OPERATION
The Safety Light Curtain (SLC) is made up of one bar with transmitting
optical elements called Transmitter (TX) and one with receiving optical
elements called Receiver (RX). The photosensitive elements are regularly
scanned in sequence along all its length.
The operator has a multifunction pushbutton, which is used for the
following:
• TEST: If pressed during normal operation, it checks if all of the
system, comprising of the SLC and the machine is working.
Pressing the TEST button (opening the contact) basically simulates
the interruption of one or more safety beams and it is possible to
check that the machinery stops in the correct time and
configuration.
• RESTART: If pressed after an intervention by the SLC, (manual
reset condition) the system will be reset.
• ALIGNMENT: If the button is pressed when there is no power supply
to the SLC and then power is restored, whilst the button is being
pressed, it enters alignment mode, i.e. it provides an indication of the
alignment position of the unit by means of two yellow LEDs.
• OVERRIDE: (only present if the muting function is operational) if the
button is pressed within 5 seconds of switching on and it is kept
pressed for at least 5 seconds, the SLC will close the safety outputs
if the beams are interrupted. This condition stops as soon as the
button is released or automatically after 120 seconds.
PRECAUTIONS AND CRITERIA FOR INSTALLATION
The area where the SLC is to be installed must be compatible with the SLC
‘s technical specifications. The temperature of the environment, interference
caused by electromagnetic disturbance and sources of light and such like,
should be assessed a competent person. Please contact the manufacturer
for any information not contained in this manual.
2.1
CALCULATION OF THE MINIMUM DISTANCE FOR INSTALLATION
The safety distance ‘S’ must guarantee that the operator cannot reach the
danger zone before the machinery with the moving parts has stopped. The
formula to calculate the safety distance for multi-beam SLCs is as follows:
S=(K*T)+C
S
T
= safety distance.
= T1 + T2
where T1 = machinery’s response time in seconds.
T2 = barrier’s response time in seconds.
K
= approach speed of the body to the danger zone:
2000 mm/s for SBx models, 1600mm/s for SBx-K models
C
=8*(d-14)mm for SBx models, 850 mm for SBx-K models where d is the
minimum object that can be detected (35mm for SBx and 14mm for SBx-HR)
S
1. Automatic reset: After the SLC has detected an object, it returns to
normal operation as soon as the object is removed.
2. Manual reset: Normal operating mode is only restored after the object has
been removed and the reset button has been pressed.
To enable the muting function, the LMS muting indicator must be
connected when the SLC is not connected to the power supply, as
shown in section 6, and then the SLC’s power supply must be restored. To
disable the muting function, the LMS muting indicator must be
disconnected when the SLC is not connected to the power supply, and
then the SLC’s power supply restored.
Please remember that by enabling/disabling the muting function the
override function is automatically enabled/disabled.
The outputs are PNP type.
Should the load to be controlled have alternating current or require more
than 250mA consumption, it is necessary to use an external safety relay
module.

REFLECTING SURFACES
Be sure to install the SLC to minimize the effect of reflection from
nearby surfaces. Serious injuries can result if these effects are not
taken into consideration.
Should there be any reflecting surfaces, the distance must be sufficient to
safeguard against passive reflections.
The distance can be calculated following the table below:
where ‘D’ and ‘L’ are expressed in m

User’s manual
The transformer needed to power the system must comply with
standard EN 60742 (dual isolation), or with equivalent isolation,
e.g. VDE 0551, protective separation is required.
The control unit must be protected with an external fuse, whose
rated breaking current must be 1A.
The TEST/RESTART button must be located so that the
operator can see the protected area when restarting, testing or
overriding.
The external illuminated indicator for muting override enabled
must be located so that it can be seen from all sides of
operation.
Read the section on the muting function and its use before
locating the sensors for the activation of this function.
Check that the load does not absorb current in excess of
250mA for each OSSD; in this case a protection device will
intervene to limit the maximum current. If loads with currents in
excess of 250mA for each OSSD or alternating current are to
be controlled, please connect an external safety relay module.
Muting input A and Muting input B can be provided by
mechanical switch, photoelectric sensors, proximities switch,
with closed contact in the presence of the object to be detected.
The test connection must always be executed with a N.C.
button or connected to an automatic device, such as a PLC.

7 MUTING, OVERRIDE AND FLOATING BLANKING
FUNCTIONS
7.1
7.3
GENERAL INFORMATION ON THE THREE FUNCTIONS
The muting, override and floating blanking functions enable the
barrier (or a part of it) to be bypassed when it is working for
operational requirements. As required by current standards, the
barrier is provided with inputs for the activation of these functions. It
should however be remembered that these functions basically
override the system and they should therefore be used with due
care.
7.2
SB series
MUTING FUNCTION
As mentioned in the introduction, the muting function can be enabled with any
SLC by simply connecting the LMS muting indicator when the SLC is switched
off.
The presence of this indicator is recognised when the SLC is switched on. If
its presence is detected, the SLC will enable the muting function and if it is not
present the SLC will ignore any request for muting. It is important to note
that if the muting indicator is connected when the SLC is already
connected to the power supply, it will not be recognised and the muting
function will not be enabled. Once enabled, if the LMS muting indicator
develops a fault or is removed without first disconnecting the SLC’s power
supply, it will signal an error with the muting light, as described in section 10.
User’s manual
DESCRIPTION OF SINGLE MODULE MUTING AND MODULAR
MUTING
With this series of barriers it is possible to specify single module muting or
modular muting function at the moment of purchase.
There follows a brief description of these two types of muting.
7.3.1
DEFINITION OF MODULE.
Module means a portion of barrier whose size can contain the amount of
optical units per module defined in the table in section 6.
For example, a SBx-600 should be considered as 4 adjacent modules, each
containing 8 optical units for a total of 32 optical units, whereas a SBx-HR-300
should be considered as 7 adjacent modules, each containing 6 optical units
for a total of 42 optical units.
Various configurations can be achieved on request, according to
requirements.
The layout of the modules is illustrated below:
Umpteen module
4th module
To disable the muting function, the power supply must be turned on without
the LMS muting indicator connected.
In brief: this function, present on all SLC s, is enabled and disabled by means
of the following simple procedure:
3rd module
Disconnect the SLC’s power supply.
Connect the appropriate LMS muting indicator and the muting
sensors (see section 6)
- Restore the SLC’s power supply.
Bypass the muting function as follows.
- Disconnect the SLC’s power supply.
- Disconnect the LMS muting indicator and the muting sensors (see
section 6)
Restore the SLC’s power supply

7.3.2 SINGLE MODULE MUTING AND MODULAR MUTING
Single module muting enables only one module at a time to be made
transparent according to requirements, whereas modular muting makes it
possible to make the sum of two or more modules transparent, until even the
whole barrier has been bypassed.
Should a muting request be made for modules that are not managed when in
single module muting mode (for example bypassing of the 4th module with a
barrier that manages only three), the barrier will remain operational.
Please note that in single module muting is not possible to select the
module containing the optic ray placed in the opposite side opf
connector. In that case the muting function will not work properly.
Should a modular muting request also involve modules that are not managed
(for example muting of modules 1+2+3 with a barrier that manages only two),
the barrier will enter total muting mode
There follow the settings for the various muting modes.

The single module muting function must be requested in the
purchase order.
The single module muting function excludes the modular muting
function.
Take adequate care when installing the muting sensors to prevent undesired
requests for muting:
1. Wiring must be done correctly.
2. The muting sensors must recognise the whole length of the material (i.e.
pallets, vehicles...).
3. The sensors must be arranged so that the material is also recognised if it
has to be lifted for processing.
4. The effect of various transportation speeds in the field of muting on the
overall duration of muting must be taken into account, if any.
5. All the safety photocells and muting sensors must be arranged so that
the previous material clears the last muting sensor before the new
material reaches the first sensors

Example of conveyor protection installation, which must allow a box to pass through
but not a person. The SLC is connected to the control panel, and A1, A2, B1 and B2
are sensors used to enable muting. The contacts for these sensors are controlled on
the transceiver unit.
Sensors A1, A2, B1 and B2 can be optical, mechanical or proximity sensors etc., with
closed contact in the presence of the object to be detected.
The modular muting function with all modules activated is setted by
factory as default.

Where:
D: minimum dimension of package that can cross the SLC.
D1: distance between muting actuator B and SLC.
It MUST be as short as possible.
Minimum distance allowable depends on the speed of conveyour, the
response time of SLC and response time of muting actuator.
D2: Distance between muting actuator A and muting actuator B.
It must be > 250mm
It also depends on the conveyour speed:
dmax [cm]= v[m/s] * 3[s] * 100 > 25
It is necessary that this distance does not allow both sensors to be activated
and thus muting if a person goes through by accident.

The TEST/RESTART button must be located so that the operator can
see the protected area when restarting, testing or overriding.
The external illuminated indicator for muting override enabled must
be located so that it can be seen from all sides of operation.
If the muting sensors are installed very close to the SLC, care must
be taken that the receivers of the sensors are mounted on the
mirror side of the SLC in order to avoid interference.
The system is protected against the possibility of faults due to
damage to the wires; however we recommend laying the cables for
all connections in order to avoid damage to the connection cables.
TIMING CONSTRAINTS (muting function)
a) The muting request must take place with the correct timing
sequence: the Muting A input must be enabled first and then the
Muting B input. The request for the latter must be made within a
maximum of 3 seconds and not before 30 ms (TM) after enabling
Muting A input. Otherwise the muting function will not be enabled.
An incorrect sequence on the muting inputs will not start the muting
process.
b) Muting status can be maintained for an unlimited period of time as
long as the muting signals are valid.

OVERRIDE
This function makes it possible to override or bypass the system. It is
used to start up the machine after the material has interrupted one or
more of the SLC beams and to free the protected area from any
material that is present in front of the SLC,
If a pallet has stopped in front of the protected area, it will not be
possible to restart the conveyor belt because the SLC detects one or
more beams have been interrupted and therefore will not close the
outputs; therefore the protected area cannot be cleared.
However, it can be cleared if the override function is enabled.
This function can be used for all SLCs with the LMS muting indicator
connected, as described in section 3.
7.6.1
ENABLING THE OVERRIDE FUNCTION
• Switch the appliance off.
• Switch it on again and press the test/restart button within 5
seconds, keeping it pressed for at least 5 seconds.
• The override function is now enabled. The LMS muting
indicator flashes to signal the exclusion of the SLC.
• The maximum duration of the override function is 120 seconds,
after which the SLC is reset, even if the button is kept pressed.
Naturally, if the button is released before this, the override
function will terminate immediately.

FLOATING BLANKING FUNCTION
7.7.1
Definition of “Blanking” and of “Floating blanking”
For Blanking we mean the permanent masking of a determined number
of optical elements in a well-defined part of the sensitive zone of the
barrier. This can be caused for example from a part of the machine that
permanently obscures a part of the barrier. To allow to the connected
machine to operate in safety condition the barrier must recognize the
masking object as a conventional situation and lock the machine as soon
as other optical are obscured, for example by a hand or a body of a
person.
The blanking function is a feature that allows the interdiction of some
rays of the barrier without locking the machine.
If the object that covers the optical is free of moving lengthwise on the
barrier optical range, it masks different optical during its movement. In this
case we talk about floating blanking and the barrier functionality that allows
this movement is the floating blanking function.
blanking
floating
blanking
Most of cases the object covers more than one optical. The maximum
number of optical elements that can be simultaneous masked is limited (for
safety reasons) and depends on the total number of optical elements in the
barrier.
The masked optical can't exceed 30% of the total optical elements, and
anyway can’t be more of 20 optical masked.
Examples:
1) total optical elements
= 24
optical elements available for Blanking = 7
33
34
SB series
User’s manual
The zone that can be masked will have max 7 optical elements.
2) total optical elements
= 105
optical elements available for Blanking = 31
SB series
User’s manual
In the case which It’s sure that the object will cover just one optical more
of the starting position it’s useful that the barriers allows just the +1. This is
the case for example of an object that during its rotation covers one more
optical.
The zone that can be masked will have max 20 optical elements, even
if 30% of the total would be 31.
7.7.2
Alternative Blanking possibility
To set the blanking function is necessary that the barrier recognises the
object length as explained in above paragraph.
In case of floating blanking the number of covered optics depends, besides
to the object length, also to the starting position of the object.
To cover an optical is necessary to completely cover his beam; the beams
appear as equally spaced cylinders as shown in the following figure.
The following table resume all the selectable blanking modes.
beams
Consider as example an object able to cover three optical beams: the initial
number of covered optical depends from its starting position.
starting position
at 3 covered optical
In similar cases is better set the barrier in the “+1 floating blanking“
mode.
If the object doesn’t moving the barrier can be set in the “fixed blanking”
mode, if no blanking is needed it can be set in the “no blanking” mode.
The blanking mode can be selected setting the dip switches on the receiver
motherboard (see paragraph operating procedures).
starting position
at 2 covered optical
During the object movement could happen that (in some moments) in the
first case only 2 optical are obscured, in the second case instead there are
three optical covered. So the barrier must allow a number of covered
optical equal to the starting number -1 in the first case and +1 in the
second case. Since the starting positions of the object can be different the
barrier must allow the +1 and -1 at the same time. This functionality is
called “±1 floating blanking“.

The resolution (the minimal dimension of an object placed across the
curtain that cause the machine shutdown) depends from the selected
blanking mode: it decreases increasing the “optic tolerance” (the +1 or the
±1) embodied from the type of blanking.
In a standard resolution barrier (ST) the resolution is halved (the object
dimension is doubled) respect to a high resolution (HR) because the
distance between the optical elements is double (7 mm for a HR, 14 mm
for a ST).

Blanking recording procedure

LED DIAGNOSTICS
To record the object, proceed as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Turn the power of the barrier off,
Position the object to determine the Blanking area.
Connect Muting input A to the 24Vdc.
Make sure that the contact of the Test/Reset button is closed.
Power the barrier again.
Now connect the 24Vdc to the MUTING B input.
The recording of the object is indicated by the yellow LOWER led
blinking, which also confirms the successful recording of the Blanking.
If the led doesn't blink in this phase it means that the object activates
over 30% of optical elements present
Disconnect the Muting A and Muting B inputs from the +24Vdc.
Make sure the barrier is functioning correctly in the Blanking
configuration, with the yellow LOWER led blinking.
The optical element opposite the connector cannot be used in the
Blanking function because it is the optical element for the synchronism
between the two barriers.
If a Blanking recording is done without the object, and therefore with the
beams free, at the end of the operations the yellow LOWER led won't blink
because all of the barrier is active; this is a simple way to reset the
Blanking recording.
If the object recorded is removed for some reason, or occupies a number
of optical elements which is lower with respect to the recording situation,
the barrier will indicate an anomaly and the outputs will be de-energized.
To indicate this particular condition, the LOWER (yellow) and BREAK (red)
led blink. Solve this error by pressing and releasing the TEST/RESET
button on the condition that the object has been replaced.

Check that the SLC remains blocked by inserting an object that
intercepts the beams along the entire length of the protected
area.
Check via the opening of the TEST/RESTART contact, that the
safety outputs open (red LED lit and controller machinery
stopped).
Check that it is not possible to access the danger areas of the
machinery from any area that is not protected and that the
minimum distance between the dangerous areas and the SLC is
no less than that calculated as per formulas 4.1 and 4.2.)
Check that it is not possible for a person to get between the SLC
and the dangerous parts of the machinery.
Check that there is no external damage to the SLC and/or to the
external electrical connections.
Repeat checks 1 and 2 daily.
Repeat checks 1 to 5 every 6 month maximum.
The interval between the above actions can be shorter depends on the
individual application and the environmental conditions where the SLC is
used.
