Features

Robust

The inner unit is fully protected with a thick metal case. Impact between the workpiece and the sensor is prevented by narrowing and deepening the exposed area of the sensing surface.

Robust

■Thick and robust housing resistant to impact
The SF4B-G series light curtain is enclosed in a 5 mm (0.197 in) thick robust metal case, protecting the workpiece from various types of impact, such as collision or being stepped on.

Thick and robust housing resistant to impact

■No guard needed
The robust light curtain can be used without an L-shape or U-shape guard, reducing installation and maintenance.

No guard needed

■Fully protected sensing surface
The sensing surface is fully protected by narrowing and deepening the exposed area of the sensing surface.

Fully protected sensing surface

■IP67 protected structure
The seamless structure protects the sensor from being exposed to water.

Impactfriendly structure

The cylindrical frame construction allows mechanical shock to dissipate upon impact, minimizing severe damage in the event of a collision.
This unique design minimizes the possibility of beam axis misalignment and provides a safer workplace.

Impactfriendly structure

■Round design minimizes damage to the workpiece
The case is designed so that shock upon impact is dissipated alleviating potential damage to the workpiece in the event of a collision.

Round design minimizes damage to the workpiece

■Workpiece not contaminated with paint
The body has a alumite-treated case whereby paint does not stick to the workpiece in the event of a collision.

■Mounting bracket for simple & secure installation
The light curtain and the mounting bracket are firmly secured with just two bolts. The light curtain is situated in the center of the mounting bracket, preventing beam axis deviation. The dimple structure makes alignment easy to adjust.

Mounting bracket for simple & secure installation

■Enables series connection with standard type possible
The mating cable is standard, allowing the robust and standard types to be connected in series. The mating cable can be removed or attached while the mounting bracket is fixed, allowing easy maintenance.

Enables series connection with standard type possible

■Black and yellow caution tape
Black and yellow caution tapeBlack and yellow striped attention tape is attached to the side of the light curtain, alerting workers to use caution. Hazardous openings are very obvious.

■Differences from standard type

The Robust type SF4B-□G<V2> is different from the standard type SF4B-□<V2> in the following ways:

・Sensing width (protective height) ・Profile ・Net weight ・Mounting bracket
・Large alignment tool ・Noncompliant with Japanese and Korean press standard
・Noncompliant with Korean regulations

Other specifications, input/output circuits, and options are common to the standard type.
For details of specifi cations etc., refer to the SF4B Ver.2 series.
