light devices operate in two-piece matched systems. Emitter/Receiver systems are capable of safeguarding over very long distances and are available in models with a range of up to 60 meters. Active/Passive systems require wiring only on the active side of the deployment, simplifying installation and reducing costs.
Models featuring integral muting enable a direct connection between the system and muting sensors. Material can enter or exit a hazardous area without requiring an external module or controller to mute the safety grid. Muting arm kits specifically designed for these systems are available with pre-mounted sensors and hardware to simplify setup and speed up deployment in these applications.
SGS Safety Grid Systems are certified for use in North America and the European Union. They feature built-in DIP switches for system configuration without software or a PC. An on-board alignment lamp and LED indicators simplify alignment and troubleshooting.
Cost-Effective Price Point: SGS Grid Systems cost approximately 30% less than EZ-SCREEN Grid Systems and are priced competitively with similar grid systems from other manufacturers.
Integral Muting: Muting sensors can be directly connected to models featuring integral muting, eliminating the expense of adding an external module or controller to enable muting.
Muting Arm Kits: Available in four configurations with pre-mounted hardware and Q20 retroreflective sensors and reflectors, muting arm kits make it easy to add muting capabilities to any application.
Reduced Wiring: Active/Passive systems consist of a mirror assembly and an active transceiver that houses both the emitter and receiver: only one side of the deployment requires power and wiring, simplifying installation and reducing costs.
