A car travels along a conveyor into a hazardous area guarded by an SGS Series Safety Grid System. As the car approaches, the SGS Grid is temporarily muted to allow the car to pass without stopping the conveyor. While the Grid is muted, there is the risk that a worker will attempt to enter the hazardous area through the interlocked breakaway guard, putting the worker in a dangerous situation and presenting the possibility that the worker will be struck by the moving car.
In this application, machine operators require access to the wafer carrier station. The EZ-SCREEN ESD safety light curtain system is configured to safeguard the process and operator using emitters, receivers and mirrors to enclose three sides of the station. Safety light curtains allow quicker, easier access than physical barriers while preventing machine movement if the operator reaches into the hazardous zone.
The solution requires the sensor to mount snugly within a machine opening, with continual end-to-end sensing that leaves no gaps. This enables the light screen to be located a minimum distance from the machine hazard point, using minimal floor space (which reduces the reach for the operator), and eliminating snag and aesthetic issues. At 28 mm x 26 mm (1.1" x 1"), Banner's EZ-SCREEN LP safety light screen is incredibly compact and can mount in tight spaces.
