Light grids for manual, material handling applications
Pilz’s PSENoptII is a type 3 light grid designed for manual workplaces and its infeed/discharge of material is useful for material handling in robot applications. The light grids work with continuous single beams that eliminate dead zones, which allows the light barriers to move closer to the application. The light grids are designed to increase the availability of the application; all significant causes or system defects responsible for a machine stop can be evaluated thanks to LEDs, which minimizes downtimes. The PSENopt II can also be installed easily with the corresponding assembly aids. Thanks to their 5-pin connection they can be directly connected to the decentralized periphery PDP67, which reduces the commissioning effort.
