Point of Operation Control (POC) safety light curtains are designed for finger, hand, and arm detection. These light curtains are placed close to the hazard, at the point of operation where personnel may frequently interact with the machine.
Our Bulletin 450L GuardShield™ POC safety light curtains are unlike traditional safety light curtains, which are based on separate transmitter and receiver units. Patented technology allows each transceiver to be used as a transmitter or receiver via an innovative plug-in module. The 450L-B is the basic model with on/off functionality. The advanced 450L-E model features integrated laser alignment, cascading, blanking, and integrated muting.
Our Bulletin 440L Guardshield™ POC Type 4 safety light curtains are applied in applications where a formal risk assessment has determined that the hazard poses a moderate to high risk of operator injury.
Our Bulletin 445L Guardshield™ POC Type 4 Micro 400 safety light curtains are economical three-box safety light curtains in a small housing. Designed for use in benign industrial environments (IP54), this light-duty system is targeted to the semi-conductor, micro electronic and small assembly machine markets. We also offer these light curtains in cascadable configurations and in IP69K enclosures. The Micro 400 requires a dedicated controller such as the MSR41 for ON/OFF applications or the MSR42 for advanced safety functionality.
Our Bulletin 445L GuardShield™ POC Type 4 Safe 4 safety light curtains are economical two-box safety light curtains with ON/OFF functionality.

Visible laser beams are activated by touching the laser at the finger symbol on the front face of the light curtains.
