New light curtains from Rotech for optimal safety of vehicles and personnel

At times, a single PE safety beam might not be sufficient to completely ensure that all the Workplace Health and Safety requirements for automatic gates and doors are met. Consider that a car and caravan pass through an automatic gate having only a single PE safety beam installed; it is very likely that the tow hitch will not be detected and the gate will close in between the car and the caravan causing damage and possibly injury.

The same situation applies to B double trucks or utes with pipes hanging over the edge of the tray. Both of these situations could lead to damage of vehicles or injury to personnel and could also result in legal action for compensation.

Rotech offers a new solution to such problems. Our Sentinel HR Safety Light Curtain includes upto 8 evenly spaced beams, which can be used in situations where maximum coverage is required. It has a detection range of 20 metres and can cover up to 2 metres from ground level, thereby ensuring safety for a larger area. It can detect an item even as small as 20 mm in diameter to avoid accidents and hazards. The light curtain can be used as a detection device for personnel as well as vehicles and ensures safe access. 

The light curtain is suitable for use with all gates, boom gates and doors. It can also be used under all weather conditions as it features a weather proof design. Additionally, its mounting brackets can be adjusted up to 180° to get the perfect alignment! 

The electronic components are housed in an anodised aluminium channel measuring 26 mm square, with an ABS plastic cover. This compact design allows installation in very tight spaces. They are available in lengths of 500 mm, 1000 mm, 1500 mm, and 2000 mm, to suit various applications

With a wide coverage and an extremely fast response rate of 120ms, the HR light curtain is a simple yet extremely efficient alternative to other detection systems. With the Sentinel HR Safety Light Curtain, you can be assured about the safety at your premises and no longer need to worry about mishaps or charges against work health and safety.
