Rockford Systems Expands Protector Light Curtain Line with New Reflector Mirrors
Rockford Systems, LLC., a premier provider of machine safeguarding products and services, has introduced a new economical line of light curtain mirrors that leverage the long scanning range of the company’s PROTECTOR Series Light Curtains to help control access near industrial machinery where there is the potential for injury. The new mirrors enable safety professionals to guard multiple sides of a work cell using only one PROTECTOR emitter/receiver pair. By reflecting the sensing field from the emitter around the perimeter’s corners to the receiver, the mirrors eliminate the need to use more than one safety light curtain.
Simple to mount on a standard protective column, the mirrors are available in several sizes ranging from 18.7″ to 74.8 to fit virtually any safeguarding requirement from robotic work cells to factory automation. A large reflector surface maximizes the infrared beam for efficient multi-sided detection of persons or other larger objects when they intrude into a protected area. Compared to traditional mechanical barriers, sliding gates, and pull-back restraints, this solution offers greater flexibility in design, while simplifying the machine’s setup, maintenance, and repair due to the light curtains providing unhindered access to it.
Because they are rated IP65/IP67, the new mirrors offer protection from low-pressure water jets and more substantial liquid ingress or immersion, making them ideal for industries subject to frequent wash downs or water spray, such as food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing.
