Banner Engineering, a provider of technology for industrial automation, today announced the release of the SGS safety grid system for safeguarding equipment access points and long-range perimeters.
SGS Safety Grid Systems are Type 4 safety devices that create a grid of two, three, or four light beams over a protective height of 500, 800, 900, or 1200 mm. They protect personnel from injury and equipment from damage by detecting a body or torso entering a hazardous area.
These multiple beam safety light devices operate in two-piece matched systems. Emitter/Receiver systems are capable of safeguarding over very long distances and are available in models with a range of up to 60 meters. Active/Passive systems require wiring only on the active side of the deployment, simplifying installation and reducing costs.
Models featuring integral muting enable a direct connection between the system and muting sensors. Material can enter or exit a hazardous area without requiring an external module or controller to mute the safety grid. Muting arm kits specifically designed for these systems are available with pre-mounted sensors and hardware to simplify setup and speed up deployment in these applications.
SGS Safety Grid Systems are certified for use in North America and the European Union. They feature built-in DIP switches for system configuration without software or a PC. An on-board alignment lamp and LED indicators simplify alignment and troubleshooting.
