Pilz: Safety Laser Scanner
The new light grids PSENopt II are the world’s type 3 light grids. They enable applications from the category performance level d (PL d). The new light grid type thereby closes the “type gap” of the revised version of IEC 61496-1.
With PSENopt II it is no longer necessary to switch to type 4 when PL d is required. The level that precisely matches the safety requirement can now be implemented with the new light grids. This saves costs in the end as overdimensioning is not necessary.
