Safety laser scanners are compact devices that are used for monitoring the path travelled by moving vehicles as well as the zone guarding production equipment areas. A safety laser scanner has configurable and switchable field sets. It detects a person who approaches within the range of any hazardous movement.
Hence, if the warning field is accessed, a controlled barking system of the hazardous movement is activated, which helps stop the movement towards the protected field. In situations where it is difficult to watch in danger zones, safety laser scanners detect the location of a person and alert him/her to stop.
Safety laser scanners use the ‘time of flight’ principle to measure the distance. They calculate the time taken for a pulse emitted beam to reflect back from any object that is detected within the range of the safety laser scanner. The user can easily configure the safety laser scanner into simple or complex warning zones as per the application requirements.
