Safety light curtains are optical devices, which use one or more light beams to create an intangible controlled area. The main features of ReeR's safety light curtains are their safety level, the protected height, the maximum distance between the emitter and the receiver, the response time in interruption situations, and the resolution of the curtain when an object is placed in the controlled area.
ReeR's range of safety light curtains includes the following models:
- MJB 1 Model;
- MJB 2 Model;
- MJB 3 Model;
- MJB 4 Model.
Watertight enclosuresÂ enable safety light curtains to be used in more hostile work environments, such as in environments where there is exposure to water and steam.
For the EOS4 and EOS2 safety light curtains, ReeR offers versions with and without a heating system and IP 69K protection range. For the safety light curtains in the ADMIRAL and VISION families, there are also versions with and without a heating system; however, the protection range is IP 67.
The brand offers the following models:
MOSAIC is a modular and configurable safety controller, used to protect machines or installations. By using MOSAIC, it is possible to control several safety sensors and command devices, such as: safety light curtains, safety scanners, photocells, emergency stop, among others. In this way, it is possible to reduce the number of components of a safety control system and facilitate the electrification of the electric switchboards. In addition, MOSAIC is flexible to the point where it is possible to create logical programmes, in an easy and intuitive way, through the MSD software (MOSAIC Safety Designer). This software is free, being included in the acquisition of the controller.
The main characteristics of MOSAIC are:
The MOSAIC I/O numbers can be increased according to the needs of each application, using the expansion modules available for this controller:
In addition, ReeR also offers the following communication modules:
- MBP â€“ Profibus DP
- MBD â€“ DeviceNET
- MBC â€“ CANopen
TheÂ interfaces andÂ safetyÂ relaysÂ are dedicated equipment which are found between the safety light curtains (for example) and the control circuits of a machine or a particular installation.
Reer provides the following interfaces and safety relays:
Interface modules for safety light curtains:
Safety relays for safety light curtains with EDM:
Interface modules for emergency buttons and safety switches:
Interface modules for bimanual control:
Interface modules for ILION and ULISSE photocells:
TheÂ PHAROÂ safety scanner is a protection device used for the prevention of accidents and for the protection of operators exposed to hazardous situations caused by industrial machines. This equipment can also be used in Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs) in order to avoid collisions.
The PHARO safety scanner does not require an external control unit, since all safety functions are performed by the equipment itself. In addition, it allows the creation of programmable protected areas of various sizes and shapes, giving it versatility and making it an excellent solution for the most demanding applications.
ReerÂ measurement sensorsÂ are used in industrial applications where it is necessary to detect, measure and recognise objects in order to provide this information in real time to a PLC or PC. ReeR offers the following ranges:
In the Micron range, communication modules are available which allow connection to the following protocols: Profibus DP, DeviceNET, CANopen, Ethernet, EtherCAT, PROFINET IP, Modbus RTU, Modbus USB, TCP / IP and USB.
Contactless safety sensorsÂ are used to monitor the position of sliding, hinged or removable devices. Included in this category areÂ MAGNUS MGÂ magnetic safety sensors (compact, rectangular or cylindrical equipment with IP67 protection and a switching distance of 3 to 10mm) and the RFID safety switches of theÂ MAGNUSÂ RFID series (which enable 3 coding levels according to the requirements of each application).
PhotocellsÂ are compact and flexible equipment that can be integrated with other photocells and in small spaces.
Reer offers the following photocell models:
