System Overview
Instruction Manual
1. System Overview
1.1 Introduction
Electrical connections are made through M12 (or Euro-style)
quick-disconnects. Some emitter models have a 5-pin connector
for power and the Test function. Other emitters and all receivers
have an 8-pin connector for power, ground, inputs and outputs.
The Banner EZ-SCREEN provides a redundant, microprocessorcontrolled, opposed-mode optoelectronic “curtain of light,” or
“safety light screen.” It is generally used as a point-of-operation
safeguarding device, and is suited to safeguard a variety of
machinery.
Functions such as Trip/Latch select, Display Invert, Cascading,
Fixed Blanking, Reduced Resolution (Floating Blanking), Scan
Code select, and External Device Monitoring are described in
Section 1.4. All models require a supply voltage of +24V dc ±15%.
See Section 2.4 for interfacing solutions.
EZ-SCREEN is extensively FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects
Analysis) tested to establish an extremely high degree of
confidence that when properly installed, no system component
will (even if it should fail) cause a failure to danger.
Both emitter and receiver feature 7-segment Diagnostic Displays
and individual LEDs to provide continuous indication of the
EZ-SCREEN’s operating status, configuration and error conditions.
See Section 1.4.7 for more information.
In typical operation, if any part of an operator’s body (or any
opaque object) of more than a pre-determined cross section
is detected, the OSSD solid-state safety outputs will turn off.
These safety outputs are connected to the guarded machine’s
Final Switching Devices (FSDs) that control the primary control
elements (MPCEs) which immediately stop the motion of the
guarded machine.
This manual contains numerous WARNING and CAUTION
statements. WARNINGS refer to situations that could lead to
significant or serious personal injury or death. CAUTIONS refer
to situations that could lead to slight personal injury or potential
damage to equipment.
The OSSD (Output Signal Switching Device) safety outputs
are capable of performing a “handshake” communication with
the Muteable Safety Stop Interface (MSSI) or Universal Safety
Stop Interface (USSI) found on other Banner Engineering safety
products. The handshake protocol is satisfied by any Banner
Engineering Safety Category 4 (per ISO 13849-1/
EN954-1) device with OSSD outputs or MSSI/USSI inputs. This
handshake verifies that the interface between the two devices is
capable of detecting certain unsafe failures that may occur (such
as a short circuit to a secondary source of power or to the other
channel, high input resistance or loss of signal ground).
Banner EZ-SCREEN can be described as a “two-piece” or “twobox” system – comprising an emitter and a receiver, but no
external controller. The External Device Monitoring (EDM) function
ensures the fault detection capability required by U.S. Control
Reliability and ISO13849-1 Categories 3 and 4 without a third
box, a controller or a “smart” (i.e., self-checking) safety module
required of systems without EDM.
Emitters have a row of synchronized modulated infrared (invisible)
light-emitting diodes (LEDs) in a compact rectangular metal
housing. Receivers have a corresponding row of synchronized
photodetectors. The dimensions of the light screen created by the
emitter and receiver are called the “defined area”; its width and
height are determined by the length of the sensor pair and the
distance between them. The maximum range is dependent on the
resolution, which decreases if corner mirrors are used. Emitter
and receiver pairs with 14 mm (0.55") resolution have a maximum
range of 6 m (20'), and pairs with 30 mm (1.18") resolution have
a maximum range of 18 m (60').

System Overview
1.2 Applications and Limitations
The Banner EZ-SCREEN is intended for point-of-operation machine
guarding applications and other safeguarding applications. It is
the user’s responsibility to verify whether the safeguarding is
appropriate for the application and is installed, as instructed by
this manual, by a Qualified Person.
Before installing the EZ-SCREEN, read this manual in its
entirety, paying particular attention to this section and all of
Section 3. The EZ-SCREEN’s ability to perform its safeguarding
function depends upon the appropriateness of the application
and upon its proper mechanical and electrical installation and
interfacing to the guarded machine. If all mounting, installation,
interfacing, and checkout procedures are not followed properly,
the EZ-SCREEN cannot provide the protection for which it was
designed.
EZ-SCREEN is typically used, but is not limited to, the following
applications:
• Small assembly equipment
• Molding presses
• Automated production equipment
• Robotic work cells
• Power presses
EZ-SCREEN may NOT be used with the following machinery or
unsuitable applications:
• Any machine that cannot be stopped immediately after a stop
signal is issued, such as single-stroke (or “full-revolution”)
clutched machinery.
• Any machine with inadequate or inconsistent machine response
time and stopping performance.
• Any machine that ejects materials or component parts through
the defined area.
• In any environment that is likely to adversely affect photoelectric
sensing system efficiency. For example, corrosive chemicals
or fluids or unusually severe levels of smoke or dust, if not
controlled, may degrade the efficiency of the System.
• As a tripping device to initiate or reinitiate machine motion
(PSDI applications), unless the machine and its control system
fully comply with the relevant standard or regulation (see OSHA
29CFR1910.217, ANSI/NFPA 79, ANSI B11, ANSI/RIA R15.06,
ISO 12100, IEC 60204-1, IEC 61496, or other appropriate
standard).
If an EZ-SCREEN is installed for use as a perimeter guard
(i.e., where a pass-through hazard may exist), the dangerous
machine motion can be initiated by normal means only after the
safeguarded area is clear of individuals and the EZ-SCREEN has
been manually reset. See Section 3.1.2 for further information.
Instruction Manual
WARNING . . . Read this Section
Carefully Before Installing the System
The user is responsible for satisfying
all local, state, and national laws, rules, codes, or
regulations relating to the installation and use of this
control system in any particular application. Take extreme
care to meet all legal requirements and follow all installation
and maintenance instructions contained in this manual.
The user has the sole responsibility to ensure that the
EZ-SCREEN is installed and interfaced to the guarded
machine by Qualified Persons in accordance with this
manual and applicable safety regulations.
Carefully read this manual in its entirety, paying particular
attention to Section 1.2 and all of Section 3, before installing
the System. Failure to follow these instructions could
result in serious bodily injury or death.
CAUTION . . . Install EZ-SCREEN Only
on Appropriate Applications
Banner EZ-SCREEN is for use only on
machinery that can be stopped immediately after a stop
signal is issued at any point in the machine’s stroke or
cycle, such as part-revolution clutched machines. Under no
circumstances may EZ-SCREEN be used on full-revolution
clutched machinery or in unsuitable applications as those
listed at left. If there is any doubt about whether or not
your machinery is compatible with EZ-SCREEN, contact
Banner’s Application Engineers at the factory.
1.3 Control Reliability: Redundancy and Self-Checking
Redundancy requires that EZ-SCREEN System circuit components
be “backed up” to the extent that, if the failure of a single
component will prevent effective machine stopping action when
needed, that component must have a redundant counterpart which
will perform the same function. The EZ-SCREEN is designed with
redundant microprocessors.
Redundancy must be maintained for as long as the EZ-SCREEN is
in operation. Because a redundant system is no longer redundant
after a component has failed, EZ-SCREEN is designed to monitor
itself continuously. A component failure detected by or within
the self-checking system causes a “stop” signal to be sent to
the guarded machine and puts the EZ-SCREEN into a Lockout
condition.
Recovery from this type of Lockout condition requires:
• replacement of the failed component (to restore redundancy)
and
• the appropriate reset procedure (see Section 1.4.8).
The Diagnostic Display is used to diagnose causes of a Lockout
condition (see Section 5.1).

EZ-SCREEN
System Overview
Instruction Manual
1.4 Operating Features
The Banner EZ-SCREEN models described by this manual feature
several standard selectable functions:
• Reduced Resolution (Floating Blanking),
• Trip or Latch Output,
• External Device Monitoring (EDM),
• Scan Code setting,
• Fixed Blanking,
• Inverted Display, and
• Cascading (available on SLSC.. models).
These functions are configured within the sensors, behind the
access cover on the front of each sensor and in the sensor wiring
configuration; see Sections 3 and 4.2 for more information and
configuration DIP switches.
The resolution and the maximum range can be determined by the
model number on the emitter and receiver. See Section 2 for a list
of model numbers.
1.4.1 Selectable Trip/Latch Output
The setting for Trip or Latch Output also determines whether the
System will enter RUN mode automatically or if it will require a
manual reset first (see Sections 1.4.8 and 4.2). If the System is
set for Trip Output, other measures must be taken to prevent a
pass-through hazard; see Section 3.1.2 and the warning below for
more information.
WARNING ... Use of Trip/Latch Output
Application of power to the EZ-SCREEN
components, the clearing of the defined
area, or the reset of a Latch condition MUST NOT initiate
dangerous machine motion. Machine control circuitry must
be designed so that one or more initiation devices must be
engaged (i.e., a conscious act) to start the machine – in
addition to the EZ-SCREEN going into RUN mode. Failure
to follow these instructions could result in serious bodily
injury or death.
If Trip Output is selected, the OSSD outputs will turn ON after
power is applied, and the receiver passes its internal self-test/
synchronization and recognizes that all beams are clear. The Trip
Output will also automatically reset after all interruptions of one
or more beams are cleared. If Latch Output is selected, the
EZ-SCREEN requires a manual reset for the OSSD outputs to turn
ON, after power is applied and all beams are clear (see
Section 4.5).
1.4.2 Emitter QD and Hookup Options
An EZ-SCREEN emitter with an 8-pin connector can be connected
to its own power supply or to the receiver cable color-for-color
(see Figures 3-16 and 3-17). The color-for-color hookup allows
the emitter and receiver positions to be interchanged without
rewiring.
NOTE: An EZ-SCREEN emitter with 5-pin connector and Test
function (see Section 1.4.4) is not capable of the color-forcolor hookup.
1.4.3 External Device Monitoring (EDM)
This feature allows the EZ-SCREEN System to monitor the status
of external devices, such as MPCEs. The choices are One- or
Two-Channel Monitoring, or No Monitoring. EDM is used when
the EZ-SCREEN OSSD outputs directly control the MPCEs or other
external devices; see Sections 3.5.3 and 4.2 for more information.
1.4.4 Remote Test Input
On 5-pin EZ-SCREEN emitter models (model numbers SLSE....Q5; see Tables 2.1 and 2.2), a Test function is provided. A pair
of wires is connected from the emitter (see Section 3.5.6) to an
external switch, typically a normally open contact, held closed.
Opening a switch connected between these two terminals “turns
off” the emitter, simulating an interruption of one or more light
beams. This remote Test input may be useful for EZ-SCREEN
System setup and to verify machine control circuit operation.
1.4.5 Scan Code Configuration
The emitter and receiver may be configured to one of two Scan
Code positions (1 or 2). Scan codes enable a receiver to recognize
beams only from an emitter with the same Scan Code setting.
This helps minimize the effects of crosstalk between multiple
emitter/receiver pairs, and allows multiple pairs to operate in close
proximity in certain situations. See Sections 3.1.5 and 3.1.8 for
proper mounting configurations. The Scan Code is set using the
selection switch in each sensor’s configuration port; see Section
4.2 for more information. Both the emitter and its corresponding
receiver must be set to the identical setting.

System Overview
Instruction Manual
1.4.6 Reduced Resolution (Floating Blanking)
Reduced Resolution increases the minimum diameter of an object
that the light screen can reliably detect anywhere within its defined
area. Reduced Resolution is generally used to allow one or more
objects (usually workpiece materials) to move through the defined
area, at any point, without tripping the OSSD safety outputs.
Selecting two-beam Reduced Resolution will reduce the overall
minimum object sensitivity, which allows multiple objects to move
through the defined area (see Section 3.4.2). The effect is that
every two consecutive beams (except for the sync beam) can be
blocked, but not cause the OSSDs to turn OFF. This is also called
“Multiple-Point Floating Blanking.”
Resolution directly affects the minimum allowable distance
between the defined area of a light screen and the nearest hazard
point (separation distance, see Section 3.1.1). The green status
indicator on the receiver flashes when Reduced Resolution is
enabled. The ignored object size and resultant Reduced Resolution
are listed in Section 3.4.2.
1.4.7 Status Indicators
Status indicators on both the emitter and receiver are clearly
visible on each sensor’s front panel.
• Emitter:
Bi-color red/green Status indicator – shows whether power is
applied, and whether the emitter is in RUN mode, TEST mode,
or Lockout condition.
1-Digit Diagnostic Display – indicates specific error or
configuration conditions.
• Receiver:

EZ-SCREEN
System Overview
Instruction Manual
1.4.8 Manual Resets and Lockout Conditions
Reset Routine
The EZ-SCREEN requires a manual reset to clear a Power-Up
Lockout or Latch condition, and after correcting the cause of
a Lockout condition. This function is designed to provide a
“monitored manual reset” (i.e., open-closed-open action), such
that a shorted or tied-down button cannot cause a reset. When a
key-operated switch is used, this is typically called a key reset.
To perform a manual reset, close the normally open switch for at
least 1/4 second, but no longer than 2 seconds, and then re-open
the switch. See Sections 3.1.3 and 4.3 for further information.
A Lockout condition will cause the EZ-SCREEN OSSD outputs
to turn OFF. A Lockout condition is indicated by a flashing Red
Status indicator and an error number displayed on the Diagnostic
Display. Internal Lockout conditions require a manual reset routine
to return the system to RUN mode after the failure has been
corrected and the input has been correctly cycled. A description
of possible lockouts, their causes, and troubleshooting hints are
listed in Section 5.
1.4.9 Fixed Blanking
The fixed blanking feature allows for a stationary object(s), such
as tooling, to be ignored while it remains positioned in the defined
area. A flashing Green Zone indicator denotes the location of a
blanked area. If the object is moved or removed, the System goes
into a lockout mode. This ensures that an unexpected hole in the
sensing field is not created.
Fixed blanking is easily programmed, simply by positioning the
objects, flipping two DIP switches and resetting the System, as
described in Section 3.4.3.
1.4.10 Inverted Display
A push button, located under the access cover, can be used to
invert the display. This is desirable when an emitter and receiver
are mounted with the QD connector ends up. A replacement
access cover with an inverted label is included with each emitter
and receiver to accommodate inverted mounting. (See Section
4.4).
1.4.11 Cascadeable Models
Emitter and receiver models SLSC..* (see Section 7) are capable
of interconnecting up to four emitter/receiver pairs – regardless
of the resolution, the total number of beams, or the size of the
defined area. EZ-SCREEN cascadeable models can also be used
individually as stand-alone systems.
Special cabling is not required, but the double-ended 22 awg
cordsets listed in Section 2.3 are recommended. See Section 7.4
for maximum cable lengths. Pigtail QD models may be used to
reduce the number of required cables.
Response time is dependent on the number of beams in the light
screen, and the light screen’s position in the cascade. Maximum
system response time can be calculated easily for these cascaded
systems, in two ways:
• Individually for each light screen in the cascade (separation
distance is calculated for each light screen in the cascade), or
• Based on the worst-case maximum for the entire cascade (all
light screens in the cascade have the same separation distance).
See Section 7.5 for more information.
*Models SLSC..-150.. not available.

resolution; available separately or in pairs), and two cables. Mounting hardware is included
with each emitter and receiver. Interfacing solutions include IM-T-.. modules, redundant
positively guided contactors, or an optional muting module; see Section 2.4.
Standard models (as listed in the following tables) feature a yellow painted aluminum
housing. Other housing finishes are also available, including black, white, and silver (nickelplated); contact the factory for more information.
Standard models are listed with integral QD fitting; for a 300 mm (12") pigtail with M12/
Euro-style 8-pin QD fitting, replace the “Q” in the model number with “P”. The 13 mm
(0.5") minimum bend radius accommodates low-clearance installations. When used in
a cascade installation, the pigtail models can reduce the number of cables and improve
clearance and cable management.
Electro-static Dissipative Models
Electro-static dissipative (ESD-safe) versions with nickel-plated housing are also available,
with a static-dissipative polymer coating which protects nearby components from damaging
ESD voltages.
NOTE: ESD-safe models are not available with the pigtail QD option.

Double-Ended (Sensor Interconnect) Cables
Double-ended cables are generally used to interconnect multiple emitters (8-pin or
5-pin) or receivers (8-pin) within a cascaded system. They are also useful for extending either
the branch or trunk cables of a model CSB splitter cordset (see page 10). When combining
cables in a multiple-light-screen cascade, refer to Section 7.4 for maximum cable lengths.

Splitter Cordsets
Model CSB splitter cordsets allow easy interconnection between an EZ-SCREEN 8-pin receiver and its
8-pin emitter, providing a single “homerun” cable for the optional “swapable” hookup (see Figure 3-16).
The model DEE2R-.. double-ended cables described on page 8 may be used to extend the lengths of the
QD trunk, branch #1, or branch #2. (Branch #1 and branch #2 cable sections are 300 mm/1' long.) The
model QDE-8..D single-ended cables may be used to extend the QD trunk for cut-to-length applications.

and follow all technical installation and maintenance
instructions contained in this manual.
The user has the sole responsibility to ensure that the
EZ-SCREEN System is installed and interfaced to the
guarded machine by Qualified Persons in accordance with
this manual and with applicable safety regulations.
Read Section 1.2 and all of Section 3 of this manual carefully
before installing the system. Failure to follow these
instructions could result in serious bodily injury or death.
3.1.1 Separation Distance (Safety Distance)
Minimum Separation Distance (Ds) is the minimum distance
required between the defined area and the closest reachable
hazard point. Separation distance is calculated so that when an
object or a person is detected (by blocking a sensing beam), the
EZ-SCREEN will send a stop signal to the machine, causing it to
stop by the time the person can reach any machine hazard point.
Calculation of separation distance takes into account several
factors, including a calculated human speed, the total system
stopping time (which itself has several components), and the
depth penetration factor. After the separation distance (Ds)
is determined, record the calculated distance on the Daily
Checkout Card.
!
WARNING . . . Proper Separation
Distance
Banner EZ-SCREEN emitters and receivers must
be mounted at a distance from the nearest hazard such that
an individual cannot reach the hazard before cessation of
hazardous motion or situation. Failure to establish and
maintain the minimum separation distance could result in
serious bodily injury or death.
3.1 Mechanical Installation Considerations
The two factors that influence the layout of the EZ-SCREEN’s
mechanical installation the most are separation distance and
hard guarding. Other considerations include emitter and receiver
orientation, adjacent reflective surfaces, use of corner mirrors, and
installation of multiple EZ-SCREEN emitter/receiver pairs.
!
WARNING . . . Position Components
Carefully
The emitter and receiver must be positioned
such that the hazard can not be accessed by reaching
over, under, around or through the sensing field. Additional
guarding may be required; see Separation Distance, Section
3.1.1, and Pass-Through Hazards, Section 3.1.2, and
Supplemental Safeguarding, Section 3.1.4.

EZ-SCREEN
Installation and Alignment
Instruction Manual
The formula used for U.S. applications (other standards may
apply) to calculate separation distance is:
Ds = K x (Ts + Tr) + Dpf
where:
Ds – the separation distance, in mm (inches);
K –1600 mm per second (or 63" per second), the
OSHA1910.217, ANSI B11, ANSI/RIA R15.06
recommended hand-speed constant (See Note 1);
Ts –the overall stop time of the machine (in seconds) from
the initial “stop” signal to the final ceasing of all motion,
including stop times of all relevant control elements (e.g.,
IM-T-.. Interface Modules) and measured at maximum
machine velocity (See Note 2 and Warning at right).
Tr –the maximum response time, in seconds, of the
EZ-SCREEN emitter/receiver pair (see Section 2.1 for
SLS.. models and Section 7.5 for SLSC.. models); and
Dpf – the added distance due to depth penetration factor as
prescribed in OSHA1910.217, ANSI B11, ANSI/RIA
R15.06 for U.S. applications (See Caution below):
Reduced
Resolution
Depth Penetration Factor (Dpf)
14 mm Systems
30 mm Systems
OFF
24 mm (1")
78 mm (3")
ON
78 mm (3")
180 mm (7")
NOTES:
1. The OSHA-recommended hand speed constant K has been
determined by various studies, and although these studies
indicate speeds of 63"/second to more than 100"/second,
they are not conclusive determinations. Consider all factors,
including the physical ability of the operator, when determining
the value of K to be used.
2. Ts is usually measured by a stop-time measuring device. If
the machine manufacturer’s specified stop time is used, at
least 20% should be added to allow for possible clutch/ brake
system deterioration. This measurement must take into account
the slower of the two MPCE channels, and the response time
of all devices or controls that react to stop the machine. See
Notice Regarding MPCEs. If all devices are not included, the
calculated separation distance (Ds) will be too short and
serious injury could result.
!
CAUTION . . . Proper Installation
When Using Reduced Resolution
Reduced Resolution increases Dpf (see values
in table). Increase the depth penetration factor to calculate
the proper separation distance whenever Reduced
Resolution is used. Always turn Reduced Resolution
OFF when the larger minimum object detection size is not
required.
!
WARNING . . . Determine Correct Stop
Time
Stop time (Ts) must include the response time
of all devices or controls that react to stop the machine.
If all devices are not included, the calculated safety distance
(Ds) will be too short. This can lead to serious bodily injury
or death. Be sure to include the stop time of all relevant
devices and controls in your calculations.
Notice Regarding MPCEs
Each of the two Machine Primary Control Elements (MPCE1
and MPCE2) must be capable of immediately stopping the
dangerous machine motion, irrespective of the state of the
other. These two channels of machine control need not be
identical, but the stop time performance of the machine (Ts,
used to calculate the separation distance) must take into
account the slower of the two channels.
This example shows how to use the formula at left to
calculate separation (safety) distance (Ds). These numbers
will be used for the variables in the formula:
K =63" per second (the hand speed constant set by
OSHA)
Ts =0.32 (0.250 second is specified by the machine
manufacturer; plus 20% safety factor; plus 20
ms for interface module
IM-T-9A response)
Tr =0.023 second (the spec­i­fied response time of an
SLSP14-600 EZ-SCREEN System)
Our example uses a 600 mm system with 14 mm resolution
and Reduced Resolution ON, so Dpf is 3". Response time for
this example is 0.023 second.
Sub­sti­tute the numbers into the for­mu­la as fol­lows:
Ds = K x ( Ts +
Tr ) + Dpf
Ds = 63 x (0.32 + 0.023) + 3 = 24.6"
In this example, the EZ-SCREEN emit­ter and re­ceiv­er must
be mount­ed so that no part of the defined area will be closer
than 24.6" to the closest reachable hazard point on the
guarded ma­chine.

3.1.2 Pass-Through Hazards
A “pass-through hazard” is associated with applications where
personnel may pass through a safeguard (which issues a stop
command to remove the hazard), and then continues into the
guarded area, such as in perimeter guarding. Subsequently, their
presence is no longer detected, and the related danger becomes
the unexpected start or restart of the machine while personnel are
within the guarded area.
In the use of safety light screens, a pass-through hazard typically
results from large separation distances calculated from long
stopping times, large minimum object sensitivities, reach-over,
reach-through, or other installation considerations. A passthrough hazard can be generated with as little as 75 mm (3")
between the defined area and the machine frame or hard guarding.
Reducing or Eliminating Pass-Through Hazards
Eliminate or reduce pass-through hazards whenever possible.
While it is recommended to eliminate the pass-through hazard
altogether, this may not be possible due to machine layout,
machine capabilities, or other application considerations.
One solution is to ensure that personnel are continually sensed
while within the hazardous area. This can be accomplished by
using supplemental safeguarding, such as described by the ANSI
B11 series of safety requirements or other appropriate standards
(see Section 3.1.4).
An alternate method is to ensure that once the safeguarding
device is tripped it will latch, and will require a deliberate manual
action to reset. This method of safeguarding relies upon the
location of the reset switch as well as safe work practices and
procedures to prevent an unexpected start or restart of the
guarded machine.
!
WARNING . . . Use of EZ-SCREEN for
Perimeter Guarding
If an EZ-SCREEN System is installed in an
application that results in a pass-through hazard (e.g.,
perimeter guarding), either the EZ-SCREEN System or the
Machine Primary Control Elements (MPCEs) of the guarded
machine must cause a Latched response following an
interruption of the defined area.
The reset of this Latched condition may only be achieved
by actuating a reset switch that is separate from the normal
means of machine cycle initiation. The switch must be
positioned as described in Section 3.1.3.
Lockout/Tagout procedures per ANSI Z244.1 may be
required, or additional safeguarding, as described by ANSI
B11 safety requirements or other appropriate standards,
must be used if a pass-through hazard can not be eliminated
or reduced to an acceptable level of risk. Failure to observe
this warning could result in serious bodily injury or death.
3.1.3 Reset Switch Location
The reset switch must be mounted at a location that complies
with the warning below.
A key-actuated reset switch provides some operator or
supervisory control, as the key can be removed from the switch
and taken into the guarded area. However, this does not prevent
unauthorized or inadvertent resets due to spare keys in the
possession of others, or additional personnel entering the guarded
area unnoticed.
Resetting a safeguard must not initiate hazardous motion. Safe
work procedures require a start-up procedure to be followed
and the individual performing the reset to verify that the entire
hazardous area is clear of all personnel, before each reset of the
safeguard is performed. If any area can not be observed from the
reset switch location, additional supplemental safeguarding must
be used: at a minimum, visual and audible warnings of machine
start-up.
!
WARNING . . . Reset Switch Location
All reset switches must be:
• Outside the guarded area,
• Located to allow the switch operator full, unobstructed
view of the entire guarded area while the reset is
performed,
• Out of reach from within the guarded area, and
• Protected against unauthorized or inadvertent operation
(such as through the use of rings or guards).
If any areas within the guarded area are not visible from the
reset switch, additional safeguarding must be provided,
as described by the ANSI B11 series or other appropriate
standards. Failure to do so could result in serious injury or
death.
3.1.4 Supplemental Safeguarding
As described in Section 3.1.1, the EZ-SCREEN components must
be properly positioned such that an individual can not reach
through the defined area and access the hazard point before the
machine has stopped.
Additionally, the hazard can not be accessible by reaching around,
under, or over the defined area. To accomplish this, supplemental
guarding (mechanical barriers, such as screens or bars), as
described by ANSI B11 safety requirements or other appropriate
standards, must be installed. Access will then be possible only
through the defined area of the EZ-SCREEN or through other
safeguarding that prevents access to the hazard (see Figure 3-3).
The mechanical barriers used for this purpose are typically
called “hard guarding”; there must be no gaps between the hard
guarding and the defined area. Any openings in the hard guarding
must comply with the safe opening requirements of ANSI B11 or
other appropriate standard.

WARNING . . . The Hazard Must Be
Accessible Only through the Defined Area
The installation of the EZ-SCREEN must
prevent any individual from reaching around, under, over

3.1.5 Emitter and Receiver Orientation
The emitter and receiver must be mounted parallel to each other
and aligned in a common plane, with both cable ends pointing in
the same direction. Never mount the emitter with its cable end
oriented opposite the cable end of the receiver. If this occurs,
voids in the light screen may allow objects or personnel to pass
through the defined area undetected (see Figure 3-4).
The emitter and receiver may be oriented in a vertical or horizontal
plane, or at any angle between horizontal and vertical, as long as
they are parallel and their cable ends point in the same direction.
Verify that the light screen completely covers all access to the
hazard point that is not already protected by hard guarding or
other supplemental guarding.

guarding, is the primary safeguard. Supplemental safeguarding
(such as a horizontal-mounted safety light screen as an area
guard) is required in areas that can not be viewed from the
reset switch (i.e., behind the robot and the conveyor). Additional
supplemental safeguarding may be required to prevent clearance
or trapping hazards (e.g., the safety mat as an area guard between
the robot, the turntable, and the conveyor).

3.1.6 Adjacent Reflective Surfaces
3.1.7 Use of Corner Mirrors
A reflective surface located adjacent to the defined area may
deflect one or more beams around an object in the defined area.
In the worst case, an “optical short circuit” may occur, allowing
an object to pass undetected through the defined area (see Figure
3-6).
This reflective surface may result from shiny surfaces or glossy
paint on the machine, the workpiece, the work surface, the floor
or the walls. Beams deflected by reflective surfaces are discovered
by performing the trip test portion of the final alignment procedure
and the periodic checkout procedures (Section 3.4.4).
To eliminate problem reflections:
• If possible, relocate the sensors to move the beams away from
the reflective surface(s), being careful to maintain adequate
separation distance (see Figure 3-6).
• Otherwise, if possible, paint, mask or roughen the shiny
surface to reduce its reflectivity.
• Where these are not possible (as with a shiny workpiece),
mount the sensors in such a way that the receiver’s field of view
and/or the emitter’s spread of light are restricted.
• Repeat the trip test to verify that these changes have eliminated
the problem reflection(s). If the workpiece is especially reflective
and comes close to the defined area, perform the trip test with
the workpiece in place.
!
WARNING . . . Avoid Installation Near
Reflective Surfaces
Avoid locating the defined area near a reflective
surface; it could reflect sensing beam(s) around an object or
person within the defined area, and prevent its detection by
the EZ-SCREEN System. Perform the trip test, as described
in Section 3.4.4, to detect such reflection(s) and the
resultant optical short circuit.
Failure to prevent reflection problems will result in
incomplete guarding and could result in serious bodily
injury or death.

WARNING . . . Avoid Retroreflective
Installation
Do not install emitters and receivers in
“retroreflective” mode, with less than a 45° angle of
incidence, as shown in Figure 3-7.
Sensing could be unreliable in this configuration; serious
bodily injury or death could result.
Mirrors are not allowed for applications that would allow
personnel undetected access into the safeguarded area.
If mirrors are used, the difference between the angle of incidence
from the emitter to the mirror and from the mirror to the receiver
must be between 45° and 120° (see Figure 3-7). If placed at a
sharper angle, as shown in the example, an object in the light
screen may deflect beam(s) to the receiver, preventing the object
from being detected (i.e., “false proxing”). Angles greater than
120° result in difficult alignment and possible optical short
circuits.

3.1.8 Installation of Multiple Systems
Emitter
When three or more sensor pairs are installed in the same plane
(as shown for two pairs in Figure 3-8), optical crosstalk may
occur between sensor pairs whose emitter and receiver lenses are
oriented in the same direction. In this situation, eliminate optical
crosstalk by mounting these sensor pairs exactly in line with each
other within one plane, or by adding a mechanical barrier between
the pairs.
To further aid in avoiding crosstalk, the sensors feature two
selectable Scan Codes. A receiver set to one Scan Code will not
“see” an emitter set to another code (see Section 4.2).

3.2 Mechanical Mounting Procedure
Once the mechanical layout considerations of Section 3.1 are
addressed, mount the sensors and route the cables.
3.2.1 Sensor Mounting
Emitter/receiver pairs with 14 mm (0.55") resolution may be
spaced from 0.1 m to 6 m (4" to 20') apart. Emitter/receiver pairs
with 30 mm (1.18") resolution may be spaced from
0.1 m to 18 m (4" to 60') apart. The maximum distance between
an emitter and its receiver is reduced if corner mirrors are used
(see Section 3.1.7). The supplied brackets (when mounted to the
sensor end caps) allow ±30° rotation.
From a common point of reference (ensuring the minimum
separation distance calculated in Section 3.1.1), make
measurements to locate the emitter and receiver in the same
plane with their midpoints directly opposite each other. Important:
The connector ends of both sensors must point in the same
direction (see Figure 3-5 and warning, Section 3.1.3). Mount the
emitter and receiver mounting brackets (see below) using the
supplied M6 bolts and Keps nuts, or user-supplied hardware; see
Figure 3-9.
Mount the emitter and receiver in their brackets; position their
windows directly facing each other. Measure from a reference
plane (e.g., a level building floor) to the same point(s) on the
emitter and receiver to verify their mechanical alignment. Use
a carpenter’s level, a plumb bob, or the optional LAT-1 Laser
Alignment Tool (see Section 2.5) or check the diagonal distances
between the sensors, to achieve mechanical alignment. Final
alignment procedures are explained in Section 3.4.
Center mounting brackets must be used with longer sensors,
whenever the sensors are subject to shock or vibration. In such
situations, the sensors are designed to be mounted with up to
900 mm unsupported distance (between brackets). Sensors 1050
mm and longer are supplied with a center bracket to be used as
needed with the standard end-cap brackets (see Figure 3-9).
1. Attach the center bracket to the mounting surface when
mounting the end-cap brackets.
2. Attach the clamp to both slots of the housing, using the
included M5 screws and T-nuts.
3. After the sensor is mounted to the end-cap brackets, attach the
clamp to the center bracket using the supplied M5 screw.
Verify that:
• The emitter and receiver are directly opposite each other.
• Nothing is interrupting the defined area.
• The defined area (marked on the sensors) is the same distance
from a common reference plane for each sensor.
• The emitter and receiver are in the same plane and are
level/plumb and square to each other (vertical, horizontal,
or inclined at the same angle, and not tilted front-to-back or
side-to-side).

3.2.2 Mounting the Reset Switch
3.3 Initial Electrical Connections
Mount the reset switch in a location that complies with the
warning in Section 3.1.3. See Section 3.3.2 for electrical
connection.
3.2.3 Routing Cables
Connect the QD connectors and route the sensor cables to the
junction box, electrical panel, or other enclosure in which the
Interface Module, the redundant mechanically linked interposing
relays, FSDs, or other safety-related parts of the control system
are located. This must be done per local wiring code for lowvoltage dc control cables and may require installation of electrical
conduit. See Section 2.2 for selection of Banner-supplied cables.
EZ-SCREEN is designed and manufactured to be highly resistant
to electrical noise and to operate reliably in industrial settings.
However, extreme electrical noise may cause a random Trip or
Latch condition; in extreme cases, a Lockout is possible. Emitter
and receiver wiring is low voltage; routing the sensor wires
alongside power wires, motor/servo wires, or other high-voltage
wiring may inject noise into the EZ-SCREEN System. It is good
wiring practice (and may be required by code) to isolate emitter
and receiver cables from high-voltage wires, avoid routing cables
close to “noisy” wiring, and provide a good connection to earth
ground.
Sensor QD cabling and any interconnect wiring should meet the
following specifications. The wires used should have an insulation
temperature rating of at least 90°C (194°F).

WARNING . . . Proper Electrical Hookup
Electrical hookup must be made by Qualified
Personnel and must comply with NEC (National
Electrical Code) and local standards.
Make no more connections to the EZ-SCREEN System
than are described in Sections 3.3.1 through 3.5.3 of this
manual.
Connection of other wiring or equipment to the EZ-SCREEN
System could result in serious bodily injury or death.
Banner Engineering Corp. • Minneapolis, U.S.A.
www.bannerengineering.com • Tel: 763.544.3164
Lockout/tagout procedures may be required (refer to OSHA
29CFR1910.147, ANSI Z244-1, or the appropriate standard
for controlling hazardous energy). Following relevant electrical
standards and wiring codes, such as the NEC, NFPA79 or
IEC60204-1, always connect earth ground (green/yellow wire,
see Figures 3-17 through 3-20). Do not operate the EZ-SCREEN
System without an earth ground connection. See the warning
below.
Make the electrical connections in the order described in this
section. Do not remove end-caps; no internal connections are to
be made. All connections are made through the M12 Euro-style
quick-disconnects.
When installing QD cables, do not use tools to tighten the
coupling nut (i.e. hand-tighten only). Do not rotate the body of
the QD, or damage to the connector can occur.
3.3.1 Emitter Cable
Standard EZ-SCREEN emitters have an 8-pin cable, but only three
conductors are required to be used (Brown = +24V dc, Blue =
0V dc, Green/Yellow = GND). The other wires are for an optional
hookup that allows for parallel connection (color-for-color) to the
receiver cable (see Figure 3-16). This optional hookup provides for
sensor interchangeability (or swapability) that allows for the ability
to install either sensor at either QD connection. Besides providing
similar cabling, this wiring scheme is advantageous during
installation, wiring, and troubleshooting.
Emitters with the optional TEST function (model number suffix
Q5) use a 5-pin cable (see Figure 3-17). Locate the black and the
white wires at the end of the cable; if the Test input will be used,
temporarily connect the ends of the wires to each other (but not
to an external contact at this time). If the Test input will not be
used, connect the emitter cable black and white wires together
and properly terminate (e.g., with the included wire-nut).
3.3.2 Receiver Cable
Do not connect any wires to the machine control circuits (i.e.,
OSSD outputs) at this time. For the initial power-up and checkout,
NO EDM must be configured. Locate the orange and orange/black
wires (pins 2 and 3) and temporarily connect the ends of the
wires to each other (but not to the machine at this time). Take
precautions to prevent the wires from shorting to ground or to
other sources of energy (e.g., terminate with the included wirenut). Final EDM wiring must be completed later.
If used, connect the external reset switch to the reset wire (violet)
on the receiver cable and to 24V dc (see Figures 3-18, 3-19 and
3-20). See warning in Section 3.1.3 on the physical location of
the external reset switch. The reset switch must be a normally
open switch that is held closed for approximately 1/4 second, but
no longer than 2 seconds, and then re-opened to accomplish the
reset. The switch must be capable of switching 10 to 30V dc at
30 mA.

EZ-SCREEN
Installation and Alignment
3.4 Light Screen Initial Checkout
The initial checkout procedure must be performed by a Qualified
Person (see Section 4.1). It must be performed only after
configuring the System and after connecting the emitter and
receiver per Section 3.3.
Configuring the System for Initial Checkout
Verify that Test input is jumpered (if used) and the System is set
to the factory defaults for initial checkout and optical alignment.
(Factory defaults are for Trip Output, 2-Channel EDM, Reduced
Resolution OFF, and Scan Code 1. See Figure 4-1.)
The procedure is performed on two occasions:
• To ensure proper installation when the System is first installed,
and
• To ensure proper System function whenever any maintenance or
modification is performed on the System or on the machinery
being guarded by the System. (See Section 6.1 for a schedule of
required checkouts.)
For the initial checkout, the EZ-SCREEN System must be checked
without power being available to the guarded machine. Final
interface connections to the guarded machine cannot take place
until the light screen system has been checked out. This may
require lockout/tagout procedures (refer to OSHA1910.147, ANSI
Z244-1, or the appropriate standard for controlling hazardous
energy). These connections will be made after the initial checkout
procedure has been successfully completed.
Verify that:
• Power has been removed from (or is not available to) the
guarded machine, its controls or actuators; and
• The machine control circuit or the Interface Module is not
connected to the OSSD outputs at this time (permanent
connections will be made later); and
• EDM is configured for No Monitoring, per Section 3.3.2.
3.4.1 Initial Power-Up and Optical Alignment
1. Inspect the area near the light screen for reflective surfaces,
including work pieces and the guarded machine. Reflective
surfaces may cause light beams to reflect around a person in
the light screen, preventing the person from being detected and
not stopping the machine motion. See Section 3.1.6.
Eliminate the reflective surfaces as possible by relocating
them, painting, masking or roughening them. Remaining
problem reflections will become apparent during step 5.
2. Verify that power is removed from the EZ-SCREEN System
and from the guarded machine and that the OSSD safety
outputs are not connected. Remove all obstructions from the
light screen.
Instruction Manual
Leaving power to the guarded machine OFF, make power and
earth ground connections on both the emitter and receiver
cables (see Figures 3-17 to 3-20) and then power up the
EZ-SCREEN System (only).
Verify that input power is present to both emitter and
receiver. At least one indicator on both emitter and receiver
should be ON and the start-up sequence should cycle.
3. Observe both the emitter and the receiver System Status
indicators and the receiver Zone indicators to determine light
screen alignment status:
•A
Lockout condition (emitter or receiver) – the System
Status indicator single-flashing Red, and the receiver Zone
and Reset indicators OFF. Proceed to Section 5 for diagnostic
information.
• Normal operating mode (emitter) – the System Status
indicator ON Green.
• TEST mode (5-pin emitters only) – a flashing Green System
Status indicator (Test input open, see Figure 3-17 and Section
5.2).
• A Latch condition (receiver), all optical beams clear – the
receiver System Status indicator ON Red and the Reset
indicator double-flashing Yellow; Zone indicators ON Green.
When the receiver is configured for Latch Output, the outputs
are ON only when all beams are clear and after a manual reset
(see Section 1.4.7). If a reset routine can cause a Clear (RUN)
condition, optimize the alignment as described in step 4. If
a Clear (RUN) condition can not be achieved, see “Blocked
condition” below.
• A Clear (RUN) condition (receiver) – the System Status
indicator ON Green (or flashing Green if Reduced Resolution
is enabled), and the Reset indicator ON Yellow. All Zone
indicators ON Green.
To optimize alignment and maximize excess gain, slightly
loosen the sensor mounting screws (x4) and rotate one
sensor left and right, noting the positions where the Status
indicators turn Red (Blocked condition); repeat with the other
sensor (see Figure 3-11). Center each sensor between those
two positions and tighten the end cap mounting screws,
making sure to maintain the positioning as the screws
are tightened. The sensor lenses should directly face each
other. Proceed to System Configuration (Section 3.4.2) once
optimum optical alignment is verified.
•A
Blocked condition (receiver) is indicated by the System
Status indicator ON Red, the yellow Reset indicator ON,
and one or more Zone indicator(s) ON Red, identifying the
location of the blocked beams, and the number of blocked
beams will be displayed. Proceed to step #4.
NOTE: If beam 1 is blocked, Zone indicator 1 will be Red
and all others will be OFF. Beam 1 provides the
synchronization signal.
NOTE: If the Test input is open, the 3-digit Diagnostic Display
will indicate the total number of beams in the system
(minus one) and all Zone indicators will be Red.

Figure 3-11. Optimum optical alignment
For situations where alignment is difficult, a LAT-1-SS Laser
Alignment Tool can be used to assist or confirm alignment
by providing a visible red dot along the sensor’s optical axis
(see Figure 3-13).
In addition to the standard optical alignment procedure, verify (see
Figure 3-12):
e. If, at any time, the Red Status indicator begins to flash
steadily, the System has entered a Lockout condition. See
Section 5.1.1 for further information.
• The middle of the defined area and the center point of the
mirrors are approximately the same distance from a common
reference point, such as the same height above a level floor.
Ensure that there are equal amounts of mirror surface above
and below the defined area such that the optical beams are not
passing below or above the mirror.
Optical Alignment Procedure with Mirrors
EZ-SCREEN sensors may be used with one or more corner
mirrors for guarding more than one side of an area. The MSM...
and SSM-... rear-surface glass mirrors are rated at 85% efficiency.
Thus, excess gain and sensing range are reduced when using
mirrors; see Section 3.1.7.
• That the emitter, receiver, and all mirrors are level and plumb,
During any adjustments, allow only one individual to adjust any
one item at any one time.
NOTE: A LAT-1-SS Laser Alignment Tool is very helpful by
providing a visible red dot along the optical axis. See Figure
3-13 and Banner Safety Applications Note SA104 (P/N
57477) for further information.

WARNING . . . Use of Reduced
Resolution and Fixed Blanking
Use Reduced Resolution and Fixed Blanking
only when necessary. Any holes created in the defined area
either must be completely filled by the blanked object or the
separation distance must be increased to account for the
larger resolution (see Section 3.1.1).
3.4.3 Fixed Blanking
One or multiple areas within an EZ-SCREEN sensor pair may be
blanked out. The minimum number of beams between two blanked
areas is one. Any beam other than the sync beam may be blanked.
All beams of a fixed blanked area must stay blocked at all times
(after the fixed blanking programming mode has been exited), in
order for the OSSDs to stay ON.
Fixed Blanking Programming Procedure
1.From normal operation or a power OFF condition, move the
second and third DIP switches (the first RR and T/L) both to
the left (T and RR position). See Figure 3-14.
2.Move the fourth and fifth DIP switches (the second RR and
T/L) both to the right (L and OFF position).
Figure 3-13. Optical alignment using the LAT-1
Q
3.4.2 Reduced Resolution (Floating Blanking)
P
Reduced Resolution allows objects of a certain maximum size to
interrupt the defined area without causing a Trip condition (i.e., the
OSSDs turn OFF). Use Reduced Resolution only when necessary.
In Reduced Resolution applications, the separation distance
always increases due to the larger depth penetration factor (Dpf).
In either case see Section 3.1.1 to determine separation distance.
With 2-beam Reduced Resolution enabled, any two consecutive
beams, (except for the sync beam), can be blocked without
causing a stop condition. Thus, multiple “holes” are created in
which 14 mm systems will “see” a 30 mm object and ignore an
8.5 mm object. Similarily, 30 mm systems will “see” a 60 mm
object and ignore a 17 mm object. See Figure 4-1 for DIP-switch
configuration. During operation, the Status indicator flashes
Green when Reduced Resolution is enabled.
3.The receiver should now either be in a lockout condition or
power is still OFF.
4.If power is OFF: Apply power
Lockout condition: Perform a valid reset sequence (close the
reset switch for 0.25 to 2 seconds, then reopen the switch).
5.Fixed Blanking configuration indicated by:
• Display alternates between “PFA” and the number of blocked beams (“0” if all beams are clear).
(PFA = Program Fixed Blanking Active)
• Zone indicators active
• Yellow Reset indicator OFF
• Status indicator ON Red
6.Position object(s) to be blanked.
7.When beams are blocked, the 7-segment display alternates
between “PFA” and the number of blocked beams. The zone
indicators remain active and denote the location of blocked
beams.

8.To Teach the blanked beams, simply re-configure DIP
switches for normal operation (see Figure 4-1). Verify that
only the objects to be blanked are interrupting the defined
area. A lockout will occur if an object is moved or removed
after teaching.
9.Receiver indicates:
• Display: PFC ON solid (PFC = Program Fixed Blanking Complete)
• Zone indicators flash approximate location of fixed blanked area programmed
• Reset indicator single-flashing Yellow
• Status indicator single-flashing Red
10.Perform a valid reset sequence (see Step 4) or cycle power.
11.To disable fixed blanking, follow this same procedure, but
remove all objects not to be blanked at Step 6.
With Power ON:
2. Verify that the EZ-SCREEN is in RUN mode with the Green
Status indicator ON (or flashing if Reduced Resolution is
enabled), all Zone indicators are Green, and the Yellow Status
indicator ON. A manual reset may be required in Latch mode
(see Sections 4.2 and 4.3).
3. Pass the specified test piece through the defined area in three
paths: near the emitter, near the receiver, and midway between
the emitter and receiver (Figure 3-15).
4. During each pass, while the test piece is interrupting the
defined area, at least one Zone indicator must be Red. The Red
Zone indicator must change with the position of the test piece
within the defined area.
• T rip Output Operation: The Status indicator must turn Red
and remain Red for as long as the test piece remains in the
defined area. If not, the installation has failed the trip test.
• Latch Output Operation: The Status indicator must turn Red
and remain Red. The Yellow Reset indicator must remain
ON steady. If the Reset indicator begins to flash at any time
while the test piece is interrupting the defined area, the
installation has failed the trip test.
1. Position object(s) in the defined
area.
2. Set T/L and RR switches as shown.
3. Press the Reset button or cycle
power.
If all Zone indicators turn Green or fail to follow the position of
the test piece while it is within the defined area, the installation
has failed the trip test. Check for correct sensor orientation,
reflective surfaces and unguarded areas created due to the use of
Blanking. Do not continue until the situation is corrected.
4. Reconfigure DIP switches for
normal operation.
5. Press the Rest button or cycle
power.

3.4.4 Trip Test
After optimizing the optical alignment and configuring fixed
blanking and Reduced Resolution (if applicable), perform the trip
test to verify the detection capability of the EZ-SCREEN System.
This test will also verify correct sensor orientation (Section
3.1.5), identify optical short circuits (Section 3.1.6), and verify the
expected resolution for applications using Reduced Resolution
(Section 3.4.2). Once the installation has passed the trip test,
the safety outputs may be connected and the commissioning
checkout may be performed (initial installations only).

Operation, the Status indicator will remain Red until a manual
reset is performed (the Yellow Reset indicator will be flashing).
If mirrors are used in the application: Test the defined area
on each leg of the sensing path (e.g. emitter to mirror, between
mirror and receiver, see Figure 3-15).
If the EZ-SCREEN System passes all three checks during the trip
test, go on to Section 3.5.
!
WARNING . . . If Trip Test Indicates a
Problem
If the EZ-SCREEN System does not respond
properly to the trip test, do not attempt to use the System.
If this occurs, the EZ-SCREEN cannot be relied on to stop
dangerous machine motion when a person or object enters
the defined area.
Serious bodily injury or death could result.
Cascaded systems: To test a cascaded system, each light screen
must be tested individually, while monitoring the status indicator
on the first receiver in the cascade.

CAUTION . . . Shock Hazard
Always disconnect all power from the
EZ-SCREEN System and the guarded machine
before making any connections or replacing any
component. Use extreme caution to avoid electrical shock at
all times.
3.5.1 OSSD Output Connections
Both the Output Signal Switching Device (OSSD) outputs must be
connected to the machine control so that the machine’s safetyrelated control system interrupts the circuit or power to the
Machine Primary Control Element(s) (MPCE), resulting in a nonhazardous condition.
Final Switching Devices (FSDs) typically accomplish this when the
OSSDs go to an OFF state. See Figure 3-18.
Refer to the output specifications in Section 2.7 and the warning
at left before making OSSD output connections and interfacing the
EZ-SCREEN System to the machine.
3.5.2 FSD Interfacing Connections
FSDs (Final Switching Devices) can take many forms, though
the most common are forced-guided, mechanically linked relays
or an interface module. The mechanical linkage between the
contacts allows the device to be monitored by the External Device
Monitoring circuit for certain failures.
Depending on the application, the use of FSDs can facilitate
controlling voltage and current that differs from the OSSD outputs
of the EZ-SCREEN. FSDs can also be used to control an additional
number of hazards by creating multiple safety stop circuits.
Safety Stop Circuits
A safety stop allows for an orderly cessation of motion for
safeguarding purposes, which results in a stop of motion and
removal of power from the MPCEs (assuming this does not create
additional hazards). A safety stop circuit typically comprises a
minimum of two normally open (N.O.) contacts from forcedguided, mechanically linked relays, which are monitored (through
External Device Monitoring) to detect certain failures in order
to prevent the loss of the safety function. Such a circuit can
be described as a “safe switching point.” Typically, safety stop
circuits are either single-channel, which is a series connection of
at least two N.O. contacts; or dual-channel, which is a separate
connection of two N.O. contacts. In either method, the safety
function relies on the use of redundant contacts to control a single
hazard (if one contact fails ON, the second contact will arrest the
hazard and prevent the next cycle from occurring). See Figure
3-18.
The interfacing of the safety stop circuits must be accomplished
so that the safety function can not be suspended, overridden, or
defeated, unless accomplished in a manner at the same or greater
Installation and Alignment
degree of safety as the machine’s safety related control system
that includes the EZ-SCREEN.
The normally open safety outputs from an interface module
provide a series connection of redundant contacts that form safety
stop circuits for use in either single-channel or dual-channel
control. (See Figures 3-19 and 3-20.)
Dual-Channel Control
Dual-channel control provides the ability to electrically extend
the safe switching point beyond the FSD contacts. With proper
monitoring (i.e., EDM), this method of interfacing is capable of
detecting certain failures in the control wiring between the safety
stop circuit and the MPCEs. These failures include a short-circuit
of one channel to a secondary source of energy or voltage, or
the loss of the switching ability of one of the FSD outputs. Such
failures could lead to the loss of redundancy — or to a complete
loss of safety, if not detected and corrected.
The possibility of a failure to the wiring increases as the physical
distance between the FSD safety stop circuits and the MPCEs
increase, as the length or the routing of the interconnecting wires
increases, or if the FSD safety stop circuits and the MPCEs are
located in different enclosures. For this reason, dual-channel
control with EDM monitoring should be used in any installation
where the FSDs are located remotely from the MPCEs.
Single-Channel Control
Single-channel control uses a series connection of FSD contacts
to form a safe switching point. After this point in the machine’s
safety-related control system, failures can occur that would result
in the loss of the safety function (such as a short-circuit to a
secondary source of energy or voltage).
For this reason, single-channel control interfacing should be used
only in installations where FSD safety stop circuits and the MPCEs
are mounted within the same control panel, adjacent to each other,
and are directly connected to each other; or where the possibility
of such a failure can be excluded. If this can not be achieved, then
dual-channel control should be used.
Methods to exclude the possibility of these failures include, but
are not limited to:
• Physically separating interconnecting control wires from each
other and from secondary sources of power.
• Routing interconnecting control wires in separate conduit, runs,
or channels.
• Locating all elements (modules, switches, and devices under
control) within one control panel, adjacent to each other, and
directly connected with short wires.
• Properly installing multi-conductor cabling and multiple wires
through strain relief fittings. (Over-tightening of a strain-relief
can cause short-circuits at that point.)
• Using positive-opening or direct-drive components, installed and
mounted in a positive mode.

3.5.3 Machine Primary Control Elements and EDM Inputs
Each of the two Machine Primary Control Elements (MPCE1 and
MPCE2) must be capable of immediately stopping the dangerous
machine motion, irrespective of the state of the other. These
two channels of machine control need not be identical, but the
stop time performance of the machine (Ts, used to calculate the
separation distance, see Section 3.3.1) must take into account
the slower of the two channels. Some machines offer only one
Primary Control Element. For such machines, it is necessary to
duplicate the circuit of the single MPCE, by adding a second. Refer
to Figures 3-19 and 3-20 or consult the machine manufacturer for
additional information.
External Device Monitoring: It is strongly recommended that one
normally closed, forced-guided monitoring contact of each FSD
and MPCE be connected to EDM inputs (see Figures 3-18, 3-19,
and 3-20). If this is done, proper operation of the MPCEs will be
verified. Monitoring MPCE contacts is one method of maintaining
control reliability.
External Device Monitoring Hookup
If not connected previously, it is again strongly recommended that
one normally closed, forced-guided monitoring contact of each
FSD and MPCE be wired as shown in the monitoring circuit (see
Figures 3-18, 3-19, and 3-20). If this is done, proper operation of
the FSDs and MPCEs will be verified. Monitoring MPCE contacts
is one method of maintaining control reliability. (See the Note
Regarding External Device Monitoring below).
NOTE: External Device Monitoring and Control Reliability
Control Reliability (OSHA 29CFR1910.217, ANSI B11, and
ANSI/RIA R15.06) and Category 3 and 4 (ISO13849-1)
requirements demand that a single failure does not lead to the
loss of the safety function, or does not prevent a normal or
immediate stop from occurring. The failure or the fault must
be detected at or before the next demand of safety (e.g., at the
beginning or end of a cycle, or when a safeguard is actuated).
The safety-related function of the machine control then
must issue an immediate stop command or prevent the next
machine cycle or hazardous situation until the failure or fault is
corrected. The user must refer to the relevant standard(s) for
complete information.
A common method of satisfying these requirements is the use
of dual-channel control, as described in Section 3.5.2, with
External Device Monitoring, where a normally closed, forcedguided contact of each MPCE is wired as described in Section
3.5.3 and as shown in Figures 3-19 and 3-20.
Instruction Manual
Receiver pins 2 and 3 of the receiver terminal block provide
connection for the external device monitoring input. External
Device Monitoring (EDM) must be wired in one of three
configurations and must agree with the DIP switch EDM settings
on the receiver (see Section 4.2). One- and Two-Channel EDM
are used when the EZ-SCREEN OSSD outputs directly control the
energizing and de-energizing of the guarded machine’s MPCEs.
• One-Channel Monitoring is a series connection of closed
monitor contacts that are forced-guided (mechanically linked)
from each device controlled by the EZ-SCREEN. The monitoring
contacts should open within 200 milliseconds of the OSSD
outputs turning ON (a Clear condition) and should close within
200 milliseconds of the OSSD outputs turning OFF (a Blocked
condition) or a Lockout will occur (see Diagnostics, Section 5.1).
Refer to Figure 3-20 for One-Channel EDM hookup. Connect the
monitor contacts between +24V dc and EDM1 (pin 3). Leave
EDM2 (pin 2) open (no connection). Set the configuration DIP
switch to E1, per Section 4.2.
• Two-Channel Monitoring is a separate connection of closed
monitor contacts that are forced-guided (mechanically linked)
from each device controlled by the EZ-SCREEN. The monitoring
contacts should always change state (both open or both close)
within 200 milliseconds of the corresponding OSSD state change
(turning ON or OFF) or a Lockout will occur (see Diagnostics,
Section 5.1). Refer to Figures 3-18 or 3-19 for 2-channel EDM
hookup. Connect the monitor contacts as shown between +24V
dc and EDM1 (pin 3) and between +24V dc and EDM2 (pin 2).
Set the configuration DIP switch to E2, per Section 4.2.
• No Monitoring. Use this setting initially, in order to perform the
initial checkout; see Section 3.6. If No Monitoring is selected, the
user must ensure that any single failure of the external devices
does not result in a hazardous condition and, in such a case, a
successive machine cycle will be prevented (see Section 1.3,
Control Reliability). To configure the System for No Monitoring,
set the configuration DIP switch to E2, per Section 4.2, and
connect (using the supplied wire-nut) EDM1 (pin 3) to EDM2
(pin 2).
3.5.4 Optional Remote Test Input
A pair of connections is provided on 5-pin emitters (Test1 and
Test2) for the connection of an external remote test switch
(typically a normally open contact held closed). Opening this
switch “turns OFF” the emitter, simulating an interruption of the
light beams; all OSSD outputs will turn OFF. See Sections 2.7.2,
3.3.1, and Figure 3-17.

CAUTION . . . EDM Monitoring
If system is configured for “No Monitoring,” it
is the user’s responsibility to ensure that this
does not create a hazardous situation.

System Operation
EZ-SCREEN
Instruction Manual
4. System Operation
4.1 Security Protocol
Certain procedures for installing, maintaining and operating the
EZ-SCREEN system must be performed by either Designated
Persons or Qualified Persons.
A Designated Person is identified and designated in writing,
by the employer, as being appropriately trained and qualified to
perform system resets and the specified checkout procedures on
the EZ-SCREEN System. The Designated Person is empowered to:
• Perform manual resets and hold possession of the reset key
(see Section 4.3), and
• Perform the Daily Checkout Procedure (see Section 6).
A Qualified Person, by possession of a recognized degree or
certificate of professional training, or by extensive knowledge,
training and experience, has successfully demonstrated the ability
to solve problems relating to the installation of the EZ-SCREEN
System and its integration with the guarded machine. In addition
to everything for which the Designated Person is empowered, the
Qualified Person is empowered to:
• Install the EZ-SCREEN System,
Scan Code is used to allow operation of multiple pairs of
emitters and receivers in close proximity (see Sections 3.1.8 and
1.4.4). Scan Code may be set to 1 or 2, using the switch on the
configuration panel. The Scan Code setting for each emitter must
agree with its corresponding receiver. The Scan Code settings may
be changed while in RUN mode without causing a Lockout.
Trip or Latch Output operation is selected on two DIP switches
in the receiver configuration port; see Figure 4-1. Both switches
must be set to the same setting. If they have different settings, an
error code will be displayed.
If the switches are set for Trip Output (T), the System will autoreset. If the switches are set for Latch Output (L), the System will
require a manual reset.
External Device Monitoring (EDM): EDM mode is selected via a
2-position DIP switch in the receiver configuration port; see Figure
4-1. For 1-Channel Monitoring, set the EDM DIP switch to the
E1 position. For 2-Channel Monitoring or No Monitoring, set the
switch to the E2 position. See Section 3.5.3 for more information.
Reduced Resolution: Two-beam Reduced Resolution can be
enabled by selecting “RR” on both DIP switches as labeled.
NOTE: Enabling Reduced Resolution will affect the Minimum
Separation Distance, see Section 3.1.1.
• Perform all checkout procedures (see Section 6),
• Make changes to the internal configuration settings and
• Reset the System following a Lockout condition.
4.2 System Configuration Settings
If not previously configured, System settings are made on the
configuration panels located on each sensor, behind the access
cover. The access cover is opened by first removing the factoryinstalled security plate with the security hex wrench provided. It
is recommended that the security plate be re-installed after any
configuration changes. See Figure 4-1.
Because it has redundant microprocessors, the receiver has
two DIP switch banks (bank A and bank B) which must be set
identically (see Section 4.2). Failure to do so will cause a Lockout
condition when power is applied. Power to the EZ-SCREEN
receiver should be OFF when changing DIP switch settings or a
Lockout will occur.

After configuration settings are verified/set, the access cover must
be fully closed (snap shut) to maintain IP ratings. Other than
Scan Code, all configuration settings should be changed only
when the System is OFF.
NOTE: The corresponding pairs of DIP switches must be set
identically for the System to operate.

Instruction Manual
Accessing the Configuration Panel
To open the access cover for DIP switch configuration:
1. Remove the security plate using the special tool supplied.
2. Using a small flat blade screwdriver or the security plate tool,
push the plastic tab on the access cover inwards at a 45° angle.
3. Pivot the screwdriver against the bevel until the access cover
pops open.
4. To close the access cover, simply push cover into place (it will
“snap” into place). The access cover has been designed to be
removable, so if it should come off, simply snap it back onto
the hinge and close it.
5. If required, replace the security plate with tamper-resistant
screws provided, using the same supplied tool.
It is important to snap-close the cover to maintain the sensors’
IP 65 environmental rating. In the event an access cover is lost
or damaged, it can be re-ordered (see Section 2.5, Replacement
Parts). It is recommended for installations subject to shock and
vibration, that the security plate be reinstalled.
4.3 Reset Procedures
Resetting the System
System resets are performed using an external reset switch. This
switch must be located outside the guarded area, and must not
be within reach from within the guarded area (see Section 3.1.3).
Its location should provide a clear view of the entire safeguarded
area. If any hazardous areas are not in view from the switch
location, additional means of safeguarding must be provided.
The switch should be protected from accidental or unintended
actuation (e.g., through the use of rings or guards).
If supervisory control of the reset switch is required, a key switch
may be used, with the key kept in the possession of a Designated
or Qualified Person. Using a key switch will also provide some
level of personal control, since the key may be removed from
the switch. This will hinder a reset while the key is under the
control of an individual, but must not be relied upon solely to
guard against accidental or unauthorized reset. Spare keys in
the possession of others or additional personnel entering the
safeguarded area unnoticed may create a hazardous situation.
4.3.1 Receiver Resets
1. Remove
Security Plate
The EZ-SCREEN receiver has a Reset input, pin 8 (Violet wire),
that allows the System to be manually reset.
1
The EZ-SCREEN requires a manual reset to clear a Latch condition
and resume operation following a stop command. Internal Lockout
conditions also require a manual reset to return the System to
RUN mode after the failure has been corrected and the input
correctly cycled.
Receiver manual resets are required in the following situations:
2-3. Open Access
Cover
• Trip Output operation – only after a System Lockout (see
Section 5 for causes).
• Latch Output operation – at power-up, after each Latch condition
occurs, and after a System Lockout.
Reset Routine
2
3
Figure 4-2. Accessing the configuration switches
To reset the receiver, close the reset switch for 1/4 to 2 seconds,
then open the switch. (If reset switch model MGA-KS0-1, listed in
Section 2, is used, turn the key 1/4 turn clockwise to close; turn
counterclockwise, back to its original position, to open.)
NOTE: Closing the reset switch too long will cause the System to
ignore the reset request; the switch must be closed from
1/4 second to 2 seconds, but no longer.
4.3.2 Emitter Resets
In the rare occurrence that an emitter requires a reset, power the
sensor down, then power it up. Emitter resets are needed only if a
Lockout occurs.

Inverted Display
Some applications may require the emitter and receiver to be inverted
(with the status indicator ends at the “top”). To prevent difficulty in
monitoring the status display characters in such cases, the 7-segment
displays on EZ-SCREEN emitters and receivers can be inverted. To do
so, press the Invert Display push button (100 ms or longer) located
under the access cover on each sensor. See Figure 4-6.
A spare access cover with inverted label and an inverted label for the
display are provided in the hardware packets for each emitter and
receiver (or see Section 2.5 Replacement Parts). Remove the standard
access cover by removing the screw-on security plate and gently
pulling the cover out. Place the inverted label over the existing label on
the display (adjacent to the DIP switches) and snap the inverted-label
access cover into place; replace screw-on security plate if desired.

EZ-SCREEN
System Operation
4.5 Normal Operation
System Power-Up
The EZ-SCREEN will power up in one of two ways, depending on
the Trip/Latch Output configuration. If it is set for Trip Output, it
will power up and reset automatically; if it is set for Latch Output,
it will require a manual reset procedure after power-up and sensor
alignment.
Trip Output Power-Up: When power is applied, each sensor will
conduct self-tests to detect critical internal faults, determine
configuration settings, and prepare the EZ-SCREEN for operation.
(If either sensor detects a critical fault, scanning ceases, the
receiver outputs remain OFF and diagnostic information is
displayed through the sensor’s front window.) If no faults are
detected, the EZ-SCREEN will automatically enter Alignment
mode, with the receiver looking for an optical sync pattern from
the emitter. If the receiver is aligned and receiving the proper sync
pattern, it enters RUN mode and begins scanning to determine the
blocked or clear status of each beam. No manual reset operation
is required.
Latch Output Power-Up: When power is applied, each sensor
will conduct self-tests to detect critical internal faults, determine
configuration settings, and prepare the System for operation. (If
either sensor detects a critical fault, scanning ceases, the receiver
outputs remain OFF and diagnostic information is displayed
through the sensor’s front window.) If no faults are detected, the
EZ-SCREEN will automatically enter ALIGNMENT mode, with the
receiver looking for an optical sync pattern from the emitter. If
the receiver is aligned and receiving the proper sync pattern, it
begins scanning to determine the blocked or clear status of each
beam. When all beams are aligned, the Yellow Reset indicator will
double-flash to indicate the EZ-SCREEN is waiting for a manual
reset. After a valid manual reset, the EZ-SCREEN enters RUN
mode and continues scanning.
Instruction Manual
Internal Faults (Lockouts): If either sensor detects a critical fault,
scanning ceases, the receiver outputs turn OFF and diagnostic
information is displayed through the sensor’s front window. See
Section 5 for resolution of error/fault conditions.
4.6 Periodic Checkout Requirements
To ensure continued reliable operation, the System must be
checked out periodically.
At every shift change, power-up and machine setup change,
the Daily checkout should be performed; this checkout may be
performed by a Designated or Qualified Person (see Section 6.3
and the Daily Checkout Card for the procedure).
Semi-annually, the EZ-SCREEN and its interface to the guarded
machine should be thoroughly checked out; this checkout must
be performed by a Qualified Person (see Section 6.4). A copy of
these test results should be posted on or near the machine.
Whenever changes are made to the System (either a new
configuration of the EZ-SCREEN or changes to the machine), the
Commissioning Checkout should be performed (see Section 6.2).
!
WARNING . . . Verify Proper Operation
It is the user’s responsibility to verify proper
operation, on a regular basis, as instructed in
Section 6. Failure to correct such problems can
result in serious bodily injury or death.
During RUN Mode
Trip Output Configuration: If any beams become blocked while
the EZ-SCREEN is running with Trip Output selected, the receiver
outputs turn OFF within the stated EZ-SCREEN response time (see
Specifications). If all the beams then become clear, the receiver
outputs come back ON. No resets of any kind are needed. All
required machine control resets are provided by the machine
control circuit.
Latch Output Configuration: If any beams become blocked
while the EZ-SCREEN is running with Latch Output selected, the
receiver outputs turn OFF within the stated EZ-SCREEN response
time (see Specifications). If all the beams then become clear, the
receiver Zone indicators will all be Green and the Reset indicator
will single-flash, indicating the EZ-SCREEN is waiting for a manual
latch reset. In Latch Output operation, the outputs come back ON
only when all beams are clear and after a manual reset. The EZSCREEN will wait for a manual reset; when a valid reset signal is
received and all beams remain clear, the receiver outputs turn ON.

EZ-SCREEN
Instruction Manual
5. Troubleshooting and Maintenance
5.1 Troubleshooting Lockout Conditions
Evaluate status indicators per Section 4.4. See Section 5.2 for Test
mode indication.
A Lockout condition causes all of the EZ-SCREEN OSSD outputs
to turn or remain OFF, sending a stop signal to the guarded
machine. Each sensor provides diagnostic error codes to assist
in the identification of the cause(s) of lockouts (see Sections
5.1.1 and 5.1.2 or the Diagnostic Error Code label supplied in the
documentation pack).
The System provides easy methods for determining operating
problems. A Lockout condition is indicated by the following:

!
WARNING . . . Lockouts and Power
Failures
Power failures and Lockout conditions
are indication of a problem and must be investigated
immediately by a Qualified Person. Attempts to continue to
operate machinery by bypassing the EZ-SCREEN or other
safeguards is dangerous and could result in serious bodily
injury or death.
!
WARNING . . . Shut Down Machinery
Before Servicing
The machinery to which the EZ-SCREEN is
connected must not be operating at any time during major
service or maintenance. This may require lockout/tagout
procedures (refer to OSHA1910.147, ANSI Z244-1, or the
appropriate standard for controlling hazardous energy).
Servicing the EZ-SCREEN while the hazardous machinery
is operational could result in serious bodily injury or
death.
Recovery Procedures
To recover from a Lockout condition, all errors must be corrected
and a single sensor reset sequence must be performed as
described below.
Receiver Reset
Close the receiver Reset switch for 1/4 to 2 seconds and then
open the switch (per Section 4.3), or power the sensor down, wait
a second or two, then power it up.
NOTE: If the power down/up method is used and the EZ-SCREEN
is set for Latch Output, a manual reset, as described in
Section 4.3, is required to resume full operation.
Emitter Reset
Power the sensor down, wait a second or two, and then power it
up.

Troubleshooting and Maintenance
EZ-SCREEN
Instruction Manual
5.3 Electrical and Optical Noise
5.4 Servicing and Maintenance
The EZ-SCREEN is designed and manufactured to be highly
resistant to electrical and optical noise and to operate reliably in
industrial settings. However, serious electrical and/or optical noise
may cause a random Trip or Latch condition. In very extreme
electrical noise cases, a Lockout is possible. In order to minimize
the effects of transitory noise, the EZ-SCREEN will respond to
noise only if the noise is detected on multiple consecutive scans.
Cleaning
If random nuisance Trips occur, check the following:
EZ-SCREEN components are designed for reliability. Do not
open the emitter or receiver housings, other than to access for
configuration. They contain no field-replaceable components. If
repair is necessary, do not attempt to repair an emitter or receiver
yourself; return the unit to the factory.
• Poor connection between the sensor and earth ground;
• Optical interference from adjacent light screens or other
photoelectrics; or
• Sensor input or output wires routed too close to “noisy” wiring.
Checking for sources of electrical noise: It is very important
that the light screen sensors have a good earth ground. Without
this, the System can act like an antenna and random Trips and
Lockouts can occur.
All EZ-SCREEN wiring is low voltage; running these wires
alongside power wires, motor/servo wires, or other high-voltage
wiring, can inject noise into the EZ-SCREEN system. It is good
wiring practice (and may be required by code) to isolate
EZ-SCREEN wires from high-voltage wires.
The Banner model BT-1 Beam Tracker (see Section 2.4) is a very
good tool for detecting electrical noise. It can be used to detect
electrical transient spikes and surges. Cover the lens of the BT1 with electrical tape to block optical light from getting into the
receiver lens. Press the “RCV” button on the BT-1 and position the
Beam Tracker on the wires going to the EZ-SCREEN or any other
nearby wires. Noise caused by the switching of inductive loads
should be addressed by installing proper transient suppression
across the load.
Checking for sources of optical noise: Turn off the emitter,
completely block the emitter, or open the Test input, then use a
Banner BT-1 Beam Tracker to check for light at the receiver. Press
the “RCV” button on the BT-1 and move it across the full length of
the receiver’s sensing window. If the BT-1’s indicator lights, check
for light from other sources (other safety light screens, screens or
points, or standard photoelectric sensors) by “tracking down” the
emitted light from them.
EZ-SCREEN emitters and receivers are constructed of aluminum
with a yellow painted finish and are rated IP65. Lens covers
are acrylic. Emitters and receivers are best cleaned using mild
detergent or window cleaner and a soft cloth. Avoid cleaners
containing alcohol, as they may damage the acrylic lens covers.

Checkout Procedures
EZ-SCREEN
Instruction Manual
6. Checkout Procedures
Study each procedure in its entirety, to understand each step
thoroughly before beginning. Refer all questions to the Banner
applications engineering department at the address or numbers
listed on the cover of this manual. Checkouts must be performed
as detailed in Section 6.1 below and results should be recorded
and kept in the appropriate place (e.g., near the machine, and/or
in a technical file).
6.1 Schedule of Checkouts
Trip Test: The procedure for EZ-SCREEN trip test is described in
Section 3.4.4. This procedure must be performed at installation,
and at any time the EZ-SCREEN, the guarded machine, or any part
of the application is installed or altered. The procedure must be
performed by a Qualified Person.
Commissioning Checkout: The procedure described in Section
6.2 must be performed at installation or whenever changes are
made to the System (either a new configuration of the EZ-SCREEN
or changes to the machine). The procedure must be performed by
a Qualified Person.
Shift/Daily Checkout: The procedure for “daily” checkout of the
EZ-SCREEN is described on the supplied Daily Checkout card
(Banner p/n 113361 for SLS.. models, P/N 118173 for SLSC..
models). Daily Checkout is to be performed at each shift change
or machine setup change, whenever the System is powered up
— at least daily. The procedure is listed on the Daily Checkout
card and may be performed by a Designated Person or a Qualified
Person.
Semi-Annual Checkout: The procedure for initial checkout of
the EZ-SCREEN System is to be performed every six months,
following installation. The procedure is listed on the Semi-Annual
Checkout card (Banner P/N 113362) and must be performed by a
Qualified Person.
6.2 Commissioning Checkout
Perform this checkout procedure as part of the EZ-SCREEN
installation (after it has been interfaced to the guarded machine
as described in Section 3.5), or whenever changes are made
to the System (either a new configuration of the EZ-SCREEN
or changes to the machine). A Qualified Person (as defined in
Section 4.1) must perform the procedure; checkout results should
be recorded and kept on or near the guarded machine as required
by applicable standards.
To prepare the System for this checkout:
1. Examine the guarded machine to verify that it is of a type and
design compatible with the EZ-SCREEN. See Section 1.2 for a
list of misapplications.
2. Verify that the EZ-SCREEN is configured for the intended
application (see Section 4.2).
3. Verify that the minimum separation distance from the closest
danger point of the guarded machine to the defined area is
not less than the calculated distance, per Section 3.1.1 of this
manual.
4. Verify that:
• Access to any dangerous parts of the guarded machine is not
possible from any direction not protected by the EZ-SCREEN,
hard guarding, or supplemental safeguarding, and
• It is not possible for a person to stand between the defined
area and the dangerous parts of the machine, or
• Supplemental safeguarding and hard guarding, as described
by the appropriate safety standards, are in place and
functioning properly in any space (between the defined area
and any hazard) which is large enough to allow a person to
stand undetected by the EZ-SCREEN (see Sections 3.1.2 and
3.1.4).
5. Verify that all reset switches are mounted outside and in full
view of the guarded area, out of reach of anyone inside the
guarded area, and that means of preventing inadvertent use is
in place (see Section 3.1.3).
6. Examine the electrical wiring connections between the
EZ-SCREEN FSD outputs and the guarded machine’s control
elements to verify that the wiring meets the requirements stated
in Section 3.5.
7. Inspect the area near the defined area (including work pieces
and the guarded machine) for reflective surfaces (see Section
3.1.6). Remove the reflective surfaces if possible by relocating
them, painting, masking or roughening them. Remaining
problem reflections will become apparent during the Trip Test
in step 11.
8. Apply power to the EZ-SCREEN System. Verify that power to
the guarded machine is OFF. Remove all obstructions from the
defined area. If the EZ-SCREEN is configured for Manual PowerUp, the Yellow Status indicator will be double-flashing. Perform
a manual reset (close the reset switch for 1/4 to 2 seconds,
then open the switch).

10. A Blocked condition indicates that one or more of the beams
is misaligned or interrupted. To correct this situation see the
Alignment procedure in Section 3.4. If the system is in a Latch
condition, perform a manual reset.
11. Once the Green and Yellow Status indicators are ON, perform
the trip test (described in Section 3.4.4) on each sensing
field to verify proper System operation and to detect possible
optical short circuits or reflection problems. Do not continue
until the EZ-SCREEN System passes the trip test. Do not
expose any individual to any hazard during the following
checks.
!
WARNING . . . Before Applying Power
to the Machine
Verify that the guarded area is clear of personnel
and unwanted materials (such as tools) before applying
power to the guarded machine. Failure to do so could result
in serious bodily injury or death.
12. Apply power to the guarded machine and verify that the
machine does not start up. Interrupt (block) the defined
area with the appropriate supplied test piece (see table in
Section 3.4.4) and verify that it is not possible for the guarded
machine to be put into motion while the beam(s) is blocked.
13. Initiate machine motion of the guarded machine and, while
it is moving, use the supplied test piece to block the defined
area. Do not attempt to insert the test piece into the
dangerous parts of the machine. Upon blocking any beam,
the dangerous parts of the machine should come to a stop
with no apparent delay.
Remove the test piece from the beam; verify that the machine
does not automatically restart, and that the initiation devices
must be engaged to restart the machine.
14. Remove electrical power to the EZ-SCREEN. Both OSSD
outputs should immediately turn OFF, and the machine should
not be capable of starting until power is re-applied to the
EZ-SCREEN.
15. Test the machine stopping response time, using an instrument
designed for that purpose, to verify that it is the same or less
than the overall system response time specified by the machine
manufacturer. (Banner’s applications engineering department
can recommend a suitable instrument.)
Do not continue operation until the entire checkout procedure is
complete and all problems are corrected.
!
WARNING . . . Do Not Use Machine
Until System Is Working Properly
If any of these checks cannot be verified, do
not attempt to use the EZ-SCREEN/guarded machine until
the defect or problem has been corrected (see Section 5).
Attempts to use the guarded machine under such
conditions could result in serious bodily injury or death.
6.3 Shift/Daily Checkout
Perform the procedure contained on the Daily Checkout card
at every shift change, power-up and machine set-up change.
During continuous machine run periods, this checkout should
be performed at intervals not to exceed 24 hours.
A Designated Person or Qualified Person (as defined in the Safety
Glossary) must perform the procedure. A copy of checkout
results should be recorded and kept in the appropriate place (e.g.,
near or on the machine, in the machine’s technical file).

Instruction Manual
7. Cascadeable EZ-SCREEN
7.1 Overview of Cascading
EZ-SCREEN emitters and receivers are also available in
cascadeable models. These models can be used as stand-alone
light screens, or can be cascaded up to four systems; see Figure
7-1. The cascaded sensor pairs can be any length, any number of
beams, or have different resolutions
(i.e., 14 mm and 30 mm), as long as each emitter matches
its own receiver.
NOTE: EZ-SCREEN SLS models (with Inverted Display) can
be used as the end sensor pair. EZ-SCREEN Grid/Point
systems and PICO-GUARD systems can not be interfaced
with the Cascade Input.
The control reliability, installation and alignment, electrical interface
to the guarded machine, initial checkout, periodic checkout,
troubleshooting and maintenance features of cascadeable models
are functionally identical to those of the standard models.
Electrical connections are made through M12 (or Euro-style) quickdisconnects. The emitter has an 8-pin connector for power and
ground. Optional 5-pin emitters with TEST are available.
The receiver has an 8-pin connector for power, ground, reset, EDM
#1 and #2, and OSSD #1 and #2. All systems in a cascade are
activating the same set of OSSD outputs, which are the OSSDs of
the master receiver.
NOTE: In a cascaded system, all receivers are connected
together, and all emitters are connected together.

Cascadeable EZ-SCREEN
7.5 Response Time for Cascaded Light Screens
Response time is an important factor in determining a light
screen’s separation (safety) distance. For cascaded (or “daisychained”) EZ-SCREEN systems, that response time is dependent
on the number of light screens, the number of beams in the light
screens, and their positions in the cascade. It can be calculated
easily, in two ways:
• Individually for each light screen in the cascade (separation
distance is calculated for each light screen in the cascade), or
• Based on the worst-case time for the entire cascade (all light
screens in the cascade have the same separation distance).
Individual Response Time and Separation Distance
When calculating individual separation distance for each emitter/
receiver pair, the pair’s position in the cascade impacts its
response time, which then impacts its separation distance. This
method results in the closest possible separation distance for
each light screen.
Response time depends on how far “downstream” the light
screen is from the machine control. Each light screen position in
the cascade, starting from the first light screen in the cascade,
increases the light screen’s response time by 2 ms.
EZ-SCREEN
Instruction Manual
Overall Response Time and Separation Distance
The cascaded system’s Overall Response Time (Tr) is equal to the
response time of the individual sensor pair with the most beams
(i.e., the slowest individual response time), plus an adder resulting
from the number of systems in the cascade. Tr can be found by the
following formula:
Tr = Tr(max) + [(N-1) x 2 ms]
where:
Tr(max) is the response time of the slowest individual pair in the
cascade (i.e., the pair with the most beams; see Section 7.2).
N is the number of sensor pairs in the cascade.
Use this Tr value in the formula in Section 3.1.1 to determine
Overall Separation Distance (Ds). This will ensure that all sensor
pairs will be located at an adequate distance from the hazard, no
matter how the system is installed.

Figure 7-5 depicts a four-pair cascaded system. The 14 mm
resolution, 300 mm EZ-SCREEN emitter/receiver pairs each begin
with a response time of 15 ms. The pair in position #1 (connected
directly to the machine control), maintains its
15 ms response time. Response time for the second pair in the
cascade circuit increases by 2 ms, to 17 ms; for the third pair by 4
ms, to 19 ms, and for the fourth pair by 6 ms, to
21 ms. The formula used for U.S. applications (other standards
may apply) to calculate separation distance for individual
placement of each emitter/receiver pair in the cascaded system is:
Position #1: Ds = K (Ts + Tr) + Dpf
Position #2: Ds = K (Ts + Tr + 2 ms) + Dpf
Position #3: Ds = K (Ts + Tr + 4 ms) + Dpf
Position #4: Ds = K (Ts + Tr + 6 ms) + Dpf

Cascade Configuration vs. Response Time
When light screens of different lengths or different resolutions
(and therefore different response times) are used in one circuit,
their positions in the cascade may become a consideration.
For example, consider the light screen circuits depicted in Figure
7-6. Each example contains three safety light screens, one 1200
mm (with a response time of 40 ms), and two 300 mm light
screens (15 ms response each). Depending on their placement in
the cascade, the individual response time for the same three light
screens can vary from 40 to 44 ms.

7.6 Cascaded Sensor Configuration Settings
Setting cascaded sensors for scan code, trip or latch output,
external device monitoring (EDM), reduced resolution, fixed
blanking and inverted display is identical to the procedure for noncascadeable emitters and receivers (see Section 4).
Scan codes for each emitter and receiver pair must match.
However, for cascaded installations, scan codes must alternate on
adjacent systems as described in Section 3.1.8 and Figure 3-8.
See warning below.
While the scan code, reduced resolution, fixed blanking, and
inverted display settings are independent for each cascaded
sensor pair, the trip/latch mode and EDM settings must be
determined by the first receiver in the cascade (closest to the
machine interface), which controls the OSSD outputs. All other
receivers in the cascade must be set for trip mode and 2channel EDM (factory default settings).
The settings on the first receiver then determine trip or latch
mode and 1- or 2-channel EDM, and this is the only receiver that
requires a reset following a latch condition.
7.6.1 Fixed Blanking
One or more areas within any cascaded EZ-SCREEN sensor pair
can be blanked out, just as with other EZ-SCREEN light screens.
Each sensor pair within a cascade must be programmed
separately, if required. See Section 3.4.3 for more information
and programming procedure.
7.7 Programming for Cascaded Operation
Each cascaded system must be programmed, before it can be run
in a production environment.
Before programming, install all emitters and receivers per
Sections 3 and 7. The last receiver must be terminated either
with a terminator plug or by connecting two closed mechanical
contacts (see Sections 7.8 and 7.9).
!
WARNING . . . Scan Code
In situations where multiple systems are
mounted closely together, or where a secondary
emitter is in view (within ±5°), within range of an adjacent
receiver; the adjacent systems must be configured for
different Scan Codes (i.e., one system set for Scan Code 1
and the other for Scan Code 2).
If not, a receiver may synchronize to the signal from the
wrong emitter, reducing the safety function of the light
screen.
EZ-SCREEN
Instruction Manual
Perform the following procedure on the first receiver only in the
cascade (closest to the machine interface).
1. From either normal operation or a power OFF condition, set the
second and fifth DIP switches (T/L and RR) both to the left (T
and RR position).
2. Set the third and fourth DIP switches (the second T/L and RR)
both to the right (L and OFF position); see Figure 7-7.
3. The receiver should be in a lockout condition or power OFF.
4. If power is OFF: Apply power
Lockout condition: Perform a valid reset sequence (close the
reset switch for 0.25 to 2 seconds, then reopen.
5. Coming out of lockout or during startup, the DIP switch
configuration will be recognized as Cascaded Teach Mode,
indicated by the following:
• First receiver display shows
No E-stop connected: “4C,” “3C,” or “2C” ON steady
E-stop w/closed contacts: “4CE,” “3CE,” or “2CE” ON steady
E-stop w/open contacts: “4CE,” “3CE” or “2CE” flashing
• Last cascaded receiver display shows
Terminator connected: “1C” ON steady
E-stop w/closed contacts: “1CE” ON steady
E-stop w/open contacts:“1CE” flashing
• Other receivers display “1C” ON steady
• All receiver Zone indicators OFF
• All receiver Yellow reset indicators OFF
• All receiver Status indicators solid red
6. To enable and exit Cascade Teach Mode, reconfigure DIP
switches for normal operation.
7. Perform a valid reset sequence (see Step 4), or cycle power.
1. Install cascade system per
Sections 3 and 7
With Power ON:
2. Set T/L and RR switches as
shown on first receiver only
3. Press the Reset button or cycle
power
4. Reconfigure DIP switches for

7.8 Emergency Stop Buttons and Rope/Cable Pulls
Cascadeable EZ-SCREEN receivers may be connected to one or
more E-stop buttons. The button(s) must connect to the end of the
last receiver in the cascade, in place of the terminator plug.
The connected E-stop button(s) will activate/deactivate the OSSD
outputs in all receivers in the cascade.
The number of E-stop buttons allowed in a series connection is
limited by the total resistance per channel. The total resistance is
the sum of all contact resistance values in the channel, plus the
total wire resistance in the channel. The maximum total resistance
per channel is 100 Ohms.
NOTE: The simultaneity between the two E-stop contacts, on
opening and closing, is 3 seconds. If simultaneity is not
met on either opening or closing, the first receiver’s display
will flash “|---|.” If simultaneity is not met on opening,
the closed contact can be opened later (after more than 3
seconds), then both contacts must be closed again.

to the same EZ-SCREEN receiver, the contacts of the
E-stop switches must be connected together in series. This
series combination is then wired to the respective
EZ-SCREEN receiver input.
ever connect the contacts of multiple E-stop switches in
N
parallel to the EZ-SCREEN inputs; this defeats the switch
contact monitoring ability of the EZ-SCREEN light curtain,
and creates an unsafe condition which could result in
serious bodily injury or death.
•A
lso, when two or more E-stop switches are used, each
switch must be individually actuated (engaged), then
re-armed and the EZ-SCREEN light curtain reset (if using
latch mode). This allows the monitoring circuits to check
each switch and its wiring to detect faults. Failure to test
each switch individually in this manner could result in
undetected faults and create an unsafe condition which
could result in serious bodily injury or death.

WARNING . . . Emergency Stop Functions
If Cascade Input is used for an Emergency Stop
function, do not mute or bypass the safety
outputs (OSSDs) of the EZ-SCREEN. NFPA79 requires that
the Emergency Stop function remain active at all times.
Muting or bypassing the safety outputs will render the
Emergency Stop function ineffective.
As shown in Figure 7-8, the E-stop switch must provide two
contact pairs, which are closed when the switch is in the “armed”
position. Once activated, the E-stop switch must open its contacts
and return to the closed-contact position only after deliberate
action (such as twisting, pulling, or unlocking). The switch
should be a “positive-opening type,” as described by IEC9475-1. A mechanical force applied to such a button (or switch)
is transmitted directly to the contacts, forcing them open. This
ensures that the switch contacts will open whenever the switch
is activated. ANSI/NFPA 79 specifies the following additional
requirements:
• Emergency Stop push buttons shall be located at each operator
control station and at other operating stations where emergency
shutdown shall be required.
• Stop and Emergency Stop push buttons shall be continuously
operable from all control and operating stations where located.
• Actuators of Emergency Stop devices shall be colored Red. The
background immediately around the device actuator shall be
colored Yellow. The actuator of a push-button-operated device
shall be of the palm or mushroom-head type.
• The Emergency Stop actuator shall be a self-latching type.
NOTE: Some applications may have additional requirements. The
user must comply with all relevant regulations.

7.9 Positive-Opening Safety Interlock Switches
The Cascade input may be used to monitor interlock safety gates
or guards. Requirements vary widely for the level of control
reliability or safety category (per ISO 13849-1) in the application
of interlocked guards. While Banner Engineering recommends the
highest level of safety in any application, it is the responsibility of
the user to safely install, operate, and maintain each safety system
and comply with all relevant laws and regulations. Of the following
applications, Figure 7-9 meets or exceeds the requirements for
OSHA control reliability and Safety Category 4, per ISO 13849-1.
WARNING . . . Unguarded Moving Parts
It must not be possible for personnel to reach
any hazard point through an opened guard
(or any opening) before hazardous machine motion has
completely stopped.
Please reference OSHA CFR1910.217, ANSI B11 standards,
or other appropriate standards for information on
determining safety distances and safe opening sizes for your
application (see Inside back cover).
EZ-SCREEN
Instruction Manual
The safety switches and actuators used with the Cascade must
be designed and installed so that they cannot be easily defeated.
They must be mounted securely, so that their physical position
can not shift, using reliable fasteners that require a tool to remove.
Mounting slots in the housings are for initial adjustment only; final
mounting holes must be used for permanent location.
Positive-Opening Interlocking Safety Switches
Two individually mounted safety interlock switches are
recommended for each guard to meet safety category 4, per ISO
13849-1, and must satisfy several requirements. Each switch must
provide at minimum, one normally closed (N/C) electrically isolated
contact to interface with the Cascade input (see Figure 7-9).
The contacts must be of “positive-opening” design, with one or
more normally closed contacts rated for safety. Positive-opening
operation causes the switch to be forced open, without the use of
springs, when the switch actuator is disengaged or moved from
its home position (see the Banner Safety Catalog for examples). In
addition, the switches must be mounted in a “positive mode” to
move/disengage the actuator from its home position and open the
normally closed contact when the guard opens.
Open
Interlock Guarding Requirements
The following general requirements and considerations apply to
the installation of interlocked gates and guards for the purpose
of safeguarding. In addition, the user must refer to the relevant
regulations to be sure to comply with all necessary requirements.
Hazards guarded by the interlocked guard must be prevented from
operating until the guard is closed; a Stop command must be
issued to the guarded machine if the guard opens while the hazard
is present. Closing the guard must not, by itself, initiate hazardous
motion; a separate procedure must be required to initiate the
motion. The safety switches must not be used as a mechanical or
end-of-travel stop.
The guard must be located an adequate distance from the danger
zone (so the hazard has time to stop before the guard is opened
sufficiently to provide access to the hazard), and it must open
either laterally or away from the hazard, not into the safeguarded
area. Depending on the application, an interlocked gate or door
should not be able to close by itself and activate the interlocking
circuitry (ANSI/RIA R15.06). In addition, the installation must
prevent personnel from reaching over, under, around, or through
the guard to the hazard. Any openings in the guard must not allow
access to the hazard (see OSHA 29CFR1910.217 Table O-10 or
the appropriate standard). The guard must be strong enough and
designed to protect personnel and contain hazards within the
guarded area, which may be ejected, dropped, or emitted by the
machine.
NOTE: This application is
considered to meet or
exceed requirements for
OSHA control reliability
and Safety categories 4
per ISO13849-1.

Cascadeable EZ-SCREEN
EZ-SCREEN
Instruction Manual
7.9.1 Monitoring Series-Connected Positive-Opening
Safety Switches
When monitoring two individually mounted safety switches (as
shown in Figure 7-9), a faulty switch will be detected if it fails
to switch as the guard opens. In this case, the EZ-SCREEN
will de-energize its OSSD output and disable its reset function
until the input requirements are met (i.e., the faulty switch is
replaced). However, when a series of interlocking safety switches
is monitored by the EZ-SCREEN, the failure of one switch in the
system may be masked or not detected at all (refer to Figure 7-10).
Series-connected, positive-opening interlock switch circuits do not
meet ISO 13849-1 Safety Category 4 and may not meet Control
Reliability requirements because of the potential of an inappropriate
reset or a potential loss of the safety stop signal. A multiple
connection of this type should not be used in applications where
loss of the safety stop signal or an inappropriate reset could lead
to serious injury or death. The following two scenarios assume two
positive-opening safety switches on each guard:
1.Masking of a failure. If a guard is opened but a switch fails to
open, the redundant safety switch will open and cause the
EZ-SCREEN to de-energize its outputs. If the faulty guard is then
closed, both Cascade input channels also close, but because
one channel did not open, the EZ-SCREEN will not reset.
However, if the faulty switch is not replaced and a second
“good” guard is cycled (opening and then closing both of the
cascade input channels), the EZ-SCREEN considers the failure to
be corrected. With the input requirements apparently satisfied,
Open
Open
the EZ-SCREEN allows a reset. This system is no longer
redundant and, if the second switch fails, may result in an
unsafe condition (i.e., the accumulation of faults results in the
loss of the safety function).
2. Non-detection of a failure. If a good guard is opened, the
EZ-SCREEN de-energizes its outputs (a normal response). But if
a faulty guard is then opened and closed before the good guard
is re-closed, the failure on the faulty guard is not detected. This
system also is no longer redundant and may result in a loss of
safety if the second safety switch fails to switch when needed.
The circuits in either scenario do not inherently comply with
the safety standard requirements of detecting single faults and
preventing the next cycle. In multiple-guard systems using seriesconnected positive-opening safety switches, it is important to
periodically check the functional integrity of each interlocked guard
individually. Operators, maintenance personnel, and others
associated with the operation of the machine must be trained
to recognize such failures and be instructed to correct them
immediately.
Open and close each guard separately while verifying that the
EZ-SCREEN outputs operate correctly throughout the check
procedure. Follow each gate closure with a manual reset, if needed.
If a contact set fails, the EZ-SCREEN will not enable its reset
function. If the EZ-SCREEN does not reset, a switch may have
failed; that switch must be immediately replaced.
This check must be performed and all faults must be cleared, at a
minimum, during periodic checkouts. If the application can not
exclude these types of failures and such a failure could result
in serious injury or death, then the safety switches must not be
connected in series.

WARNING . . . Not a Safety Category 4 Application
When monitoring multiple guards with a series connection of multiple safety interlock switches, a single
failure may be masked or not detected at all.
When such a configuration is used, procedures must be performed regularly to verify proper operation of each switch.
See “Monitoring Series-Connected Positive-Opening Safety Switches” (Section 7.9.1) for more information. Failure to do
so could result in serious injury or death.

Glossary of Terms
Instruction Manual
Glossary of Terms
ANSI (American National Standards Institute): Acronym for the
American National Standards Institute, an association of industry
representatives that develops technical standards (including
safety standards). These standards comprise a consensus from a
variety of industries on good practice and design. ANSI standards
relevant to application of safety products include the ANSI B11
Series, and ANSI/RIA R15.06. See “Safety Standards” on inside
back cover.
Auto Power-Up: A safety light screen system feature that enables
the system to be powered up into RUN mode (or recover from a
power interruption) without requiring a manual reset.
Blanking: A programmable feature of a safety light screen system
which allows the light screen to ignore certain objects located
within the defined area. See fixed blanking, Floating Blanking, and
Reduced Resolution.
Blocked Condition: A condition that occurs when an opaque
object of sufficient size blocks/interrupts one or more light screen
beams. When a blocked condition occurs, OSSD1 and OSSD2
outputs simultaneously turn off within the system response time.
Brake: A mechanism for stopping, slowing, or preventing motion.
Cascade: Series connection (or “daisy-chaining”) of multiple
emitters and receivers.
CE: Abbreviation for “Conformité Européenne” (French translation
of “European Conformity”). The CE mark on a product or machine
establishes its compliance with all relevant European Union (EU)
Directives and the associated safety standards.
Clutch: A mechanism that, when engaged, transmits torque to
impart motion from a driving member to a driven member.
Control Reliability: A method of ensuring the performance
integrity of a control system or device. Control circuits are
designed and constructed so that a single failure or fault within
the system does not prevent the normal stopping action from
being applied to the machine when required, or does not create
unintended machine action, but does prevent initiation of
successive machine action until the failure is corrected.
CSA: Abbreviation for Canadian Standards Association, a testing
agency similar to Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) in the
United States. A CSA-certified product has been type-tested and
approved by the Canadian Standards Association as meeting
electrical and safety codes.
Defined Area: The “screen of light” generated by a safety light
screen system, defined by the height and the separation distance
of the emitter and receiver. When the defined area is interrupted
by an opaque object of a specified cross section, a Trip or Latch
condition results.
Designated Person: An individual identified and designated in
writing, by the employer, as being appropriately trained and
qualified to perform a specified checkout procedure. (See Qualified
Person.)
Emitter: The light-emitting component of a safety light screen
system, consisting of a row of synchronized modulated LEDs. The
emitter, together with the receiver (placed opposite), creates a
“screen of light” called the defined area.
External Device Monitoring (EDM): A means by which a safety
device (such as a safety light screen) actively monitors the state
(or status) of external devices that may be controlled by the safety
device. A lockout of the safety device will result if an unsafe state
is detected in the external device. External device(s) may include,
but are not limited to: MPCEs, captive contact relays/contactors,
and safety modules.
Failure to Danger: A failure which delays or prevents a machine
safety system from arresting dangerous machine motion, thereby
increasing risk to personnel.
Final Switching Device (FSD): The component of the machine’s
safety-related control system that interrupts the circuit to the
machine primary control element (MPCE) when the output signal
switching device (OSSD) goes to the OFF-state.
Fixed Blanking: A programming feature that allows a safety light
screen system to ignore objects (such as brackets or fixtures)
which will always be present at a specific location within the
defined area. The presence of these objects will not cause the
system’s safety outputs (e.g., Final Switching Devices) to trip or
latch. If any fixed objects are moved within or removed from the
defined area, a Lockout condition results.
Floating Blanking: See Reduced Resolution.
FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis): A testing procedure
by which potential failure modes in a system are analyzed to
determine their results or effects on the system. Component
failure modes that produce either no effect or a Lockout condition
are permitted; failures which cause an unsafe condition (a failure
to danger) are not. Banner safety products are extensively FMEA
tested.

Guarded Machine: The machine whose point of operation is
guarded by the safety system.
Hard Guard: Screens, bars, or other mechanical barriers affixed to
the frame of the machine intended to prevent entry by personnel
into the hazardous area(s) of a machine, while allowing the point
of operation to be viewed. The maximum size of openings is
determined by the applicable standard, such as Table O-10 of
OSHA 29CFR1910.217, also called a “fixed barrier guard.”
Hazardous Area: An area that poses an immediate or impending
physical hazard.
Hazard Point: The closest reachable point of the hazardous area.
Internal Lockout: A Lockout condition that is due to an internal
safety system problem. Generally, indicated by the red Status
indicator LED (only) flashing. Requires the attention of a Qualified
Person.
Key Reset (Manual Reset): A key-operated switch used to reset
a safety light screen system to RUN mode following a Lockout
condition, or to enable machine operation following a Latch
condition. Also refers to the act of using the switch.
Latch Condition: The response of the safety light screen Safety
Outputs (e.g., OSSDs) when an object equal to or greater than the
diameter of the specified test piece enters the defined area. In a
Latch condition, safety outputs simultaneously de-energize and
open their contacts. The contacts are held (latched) open until
the object is removed from the defined area and a manual reset
is performed. A latching output is used most often in perimeter
guarding applications. (See Trip Condition.)
Lockout Condition: A safety light screen condition that is
automatically attained in response to certain failure signals
(an internal lockout). When a Lockout condition occurs, the
safety light screen’s safety outputs turn OFF; the failure must be
corrected and a manual reset is required to return the system to
RUN mode.
Machine Primary Control Element (MPCE): An electrically
powered element, external to the safety system, which directly
controls the machine’s normal operating motion in such a way
that the element is last (in time) to operate when machine motion
is either initiated or arrested.
Machine Response Time: The time between the activation of a
machine stopping device and the instant when the dangerous
parts of the machine reach a safe state (are brought to rest).
Minimum Object Sensitivity (MOS): The minimum-diameter
object that a safety light screen system can reliably detect.
Objects of this diameter or greater will be detected anywhere in
the defined area. A smaller object can pass undetected through
the light if it passes exactly midway between two adjacent light
beams. Also known as MODS (Minimum Object Detection Size).
See also Specified Test Piece.
Glossary of Terms
Muting: The automatic suspension of the safeguarding function
of a safety device during a non-hazardous portion of the machine
cycle.
OFF State: The state in which the output circuit is interrupted and
does not permit the flow of current.
ON State: The state in which the output circuit is complete and
permits the flow of current.
OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration): A U.S.
Federal agency, Division of the U.S. Department of Labor, that is
responsible for the regulation of workplace safety.
OSSD: Output Signal Switching Device. The safety outputs that are
used to initiate a stop signal.
Part-Revolution Clutch: A type of clutch that may be engaged or
disengaged during the machine cycle. Part-revolution clutched
machines use a clutch/brake mechanism, which can arrest
machine motion at any point in the stroke or cycle.
Pass-Through Hazard: A situation that may exist when personnel
pass through a safeguard (at which point the hazard stops or is
removed), and then continue into the guarded area. At this point
the safeguard may not be able to prevent an unexpected start or
restart of the machine with personnel within the guarded area.
Point of Operation: The location of a machine where material or
a workpiece is positioned and a machine function is performed
upon it.
PSDI (Presence-Sensing Device Initiation): An application in
which a presence-sensing device is used to actually start the cycle
of a machine. In a typical situation, an operator manually positions
a part in the machine for the operation. When the operator moves
out of the danger area, the presence-sensing device starts the
machine (no start switch is used). The machine cycle runs to
completion, and the operator can then insert a new part and
start another cycle. The presence-sensing device continually
guards the machine. Single-break mode is used when the part
is automatically ejected after the machine operation. Doublebreak mode is used when the part is both inserted (to begin the
operation) and removed (after the operation) by the operator.
PSDI is commonly confused with “Trip Initiate.” PSDI is defined in
OSHA CFR1910.217. Banner safety light screen systems may not
be used as PSDI devices on mechanical power presses, per OSHA
regulation 29 CFR 1910.217.
Qualified Person: An individual who, by possession of a
recognized degree or certificate of professional training, or by
extensive knowledge, training, and experience, has successfully
demonstrated the ability to solve problems relating to the subject
matter and work. (See Designated Person.)
Receiver: The light-receiving component of a safety light screen
system, consisting of a row of synchronized phototransistors. The
receiver, together with the emitter (placed opposite), creates a
“screen of light” called the defined area.

Reduced Resolution: A feature that allows a safety light screen
system to be configured to produce an intentionally disabled light
beam(s) within the light screen, which increases the minimum
object sensitivity. The disabled beam(s) appears to move up and
down (“float”) in order to allow the feeding of an object through
the defined area at any point without tripping the safety outputs
(e.g., OSSDs) and causing a Trip or Latch condition. Sometimes
called “Floating Blanking.”
Reset: The use of a manually operated switch to restore the safety
outputs to the ON state from a lockout or a Latch condition.
Resolution: See Minimum Object Sensitivity.
Self-Checking (Circuitry): A circuit with the capability to
electronically verify that all of its own critical circuit components,
along with their redundant backups, are operating properly.
Banner safety light screen systems and safety modules are selfchecking.
Separation Distance (Safety Light Screen): The minimum
distance required to allow the machine’s hazardous motion to
stop completely, before a hand (or other object) can reach the
nearest hazard point. Measured from the midpoint of the defined
area to the nearest hazard point. Factors that influence minimum
separation distance include the machine stop time, the light
screen system response time, and the light screen minimum
object detection size.
