deTec4 / Safety light beam device


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

deTec4 – Hightech, focused on the essentials. The safety light curtain protects persons at machines on a top safety level. In modular steps of 150 mm height a protective field height of 300 mm up to an impressive 2,100 mm are covered. The shape of the profile allows an unmatched quick and intuitive installation (smooth alignment +/- 15°, free orientation and positioning of the universal brackets at any spot, end cap as end stop). deTec4 gives you a blind-zone-free protection over the entire profile length and it is extremely compact. That allows a trouble-free integration – as well in existing machines.
