Resolution of detection light screens
ReeR Safety measurement light curtains are available in different beam distances. The number of beams and the beam distance determine the precision. The Micron-series has a measurement light curtains with a resolution of 5 mm to detect small objects. ReeR Safety detection light screens with an analogue output are available in 0/10 VDC or 4/20 mA. MI B-series has RS485. Read more about Micron measurement light curtain.
Safety PLC - Safety controller- ReeR Safety
Set up a safety system yourself
ReeR Safety Mosaic safety PLC is modular and programmable for securing machines and installations. The safety system is suitable for monitoring various safety sensors such as safety light curtains, laser scanners, photocells, mechanical limit switches, mats, emergency-off buttons and two-hand operation in one flexible system.
Switch components with Mosaic
When composing your safety system and when using ReeR Safety Mosaic, you are not 'stuck' to ReeR Safety. Other safety components can also be connected to ReeR mosaic. The system consists of a master module ReeR Safety Mosaic M1 and a maximum of 7 expansion modules that are connected via the bus at the rear. Read more about safety PLC Mosaic.
Safety PLC - Safety controller- ReeR Mosaic
Application example - Securing robot cell with light curtains - ReeR Safety
A robot cell and conveyor belt with in- and outgoing fork-lift trucks
A robot cell stacks a pallet from a conveyor belt. The pallets are then picked up and moved by a forklift truck. The forklift trucks enter the secured area and then leave the secured area. In addition to ReeR Safety light screens, emergency stop buttons, fence protection with ReeR Safety Magnus RFID switches are also used.
Software - Safety PLC - ReeR Safety
The Safety PLC Mosaic from ReeR Safety is easy to program with the supplied software. The image on the right shows the basic screen of a security system entered in the MSD software. The software works through 'drag and drop'. All different parts can be dragged and moved. Read more about the safety PLC from ReeR Safety.
Mosaic M1S module with 4 OSSD outputs - ReeR Safety
The Mosaic M1 main module of the safety PLC - Mosaic has undergone a transformation. Both visually and technically, the new Mosaic M1S is an improvement over its predecessor. The labels have been replaced with laser engraved information on the outside of the modules. The gray modules have been given a new look: black!
New features include four OSSD safety outputs (Pld) or two pairs of OSSD outputs (Ple) and the ability to process 128 logical operators, making security applications more powerful. In addition to the Mosaic M1S module, an I/O extension module has been added to the range. The new MI8O4 provides 4 OSSD outputs. Read more about the safety controller from ReeR
Safe inductive sensors
The safe inductive sensors from ReeR Safety can be used for door detection, gearwheel detection for speed monitoring, shaft position detection, end stop robot cells and positioning machines. Machines and robots can be secured to a safety class of PLd or SIL2 with the use of these sensors.
Connect the safe inductive sensor to safety relay
The two safe OSSD outputs can be connected directly to the safety relay "AD SR1" or to the safety PLC "Mosaïc M1". The inductive fail safe sensors all have a degree of protection of IP65 and IP67. There is one version with a protection rating of IP69K that is suitable for use in the pharmaceutical and food industry. The inductive sensors are available in M12, M18, M30 or a block form 40 x 40 mm. Read more about safe inductive sensors.
RFID Switches - ReeR Safety
For protection of doors, fences and valves
ReeR Safety Magnus RFID safety switches have a safety level of up to PL e / SIL3 by unique coding. The safety switches from ReeR are available in unique coding, individually coded and actuator coded sensor. Read more about RFID safety switches.
IP69K RFID safety sensor
The non-contact safety sensors come in a watertight housing with a sealing of IP67 and IP69K. The sensors can withstand aggressive substances such as cleaning products, a requirement often expressed by the food industry. It is not difficult to install the Magnus RFID in existing equipment due to its modest size, easy assembly and simple operation.
Why is RFID from ReeR Safety Reliable?
The non-contact safety sensors type Magnus from ReeR Safety work on the basis of RFID. RFID stands for Radio-Frequency Identification. The transmitter transmits coded radio waves that are received by the receiver. Because the signal is unique, the system can not be manipulated. The communication transfer can not be sabotaged, since radio waves can not be simulated easily, something that is possible with, for example, a magnetic sensor.
The 'uniquely coded' ReeR Safety Magnus RFID enables a safety level up to PLe/SIL3. Even when the contactless safety sensors are connected in series. The transmitter and receiver are coded with a unique code so that they form a unique set that does not work in combination with other transmitters / receivers. This makes the system safe and reliable.
Three coding options
The receiver is permanently connected to the transmitter. Change is not possible.
The receiver is programmed via a teach-in principle. This process can be repeated, but not unlimited. Once used and re-done, coding can not be reused.
The receiver is free and not specifically assigned to a transmitter (a receiver can work with different channels).
Safety system - Safelock - ReeR Safety
The Safelock safety system from ReeR Safety is a safety switch that is used to protect personnel when opening doors and gates that give access to hazardous areas. The safety switch works by monitoring and interrupting the safety circuit during hazardous scenarios. The Safelock safety system locks and unlocks access to hazardous areas and guarantees safety until the danger has passed.
The SLK-M switch is activated by a spring and unlocking takes place by applying voltage / current. The SLK-E works in reverse. The safety switch is activated by voltage and released by activating a spring.
Safety photocells ILIONN - IL10 - IL20 - ReeR Safety
ReeR safety photocells can be installed or installed in very compact spaces, thanks to the compact size of the security system, while the possibility to use more photocells offers the maximum flexibility when positioning the protective beams.
Mosaic security controller
The photocells must be connected to the control unit, for example: standard AU SX or AU SXM control unit with muting or Mosaic for forming a security system that can consist of 1, 2, 3 or 4 photocells with a single beam. In case of connection with Mosaic safety controller, the number of photocells depends on the configuration of the security system.
Speed monitoring relay - ReeR Safety
When the number of revolutions of a machine becomes too high, a dangerous situation can arise and the safety of man and machine is jeopardized. To protect machines and persons against unsafe situations and to comply with the set standards, a speed monitoring relay is used.
Encoders and inductive sensors
The speed can be monitored using sensors such as encoders or inductive sensors. There are also speed monitoring relays that are connected directly to a motor without the intervention of sensors. Read more about speed monitoring with speed monitoring relays.
