Keyence introduced its new GL-S safety light curtain. This addition to the GL series offers a versatile solution for applications where space constraints are a major factor. The GL-S also provides increased ease of use and simplified installation compared to conventional safety light curtains.Product7_IN

Available in both front and side view models, these two designs allow the GL-S to be seamlessly installed into equipment with tight dimension restrictions. The GL-S offers a 50% reduction in overall size when compared to conventional light curtains. This reduced footprint enables the GL-S to occupy the least amount of space necessary while still delivering the highest level protection (Type 4).

Highly visible, three color status indicators allow the curtain’s operational status to be easily seen from any angle. These indicators can be externally controlled to illuminate green, red, or orange in order to indicate work steps, thereby reducing the need for additional equipment. The GL-S also offers a built-in muting function, external device monitoring, and interlock function, thus eliminating the need for external devices.

Keyence’s Edge-to-Edge Protection eliminates the need for additional guarding, even on L-shape and U-shape installations. Built-in mounting brackets significantly reduce installation time, while selectable wiring options make integration of the GL-S simple and straightforward. The Keyence One-line System offers up to a 77% reduction in wiring, making it the optimal choice where wiring and space restrictions are an issue.
