SL-V Safety Light Curtain incorporates highly-visible indicators to facilitate setup and to easily see the current operating status. The tough, slim body conforms to IP-65 and IP-67 rating standards. Edge-to-edge mounting and side-exit cabling allow precise fit into equipment. Operators can immediately determine whether the curtain is active, preventing situations where the beam is accidentally blocked. Indicators emit green lights when beam axes are properly aligned, facilitating setup. Red lights indicate location of curtain blockage if the beam axes become misaligned, dirty, or blocked. Standard, thin, L-shaped, E-to-E, tough standard, and space-saving brackets are available. Up to three curtains (or 240 beams max) can be connected in series. Curtain lengths range from 150 mm to 2,390 mm up to three total or 240 beams. The SL-V includes an automatic interference reduction function to stabilize operations without the requirement for special wiring. www.keyence.com/prl Keyence
