Robot Safety 101: Light Curtains

 

Light curtains are an integral safety feature for any robotic system. They work by creating an invisible plane of light in a 2 dimensional area. If this plane of light is broken, the robotic systems brakes are activated and the workcell shuts down. This helps prevent injury to the workers.  Light curtains provide an invaluable element to any robotic workcell. Light curtains provide a buffer between workers and the robot arm and system. 

The robot arm and components then needs to be reset and restarted once the light curtains are clear. It is easy to see why this is an important element of safety in many robotic workcells and robotic systems is light curtains. Lights curtains keep workers at a safe distance from the robot arm and system components.
