APPLICATIONS

2.1

Areas of Application

FGS safety light curtains can be used for point of operation, (Fig. 2), area (Fig. 3), perimeter and entry/exit (Fig. 4) safeguarding applications. Typical areas of application are: Presses in the metal, plastics, rubber, leather and stone industries Punches in the leather, metal textile and plastics processing industries Filter presses Trimming presses and cutters Processing machines and welding presses Assembly lines Revolving transfer machines Automatic assembly equipment Paper-cutting machines Fig. 2.

APPLICATIONS

2.2

Application Conditions

The machine or system control must be able to be stopped electrically. The FGS monitors the switching outputs for short circuits. The hazardous machine motion must be able to be stopped at all times. The installation of th FGS must adhere to the ANSI specification B11.19/E4.2.3.3.6, which states: A presence sensing device shall prevent the operator or others from reasonably reaching over, around, under or through the sensing field into the hazardous area. Auxiliary safeguarding may be required in conjunction with the FGS to accomplish this requirement. (Fig. 5). All pertinent regulations apply to installation and operation. Local authorities or the respective industry associations are available for technical safety questions.

Fig. 5. The devices must be mounted so that the following are not possible: reaching over, reaching under and standing behind defensive fields.

SYSTEM DESIGN

2.3

Corner Mirrors

The protective field between the FGS sender (FGSS) and the FGS receiver (FGSE) can be guided around corners using corner mirrors (Fig. 6). This allows the FGS to safeguard multiple sides of a hazardous area or point of operation.

Fig. 6. Hazardous area safeguarding with the FGS and a corner mirror.

System Design

The safety light curtain consists of a sender and a receiver (Fig. 7). Between these is the protective field, which is defined by the protected height and the scanning range. The length of each system is dependent on the protected height required. Synchronization between the sender and receiver takes place optically, i.e. electrical connection between sender and receiver is not necessary. The FGS is a modular construction. All optical and electrical components are housed in one sturdy, yet slim, profile.

THEORY OF OPERATION

Theory of Operation

4.2

Host/Guest Cascade (Daisy-Chaining)

When using the daisy-chain option, take notice of the following: Maximum total number of beams is 240: 14 mm resolution= 20 beams per every 150 mm 30 mm resolution = 10 beams per every 150 mm Maximum cable length between Host/Guest devices: 300 mm (shielded) Protected height increments: 150 mm, beginning with 300 mm Figs. 8 & 9 show two possible applications. The guest sensors, unlike the main sensor, has no indicator lights. They are not designed to be used as a stand alone device. The Host/Guest and Host/Guest/Guest sensors with accessories are already prepared for daisy-chaining. Note: Host/guest/guest top Interface Cable is limited to a max. length of 10 meters.

The infrared light pulses coded by the sender are sent to the receiver, which evaluates them. If an object, e.g. a finger or a hand (> 14 mm / > 30 mm), penetrates the protective field, both outputs of the FGS switch to stop the machine.

4.1

Mode of Operation

The FGS, does not require a separate control unit or "third box" when operating in guard-only mode with manual restart. If other functions should be required, e.g. PSDI mode, blanking, muting, and others, LCU (Universal Safety Interface) devices are available. The addition of an LCU makes possible a wide variety of applications.

In order to effectively prevent someone from standing behind the sensing fields, one or several FGS devices can be connected in a daisy-chain configuration. Any desired combination is possible up to 240 beams. For example, a host 1200 mm device with 14 mm resolution for finger protection, could be connected to a guest 300 mm device, with 30 mm resolution to prevent someone from standing between the protective field and the point of operation. When using the LCU-P with "mixed" daisy-chaining (e.g. host sensor with 14 mm resolution with a guest sensor with 30 mm resolution), the Dpt must be calculated using the larger (30 mm) resolution.

Safety Distance Point of Operation Top of tool

The FGS can be used in most environments (IP 65). Safety distances as well as an adequate protected height should be observed. Special attention should be given to the danger of reaching over, under, or standing behind sensing fields to reach the point of operation. This must be prevented mechanically or covered by another optical safety device (e.g. FGS daisy-chaining).

5.1.1 Safety Distance to Point of Operation


75 mm

Object Sensitivity S in inches (mm)

The safety device requires a certain minimum distance between the sensor and the point of operation. This ensures that the point of operation can be reached only after the hazardous motion has been stopped (Fig. 9). The safety distance (according to EN 775, 999 and 294) is dependent on the following: Machine stop time Response time of the safety device Resolution of the safety device Hand speed

To avoid the possibility of standing between the protective field and the point of operation, this distance must be maintained.

The minimum object sensitivity is stated on the product label. If beam blankouts are used, this opening should be added to the object sensitivity.

INSTALLATION

5.1.2. Distance to Reflective Surfaces Reflective surfaces that are present in the sensing field of the sender and receiver can cause reflections that may result in an object not being detected (Fig. 11). Therefore, a minimum distance (a) must be kept from the reflective objects to the optical axis (straightline connection FGSS/FGSE). The distance (a) is dependent on the distance between the sender and receiver unit, and on the alignment of the devices (Fig. 12).

Fig.11. Correct installation, correctly aligned. No optical short circuits. The object is already detected.

5.1.3. Multiple Safety Systems per Application When using two FGS systems per application, the systems should not be allowed to influence each other. As the distance between the FGSS and FGSE increases, the light beams diverge and their cross sections become larger. This could result in the light beams being received by the wrong receiver. Light beams should be received only by their corresponding receiver. In order to rule out the possibility that receivers will receive light from the wrong sender devices, their alignment must be taken into consideration during installation (Fig. 13).

INSTALLATION

Fig.14 . FGS mounting options: L-bracket, adjustable bracket and bracket with shock mount. (dimensions in mm)

5.2

Mechanical Installation Brackets with shock mounts can be used to reduce vibrations (e.g. on stamping presses). The brackets are attached to the sender and receiver using T-nuts. The Tnuts ride in grooves that run the full length of the light curtains on either side of the exit window. This allows for greater flexibility when mounting the light curtains.

Fixed L-brackets are included with the FGS. Optional adjustable brackets and adjustable brackets with shock mounts are available for mounting the sender and receiver units (Fig. 14). Fixed brackets can be used where no compensation for large mechanical tolerances is required. The adjustable brackets allow the sensors to be adjusted 2.

Connecting the FGS components is simple. Cable lengths up to 60 m are permitted (over-voltage protection for level 3 and higher (IEC 801), see Technical Data. The sender is connected to the machine control using a 5conductor cable (Fig. 15), the receiver using a 7-conductor cable (Fig. 17). The maximum wire cross section is 1.5 mm without jacket; 1 mm with jacket. All U.S. light curtains come standard with prewired mini-style quick-disconnect in the end-caps. The FGS requires +24 V DC ( 20%) power supplies, which are available from SICK.

5.3.2 Switching Outputs (Receiver) The output voltage UA of each channel depends on the supply voltage UV and the switching load and is at least UA = UV - 2V Both outputs OSSD1 and OSSD2 (OSSD = Output Signal Switching Device) are control reliable, actively monitored PNP solid state outputs. The outputs can catty a maximum of .05 Amps and are short circuit protected (Fig. 18). If the protected field is clear, the two outputs HIGH (active). An additional supply voltage must be applied to the outputs. Both output signals must be processed separately. They must not be connected in series or parallel.

Model Number

In the selection of an opto-electronic safety device, consider the following elements: Regulations Look up the regulations and standards applicable to the particular application. Local authorities and professional organizations can assist here. Operating Range Determine the required operating range for the application. The operating range corresponds with the width of the area to be safeguarded. The operating range should be chosen so that danger points are accessible only through the protective field. Corner Mirrors Use of corner mirrors offers the possibility to safeguard two or three sides. Use of corner mirrors will also reduce the maximum sensing range 0.5 m per mirror. Protected Height Determine the required protected height for the application. The protected height must be chosen so that danger points are accessible only through the protective field.

Please order the devices intended for daisy-chain applications (host sensor/guest sensor) separately.
