Press release date: February 1, 2014

SCHAUMBURG, IL – F3SJ Safety Light Curtains from OMRON Automation and Safety make selecting and installing a safety light curtain easier than ever – users need only specify the required configuration type and sensor length. F3SJ safety light curtains are available in finger protection, hand protection or hand/limb body protection configurations. Sensors with protective heights of up to nearly 2.5 meters are available for applications that involve large-sized workpieces.

The F3SJ safety light curtain is 6 mm thinner than previous models, and when used with the newly designed mounting brackets that allow beams to be aligned after the sensor is mounted, the total thickness is just 26 mm - a reduction of 19 mm. The low profile allows users to add safety to existing equipment without the safety light curtains getting in the way. F3SJ cables (0.3 m) have M12 connectors and a 5mm bending radius, and can be routed in literally any direction, for simplified wiring. Up to 4 sets, or 400 beams, can be connected in series, and with series connection cables up to 15 meters in length users can effectively safeguard a wide area.

All F3SJ safety light curtain system parameters can be set with intuitive software, and system status can be checked with a laptop computer. When a computer isn't the most convenient tool for the worksite, an optional Setting Console is a handy way to set parameters, monitor system status, and quickly troubleshoot errors.

The F3SJ can be used to configure a Category 4 safety circuit to suit a variety of safety needs, including options to maximize space efficiency and minimize set-up costs, reduce wiring time and costs, or even implement a multi-input safety circuit. Many other safety light curtains require a dedicated "muting controller" to benefit from muting functions, but it is built into the F3SJ and can be used by simply replacing the unit’s cap with an optional muting key cap.
