Guardscan Light Curtaiins

Guardscan Light Curtains have been assuring the safety of operators working at or near dangerous machinery for many years. The light curtain system works by creating an infrared detection zone across the danger area such that any intrusion into the zone results in a stop signal being sent to the machine and the danger being removed. Light curtains are an important tool in safeguarding hazardous machinery and have many advantages to the user in allowing excellent visibility of the working operation and speedy access to equipment which in turn promotes efficient working practice. All Guardscan light curtain systems in the range are designed to meet the requirements of EN13849-1 2008. The range of light curtains provides solutions to practically all machine guarding applications.

Tapeswitch manufacture a Safety Control Unit specifically designed for use with our Guardscan Light Curtains. Further information about this can be found on our Light Curtain Control Unit page.

Blueview Alignment System

The Blueview alignment system from Tapeswitch Ltd. is a simple but very effective way of allowing Guardscan light curtains to be optically aligned. In order to work reliably the emitter and receiver units of all infrared safety light curtains need to be optically aligned correctly.
