IP65 safety light curtains ELC 100

The ELC 100 safety light curtains from Leuze focus on the essence of the point of operation safeguarding. These robust devices with an operating range of up to 6 meters, are perfect for cost-effective machine design and applications. Also, you will easily integrate and install them.

Safety light curtains for a cost-efficient machine design

The ELC 100 safety light curtains from Leuze provide efficient protection of dangerous points of operation and offer a reliable safety solution at an attractive price. These robust devices can be flexibly integrated into the machines and easily installed. The protective field lengths of up to 1.5 m and the resolutions of 17 mm (operating range 3 m) and 30 mm (operating range 6 m) for finger and hand detection, ensure short safety distances and thereby enable a compact system design.

The optimized design makes the ELC 100 series especially resistant to physical shock and vibration. Thus, you can use it on machines that are subject to strong accelerations or vibrations, e.g., presses.

safety light curtains ELC 100 Leuze
  • You are guaranteed to receive reliable safety technology of proven quality at an attractive price.
  • You can flexibly integrate the ELC 100s in the machine design with little effort.
  • The simple mechanical and electrical design enables you quick installation of the safety light curtains. No configuration is required.
  • The multi-level alignment display ensures you fast and optimum alignment of the ELC 100s without prior knowledge.
  • All-metal housing ensures reliable operation of the ELC 100s and extreme shock- and vibration resistance.

Highlights of the ELC safety light curtains

The multi-level alignment display especially simplifies the ELC 100 commissioning. Even rough alignments are reliably displayed. Well-visible, bright LEDs, allow monitoring of the alignment result from the transmitter. Thus, the optimal setup is achieved quickly, saving time and money during commissioning.

The ELC 100s enable you easy and flexible integration into the machine design. Flexible cable routing in all directions is provided with the specially designed housing. On this account, the cable is always optimally routed into the machine and protected at the same time.

As in these safety light curtains the protective field extends to the edges of the housing, you can flush-mount them without dead zones. No additional safeguarding measures are required.

The swivel function of the robust supports in the grooves on both sides of the ELC 100s, facilitates quick alignment of the curtains. For applications with short operating ranges that do not require alignment, the already included sliding blocks are used, which further reduces your costs.

The M12 connector is easily accessible via the cable. The 4-pin version for voltage and OSSDs greatly simplifies the connection of the curtains. No configuration is required, and the connection cables need no shielding. These are the key reasons for simple, fast, and economical installation.

The robust all-metal housings protect the front screen. The intelligent beam evaluation with object tracking allows the curtains to operate reliably and avoid unnecessary shutdowns even in demanding environments, e.g., in the presence of chips or sparks.

The optimized design also makes the ELC 100s especially resistant to physical shock and vibration. You can thus use them on machines that are subject to strong accelerations or vibrations, such as presses.

Provide effective safeguarding in different applications

Safety light curtains ELC 100: Point of operation guarding

Point of operation guarding

Requirement:

The point of operation at your machine or system needs to be guarded by an electro-sensitive protective device. The distance between the protective device and point of operation should be as small as possible.

Solution:

The ELC 100 safety light curtains with resolutions of 17 mm and 30 mm provides you reliable finger and hand detection. This allows small safety distances between the safety sensor and the point of operation.

Access guarding with short safety distances

Requirement:

Access to dangerous areas on your machines and systems needs to be secured with optoelectronic safety sensors. For a compact system design, the safety sensors should be installed as close to the dangerous area as possible.

Solution:

The ELC 100 safety light curtains, with protective field lengths of up to 1.5 m, safeguard access points to machines and systems. The resolutions of 17 mm and 30 mm for finger and hand detection, ensure short safety distances and thereby enable a compact system design.

Safety light curtains ELC 100: Point of operation guarding on presses

Point of operation guarding on presses

Requirement:

The points of operation on presses need to be safeguarded by safety light curtains. These must withstand physical impacts and continuous vibrations.

Solution:

The ELC 100s with resolutions of 17 mm and 30 mm provide reliable finger and hand detection. This allows small safety distances between the safety sensor and the point of operation. With a shock resistance of 400 m/s2, these safety light curtains are designed for reliable operation even in the presence of constant and intense mechanical shocks.
