Omron provides safety light
curtains to solve your optical guarding needs. From compact
models designed for machine locations where space is tight, to
larger, robust light curtains powerful enough to guard large

MiniSafe® MS4800 Series Light Curtains
The MS4800 light curtain family is an all-purpose light
curtain available in three distinct versions. These versions are
identified as the MS4800A, MS4800B and the MS4800S. The MS4800A
and MS4800B feature set (configuration) can be changed through
the use of an external device called the Programming Diagnostic
Module (PDM) and on the MS4800S through selector switches.
Economical Safety Light Curtains with No Dead Zone
Space-saving slim profile, measures just 30 W x 24 D mm; easily
fits into existing equipment. Two new tools simplify
setting parameters and checking the system status: "SD Manager"
PC setting support software and hand-held setting console.
On-board muting functionality enabled by a low-cost optional key
cap requires no external muting controller. Blanking
function disables specific beams of the Safety Light Curtain.
A warning zone can be set to alert people before they enter a
danger zone using single or series-connected units when
horizontally mounted. Mounting brackets (included) allow
easy tightening of mounting screws and aligning of the beams
after the sensor is mounted.
Light Safety Scanner
OptoShield has a safety range up to 4 m and is configured via
easy-to-use software. Intrusion indicators immediately
identify where the safety zone is encroached. Easy-to-read
system status and diagnostics. Two separate detection sets
(each with one safety zone and one warning zone) can be
externally selected. Auxiliary outputs for warning zones.
Operating Modes: Automatic Start, Start Interlock, Start/Restart
Interlock. Response time as fast as 80 ms.

System for Hydraulic Press Brakes
New LCD menu-driven operator interface panel with magnetic base
provides for easy menu-driven programming, fast and easy setup,
real-time operational mode status, password protection for
supervisory control, and protective field status. Allows
tools to close at high speed, increasing productivity.
Controls the point of operation through closed-loop monitoring
of speed, direction, position and stopping distance of the ram.
Comprehensive operator protection at close proximity to the
point of operation
Dual flat bands of continuous laser light detect obstructions as
small as 4 mm while still being vibration tolerant. See
