Personnel Protection with Fixed Blanking and Reduced Resolution
To protect hands and fingers from the hazardous parts of a carton erector while allowing flat cartons into the machine
The EZ-SCREEN safety light screen uses fixed blanking and reduced resolution (also called floating blanking) to allow flat boxes to enter the machine. Fixed blanking allows the safety light screen to ignore the boxes, and reduced resolution lets it ignore slight variations in the box height.
If the supply of boxes runs out, leaving the fixed blanked area clear, the EZ-SCREEN ligted curtain stops the machine so the operator can safely refill the carton supply.
