Safety light curtains

Safety light curtains protect against unauthorized access of people to rooms and/or machines. A safety light curtain consists of at least two components, a transmitter and a receiver. It is possible to connect several light curtains to each other and to make use of a master/slave setup (cascade).

Safety position switches

Safety position switches check the position of, for example, valves or valves or confirm the presence of an object (s). The difference with regular position switches is that safety position switches meet the standards for a safe working environment.
