Implementing safety-light safety curtains within your application for safeguarding employees from dangerous machinery.
The purpose of safety light curtains is to provide flexibility and ensure machinery setup, maintenance, and repair are simple and more efficient than any other traditional guarding systems, which include mechanical barriers and sliding gates.
In addition to this, a safety light curtain's reaction time is just a fraction of a second, compared to a traditional barrier or a similar component.
Safety light curtains are a versatile solution that can be implemented in a variety of applications such as packaging machines, process machinery, automation warehouses, and much more.

Your Safe, Complete Solution with PILZ Safety Light Curtains
With PILZ safety light curtains PSENopt and PSENopt II, you can safely, efficiently, and economically protect your staff and capital goods. The PSENopt series is an invisible infra-red protected field that protects the danger zones and enables optimum access protection. This is ideal for production processes requiring active intervention.
PSENopt High Flexibility for Individual Requirements
The PSENopt series of safety light curtains is ideal for machines where intervention is required as part of each cycle. They can be used for applications up to PL c (Type 2) and PL e (Type 4).
Furthermore, to the Basic light curtains, the PSENopt Advanced safety light curtains offer expanded functionalities such as muting, blanking, and cascading. PILZ slimline safety light curtains PSENopt slim have an integrated cascading function and are available for space-critical applications.
PSENopt II Maximum Safety in Rugged Industrial Environments
PSENopt II safety light curtains are ideal for use in a rugged everyday industrial environment, even in extreme cold (up to -25°C) or dusty production environments. They provide flexible application options, fast installation, absence of dead zones, and shock resistance of 50g.
The Type 3 safety light curtains are suitable specifically for applications up to PL d, and there are also Type 4 versions available. The 5-pin connector connects them directly to the decentralised modules PDP67, and coding enables the physical positioning of the light curtain sensors close to one another.
