Presence Sensing Safety Devices
Selection Tips
Is the hazardous area stationary or mobile?
A stationary hazard refers to a fixed machine or work cell where one or more mechanical hazards exist. A mobile hazard is generally a fixedrail linear transfer mechanism (e.g., a transfer cart or conveyor) or an Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV). Use of a safety device on a mobile
hazard generally relates to collision avoidance with personnel or surrounding machinery.
General
Selection Tips
Partial-body access, on the other hand, is required for applications where an operator must regularly reach into a machine hazard as part of
the process at the point of operation (known as POC or Point of Operation Control). In the case of opto-electronic safety devices such as
light curtains and area scanners, full- or partial-body detection is directly related to the resolution of the safety device. Below is the
relationship of sensing field resolution to the type of detection:
Object to be Detected/Protected
Resolution
Finger (vertical field)
14 mm
Hand (vertical field)
30 mm
Limb (horizontal field for leg detection)
50 mm, 70 mm
Full Body (horizontal fields)
150 mm
Blind Spots
In some cases it may be possible for a person to enter the guarded area and be lost from view, potentially allowing the guard door to be shut
and the machine started by another person. Often used in conjunction with hard guarding and a gate outfitted with an interlock switch,
presence sensing safety devices such as pressure-sensitive safety mats, and laser scanners can be used to check for the presence of a
person anywhere within the enclosed safety area.
2-Selection
Criteria
Full-body access generally refers to the requirement for a person to be standing or walking in (or have access to) the hazardous area around
a machine that does not require frequent interaction between personnel and the hazard during regular operation; generally this is for
maintenance and troubleshooting. Full-body perimeter or area access control (PAC or AAC, respectively) is achieved through the use of a
vertical or horizontal safety field, either opto-electronic (i.e., a light curtain or scanner) or by contact (safety edges and mats).
Safety Switches
What do we mean by full- versus partial-body access?
Principles
In the instance that the hazard moves toward the operator (such as with powered doors) as opposed to the operator moving toward the
hazard, a pressure-sensitive safety edge can be mounted to the leading edge of the door. Any contact between the door and personnel will
stop the machine before injury can occur.
When the hazardous area to be monitored is a rectangle (or a shape consisting of contiguous rectangles), access to the area can be easily—
and cost-effectively—controlled with a standard safety mat. When the hazardous area is irregularly shaped, a custom mat is a viable option,
but not necessarily the most cost-effective or readily available. In such a case, a safety scanner is the best option because its scanning field
can be easily programmed to scan irregular areas and ignore obstacles (walls, columns) while detecting moving objects (people, AGVs, etc.)
as required.

Technology Overview
Safedge™ Pressure-Sensitive Safety Edges
Features/Benefits
General
Principles
Pressure-sensitive safety edges are flexible strips that can be mounted to the edge of a
moving part—such as a machine table or powered door—that poses a crushing or
shearing risk. Contact of the edge with an object or personnel switches off the machine
hazard. Safety edges are a cost-effective solution for constant safety monitoring in smaller
areas, especially those applications requiring physical flexibility and a tight turn radius.
Rated to Category 3, safety edges do not develop ‘dead spots’ like some other pressuresensitive safety offerings. They are also easy to install and maintain, and can withstand
high-pressure washdowns, making them suitable for a wide range of applications and
environments. Multiple profile sizes and the availability of custom edge systems also lend
to a high degree of application flexibility. It is important to note that Safedge requires a
dedicated safety relay for monitoring and control, which can be connected to other safety
systems.

Criteria
MatGuard™ Pressure-Sensitive Safety Mats
Features/Benefits
Safety Switches
Pressure-sensitive safety mats provide constant guarding and monitoring of a floor area
around a machine; 66 lbs. or more of pressure on the mat (e.g., an operator’s footstep)
causes the mat controller unit to switch off power to the hazard. Like safety edges,
MatGuard safety mats are easy to apply and maintain, can withstand high pressure
washdowns and are not susceptible to dead spots. An ideal solution for relatively small
areas, MatGuard products also offer a high degree of application flexibility, offering
reversible mats, direct micro quick connectivity to controllers, simple connection to
standard and DeviceNet Safety I/O blocks, custom system configurations, and quickdelivery standard sizes. However, mats can be damaged by dropped objects, such as tool
dies, and pose a potential trip hazard if trim is not used.

SafeZone™ Safety Laser Scanners
Features/Benefits
Logic
The SafeZone safety laser scanners are opto-electronic devices that create a userconfigurable scanning field with one or more safety zones. If a person or object enters the
warning field, the SafeZone scanner switches a single output that can be used to initiate a
warning signal, such as an optical or acoustic alarm. If the inner safety field is breached,
the scanner switches two independent safety outputs initiating a machine stop signal to
halt dangerous machine motion. Offering warning fields up to 49 meters, the SafeZone is
easy to install—either horizontally or vertically—and requires no dedicated controller for
operation. Suited for Category 3, SIL2 PLd applications, the scanner is easily interfaced
with other safety systems and the easy-to-use configuration software allows
customization of the field shape.

Features/Benefits
PAC light curtains are an easy-to-install, Category 4 solution for full-body access
detection. Designed to create a safety perimeter around a machine that does not require
frequent interaction between personnel and the hazard during regular operation, PAC light
curtains provide large object pass-through sensing with detection ranges up to 30 meters.
PAC light curtains can be easily interfaced with other safety systems or used as
standalone units without a dedicated control unit/safety relay. However, it is important to
note that these light curtains do not detect people or objects once they have passed
through the light curtain.

General
Features/Benefits
POC light curtains are placed close to the hazard, at the point of operation where
personnel may frequently interact with the machine as part of a process. POC light
curtains are designed for partial-body detection—finger, hand, and arm detection—and
are offered in multiple resolutions and protective heights. An easy-to-install Category 4 SIL
3, PLe solution, these light curtains are easily connected to other safety systems, but
usually do not require a separate controller and can therefore be operated as standalone
units (i.e., without a safety relay). Since they are located at the machine’s point of
operation, POC light curtains eliminate the need for gates, allowing frequent and easy
access to the hazardous area, and can be used as an ergonomic workstation control that
increases safety while enhancing productivity. These light curtains can be mounted
vertically or horizontally. However, it is important to note that these light curtains do not
detect people or objects once they have passed through the light curtain.

Introduction
General
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield is offered as a Type 2
and a Type 4 POC safety light curtain as well as a Type 4 PAC
safety light curtain. The Type 4 POC GuardShield is offered in both
14 mm and 30 mm resolutions while the Type 2 is offered in 30 mm
resolution only. The GuardShield PAC is offered with multiple beam
configurations with varying beam spacings. All GuardShield family
safety light curtains meet the requirements of IEC/EN 61496.
1
Principles
POC safety light curtains are designed to detect the presence of an
opaque object of a minimum resolution. These devices are usually
positioned in front of the point of operation hazard, however, they
may also be used for perimeter guarding applications.
Receiver
PAC safety light curtains are typically used as opto-electronic
fences or as whole body detection devices to detect personnel or
large objects when they pass through the sensing field. These PAC
safety light curtains are typically positioned around an area or in
front of a process entry or exit area.
2-Opto-electronics
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield is a two-box safety
light curtain, consisting of a nonmatched transmitter and receiver
pair. Any GuardShield transmitter of the same family (POC, PAC)
and same resolution will work with any receiver of the same family
and resolution. The synchronization between transmitter and
receiver is achieved optically. The first beam adjacent to the receiver
LEDs is the synchronization channel. This synchronization beam
cannot be blocked in a fixed or floating blanking application.
2
4
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield Type 4 is a two-box
light curtain with DIP switch selectable operating modes.
Safety Switches
The GuardShield safety light curtain has two transistor type PNP
safety outputs, referred to as OSSDs (Output signal switching
devices). These outputs may be connected to a safety relay module
or directly to the primary control element of a machine if the EDM
connection within the GuardShield receiver is also connected and
configured.
The standard GuardShield receiver also has an auxiliary nonsafety
output which can be connected to a PLC for status of the OSSDs,
to a stack light for signaling or to control an in-feed motor, etc.
The standard GuardShield requires separate transmitter and receiver
cables. The transmitter cable utilizes a 4-pin micro quick-disconnect
(M12) connector and is offered in lengths from 2 meters to 30
meters. The receiver cable has an 8-pin micro quick-disconnect
(M12) connector and is also offered in lengths from 2 meters to 30
meters.

Overview
GuardShield Safe 4
The GuardShield Safe 4 is a Type 4 safety light curtain offered in
POC and PAC versions with basic ON/OFF functionality. The Safe 4
POC is offered in both 14 mm and 30 mm resolutions in protective
heights ranging from 120 mm up to 1920 mm in increments of 120
mm.
The GuardShield Safe 4 PAC (Perimeter Access) is offered with two
120 mm modules providing 500 mm spacing and with three 120 mm
modules providing 400 mm spacing. Both the two- and three-beam
Safe 4 PAC versions have an operating range from 5 meters up to
30 meters.
The GuardShield Micro 400 requires a dedicated controller, either an
MSR42 or MSR41. The MSR41 is a basic controller for simple
ON/OFF functionality and the MSR42, in addition to providing
operating functionality for the Micro 400, can be used as a multifunction safety module. This multi-functional safety module allows
the connection of additional safety light curtains, safety laser
scanner or a safety device with PNP type outputs as well as E-stops
or override switches. The MSR42 can have limited functionality
activated by wiring but requires configuration software for any
advanced functionality.
The Micro 400 transmitter and receiver are offered with eight-pin
M12 connectors at the end of 500 mm (19.8 in.) integrated cables.
The patchcords to connect the transmitter and receiver to the
controller are the same cat. no. and are offered in various lengths.
These patchcords are configured on one end with M12 connectors
that mate to the integrated pigtail connectors and RJ45 connectors
on the opposite end, that plug into the MSR41 or MSR42 controller.
The Micro 400 is also offered in cascadable configurations.
GuardShield Cascadable Micro 400 safety light curtains allow the
interconnection of multiple segments of the Micro 400 safety light
curtain with a common pair of safety outputs. This cascadable
configurability of the GuardShield Micro 400 reduces overall system
wiring and allows the GuardShield Micro 400 to be fitted into a
variety of applications where the safety distances for mounting the
light curtain may allow personnel to stand between the light
curtain’s sensing field and the hazard or where multiple-sided
guarding is required and the use of corner mirrors is not possible.
General
Operator
Interface
The GuardShield Safe 4 POC and Safe 4 PAC are economical Type
4 safety light curtains with ON/OFF functionality and an integrated
laser alignment system. The integrated laser alignment system
consists of a constantly powered Class 2 visible laser located on the
top of the transmitter and on the bottom of the receiver. The
constantly powered integrated laser alignment systems allows a low
level of laser light to be emitted. Simply touching a finger to the
laser beneath the finger symbol reflects the low level of laser light
back to a photo sensor which causes the laser light intensity to
increase for five minutes or until a finger covers the laser reflecting
the laser back to the photo sensor which signals a reduction of the
intensity of the emitted laser light. This system assures that both the
top and bottom of the Safe 4 pair are quickly and easily aligned or
realigned if a light curtain or corner mirror is inadvertently moved
during operation.
The compact housing size allows the GuardShield Micro 400 to be
mounted in areas where standard safety light curtains may not be
able to be mounted due to space constraints.
Principles
The receiver DIP-switches provide for configuration of all of the
GuardShield safety light curtain's modes of operation.
2-Opto-electronics
The transmitter DIP-switches provide for the configuration and
activation of Beam Coding and Machine Test Signal.
GuardShield Micro 400
The GuardShield Micro 400 is an economical three-box (transmitter,
receiver and controller) Type 4 safety light curtain offered in a small
profile (15 mm X 20 mm) housing. Designed for use in benign
industrial environments (IP54), this medium/light duty safety light
curtain system is targeted to the semi-conductor, microelectronic
and small assembly machine markets.
Safety Switches
The standard GuardShield safety light curtain has DIP-switches
located in both the transmitter and receiver endcaps. The DIPswitches are accessible through a hinged door that is secured to the
endcap with a security screw.

120 to 1920 mm in 120 mm increments. The GuardShield Safe 2 is
an economical, two-box safety light curtain with ON/OFF
functionality and an integrated laser alignment system. The
integrated laser alignment system consists of a Class 2 visible laser
located at the top of the transmitter and the bottom of the receiver.
Each laser has a target located opposite the laser on the transmitter
and receiver. This integrated laser alignment system facilitates
alignment at installation and during the course of usage if the Safe 2
pair is knocked out of alignment.

Overview
General
Typical System Configurations
Perimeter Access Control (PAC)
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield and GuardShield Safe
4 safety light curtains are two-box designs. This means the safety
light curtain does not need a separate controller to operate.
Therefore, the safety outputs of the light curtain (OSSDs) can be
connected directly to any safety relay that will accept two PNP
inputs.
Allen-Bradley Guardmaster PAC safety light curtains consist of two
families, the GuardShield PAC family and the Safe 4 PAC family. The
GuardShield PAC family is offered with multiple beams with various
beam spacings for short range applications (16 meters or less). The
Safe 4 PAC family is offered with multiple beams (2 or 3) with
various beam spacings for long range (5…30 meters).
The following are some common configurations of light curtain
systems. The numbers on the drawing indicate the ordering steps to
follow to ensure that a complete system is specified.
PAC safety light curtains are opto-electronic through-beam devices
typically used to detect personnel around hazardous equipment or
machinery. PAC safety light curtains are usually used as an optoelectronic fence and when used with corner mirrors, can provide
two- or three-sided detection around the perimeter of hazardous
machinery.

90 mm and up. It is also common for PAC safety light curtains to be
offered with a limited number of infrared beams spaced at
consistent distances from one another, such as 3 beams with
400 mm spacing between beams, or 2 beams with 500 mm beam
spacing.

Muting
Logic
PAC safety light curtains are also used in conveyorized processes
and very often are used in conjunction with a muting module.
Muting is the temporary automatic suspension of the protective
function of the safety light curtain.
Muting modules can be integrated into the light curtain's receiver or
external to the light curtains. Rockwell currently offers external
muting modules.
Power
This muting function allows material to move through the safety light
curtain’s sensing field without stopping the machine, however, if a
person attempts to pass through the safety light curtain, they will be
detected and the machine will stop. The differentiation between
material and personnel is determined by the use of muting sensors.
These muting sensors create a particular switching sequence
together with the safety light curtain as the material passes through
the process.

MS2 MS1
Muted LC1
Machine
A requirement of muting in machine applications is for indication
that the muting function is activated. This is typically accomplished
by the use of a muting lamp. The various muting modules offered by
Rockwell Automation have an output for the connection of a muting
lamp.
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield PAC safety light curtain
system is a two-box design. This means the safety light curtain
does not need a separate controller to operate in a guard-only
mode with manual reset. Therefore, the safety outputs of the light
curtain (OSSDs) can be connected directly to any safety relay that
will accept PNP inputs.
Figure 1: Two-sensor bi-directional muting

The muting sensors must be spaced appropriately from the safety
light curtain and each other in order to ensure that the sensors
cannot be interrupted by personnel, causing the activation of the
muting function.

Principles
Conveyorized muting
Muting sensors are typically used in pairs and depending upon the
sensor configuration and muting module, allow either uni-directional
or bi-directional travel of material through the safety light curtain.
2-Opto-electronics
An interruption of the safety light curtain sensing field would cause
the machine or the hazardous motion to be turned off. The muting
cycle is completed when the material clears muting sensor 4.
Safety Switches
Four-sensor muting for this particular muting module in Figure 2
allows a single direction of travel. A particular sequence is also
required in this configuration; muting sensor 1 must be interrupted
first followed by muting sensor 2 and then the safety light curtain,
then muting sensor 3 and finally muting sensor 4. It is necessary
with this particular muting module to have the light curtain’s sensing
field interrupted within 3 seconds of muting sensor two being
interrupted. Also, the material must block muting sensor 3 and
muting sensor 4 before clearing muting sensors 1 and 2 or the
muting function is overridden and the safety light curtain would
become active causing a nuisance shutdown of the machine if the
material is within the light curtain sensing field.

Typical System Configurations
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster Safe 4 PAC safety light curtain
system is a two box design. This means the safety light curtain does
not need a separate controller to operate in a guard-only mode.
Therefore, the safety outputs of the light curtain (OSSDs) can be
connected directly to any safety relay that will accept PNP inputs.
The following are some common configurations of light curtain
systems. The numbers on the drawing indicate the ordering steps to
follow to ensure that a complete system is specified.

Presence Sensing Safety Devices
POC Type 4 Safety Light Curtains
The GuardShield’s torsionally rigid, extruded aluminium,
polyurethane powder-coated housing, combined with an
environmental rating of IP65, allows the GuardShield to be used in
guarding applications across a broad range of industries.
The cascading GuardShield safety light curtains are ordered as pairs
(transmitter and receiver) and are shipped under one cat. no. After
selecting the appropriate pair of cat. nos. for a cascading
GuardShield system, select the interconnecting transmitter and
receiver patchcord cat. nos. to connect the GuardShield pairs. The
transmitter patchcord is a 4-pin M12 patchcord offered in lengths of
1/3 meter, 1 meter and 2 meters. The receiver patchcord is an 8-pin
M12 patchcord offered in lengths of 1/3 meter, 1 meter, and 2
meters.
Remote Teach GuardShield
The GuardShield Remote Teach system provides a remote means of
changing a fixed blanking configuration within the GuardShield
safety light curtain. This keyswitch box eliminates the need to open
the GuardShield receiver door and perform the Teach function.
If the end pair of a cascading system is a cascading pair of
GuardShield light curtains, it is necessary to attach a termination
adaptor to the top M12 connector located on the receiver. Be sure
to order all other required interfaces and accessories.
2-Opto-electronics
The complete cascading GuardShield system has the full
functionality of a standard GuardShield (beam coding, EDM,
start/restart interlock, fixed and floating blanking). There are a
couple of operating modes which can not be configured in the
middle and end segments (EDM and Start/Restart Interlock) and
must only be configured in the host (first) pair. The system will still
have these operating modes active if configured in the host or first
GuardShield pair. This host or first pair is the pair of cascading
GuardShield light curtains, which have the output cordsets
connected and wired to the safety relay, safety PLC or FSDs.
Configuring of the EDM operating mode in the end and middle
segments will cause the system to go to a lock-out condition after
the first interruption of the sensing field. Configuration of the
start/restart interlock operating mode in the end and middle
segments will cause the system to stay in a red condition awaiting
reset after the interruption of the sensing field.
Safety Switches
Modes of operation such as fixed and floating blanking, beam
coding, start/restart interlock, external device monitoring (EDM), and
machine test signal, are selected by DIP-switch settings. These DIPswitches are located beneath a security door, which are
conveniently located on both the transmitter and receiver end caps.
Operator
Interface
Standard GuardShield
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield safety light curtain is
an economical, fully featured, Type 4 safety light curtain in a
uniquely styled housing. GuardShield safety light curtains are
general-purpose presence sensing devices designed for use on
hazardous machinery providing point of operation, as well as
perimeter and access guarding. This self-contained, two-box, safety
light curtain has DIP-switch selectable operating modes and is
available in both 14 mm and 30 mm resolutions.
A cascadable GuardShield safety light curtain is a standard
GuardShield safety light curtain in 14 and 30 mm resolutions with
additional M12 connectors located on top of each safety light
curtain. The connector on the top of the safety light curtains allow
the interconnection of up to a total of three pair of GuardShield
safety light curtains with a common pair of OSSDs. The ability to
interconnect GuardShield pairs reduces overall system wiring and
simplifies the safety circuit resulting in a lower overall cost of a
multiple safety light curtain system. This product configurability also
allows a GuardShield safety light curtain system to protect multiple
sides of a machine or simply adds flexibility when positioning
GuardShield in various applications.

Description
Principles
General
GuardShield
The three-position key switch simulates the opening of the
GuardShield receiver door, teaching the GuardShield light curtain
the new fixed blanking area, closing the door and returning to the
run mode of operation.
Power
The IP65 rated key switch box is provided with a steel mounting
back plate to facilitate mounting of the box in proximity to the
GuardShield receiver. It is necessary to see the receiver LEDs when
performing the teach function.

GuardShield with Integrated Laser Alignment System
Up to three GuardShield POC segments can be interconnected.
The upper and lower limit of the protective field is shown by
markings on the housings.
2-Opto-electronics
The width of the protective field is derived from the length of the
light path between transmitter and receiver and must not exceed the
maximum rated width of the protective field: 7 m for 14 mm (22.9 ft
for 0.55 in.), 18 m for 30 mm (59.0 ft for 1.18 in.).
Safety Switches
A maximum of three GuardShield light curtains can be
interconnected with a common pair of OSSDs. The maximum
number of beams allowed in a cascading system is 528 beams,
which equates to three 1760 mm cascading GuardShields in 14 mm
resolution. The individual segments can have mixed resolutions,
e.g., 14 mm and 30 mm as long as the pairs have the same
protective heights and resolutions.
Cascading segments are offered in protective heights from
320…1760 mm in both 14 mm and 30 mm resolutions. Cascading
segments of 160 mm are not offered, however; a 160 mm
GuardShield can be used as the last segment in a cascading
system.
The response time of a cascading GuardShield system is the
longest response time of any pair in the cascading system. For
example, if the response time of each pair in the cascading system
is 20 ms, then the cascading system's response time is 20 ms.
Operator
Interface
Cascading segments can be used as standalone light curtain pairs
or can have up to three segments interconnected. These cascading
segments all function as independent light curtains.
IMPORTANT
Logic
When cascading segments are used as
standalone pairs or as the last segment in a
cascading system, it is necessary to use a
termination plug on the top connector of
the GuardShield cascading receiver. It is
also possible to use a standard
GuardShield Type 4 POC pair as the last
segment in a cascading system.
The GuardShield POC and GuardShield POC cascadable light
curtains are offered with an integrated laser alignment system
consisting of a Class 1, eye safe, constantly powered laser located
in the top of the GuardShield transmitter and at the bottom of the
GuardShield receiver. There are targets located across from each
laser that help facilitate alignment of the light curtain when the laser
is emitting visible light.
Each laser emits a low level of visible light. Simply placing a finger
or opaque object in front of the laser reflects the laser light back to
a photo sensor. This photo sensor causes the laser to switch state
from a barely visible low level of emission to a higher level of
emission of visible light. Interrupting the visible light below the finger
symbol will cause the laser to change state back to a low level of
light emission. The visible light will also change to a low level after
five minutes.
The Integrated Laser Alignment system also quickly helps with the
re-alignment of pairs when units are knocked out of alignment
during the course of the work process or when corner mirrors are
used.
The GuardShield and Cascadable GuardShield are offered in 14 and
30 mm resolutions in protective heights from 320 to 1600 mm. The
160 and 1760 mm protective heights are not offered with the
integrated laser alignment systems.
ArmorBlock Guard I/O Connectivity
The GuardShield POC and GuardShield Cascadable light curtains
are also offered with the Class 1, eye safe, integrated laser
alignment system and connectivity to ArmorBlock Guard I/O. The
receiver of these light curtains has a five-pin M12 quick-disconnect
connector wired to connect to the 1732DS ArmorBlock I/O module,
allowing the GuardShield’s OSSDs to operate over a DeviceNet Safe
network.
This version of the GuardShield has limited configurability, i.e., only
beam coding, fixed and floating blanking can be configured by
setting the appropriate DIP switches and performing the teach
function. EDM, Start/Restart interlock, and the auxiliary output are
not available in these models.
You can use the ArmorBlock Guard I/O with any safety controller
that communicates on DeviceNet using CIP Safety for the control
and monitoring of safety circuits. ArmorBlock Guard I/O detects
circuit failures at each I/O point while providing detailed diagnostics
directly to the controller. With CIP Safety, you can easily integrate
safety and standard control systems by using safety and standard
messages on the same wire.
The 1732DS ArmorBlock Guard I/O family consists of 24V DC digital
I/O modules that communicate on DeviceNet networks.

Outputs
The Allen Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield Safe 4 is an
economical two box, Type 4 safety light curtain with ON/OFF
functionality. This basic, guard-only operating mode, safety light
curtain has an Integrated Laser Alignment system that simplifies the
alignment of each pair of light curtains. Visible laser beams are
activated by touching the laser at the finger symbol on front face of
the light curtains. Positioning of the transmitter and receiver laser
beams to their respective targets facilitates optimal alignment of
each Safe 4 pair. The Integrated Laser Alignment system also
quickly helps with the re-alignment of pairs when units are knocked
out of alignment during the course of the work process or when
corner mirrors are used.

The GuardShield Safe 4 is designed to be used in a variety of
applications across a broad range of industries in medium to heavy
industrial environments. Offered with shock isolator kits for shock
and vibration applications and protective heights from
120…1920 mm in 120 mm increments assures that the correct size
of safety light curtain is available to suit the application requirement.
The GuardShield Safe 4, with an environmental rating of IP65, meets
all applicable global standards and can be used on or around
industrial machinery and equipment anywhere in the world.

Presence Sensing Safety Devices
POC Type 4 Safety Light Curtains
A GuardShield Cascadable Micro 400 safety light curtain system is
comprised of one or two pair of Cascadable Micro 400 light curtains
as well as a standard Micro 400 pair as the last segment pair in the
cascaded system.
GuardShield Micro 400 cascaded pairs are offered in both 14 mm
and 30 mm resolutions in limited protected heights which are listed
in the table below. It is possible to mix 14 mm and 30 mm resolution
pairs in a cascaded Micro 400 system.
The Micro 400 requires a dedicated controller. The MSR41 controller
is used for on/off application and the MSR42 can also be used as a
multi-function safety module, allowing the connection of additional
safety light curtains, safety laser scanner, or any safety device with
two Output Signal Switch Devices (OSSD) outputs, or two contacts,
such as E-stops and enabling switches.
There are a number of operating modes that can be configured with
the MSR42 controller. EDM, START/Restart interlock, fixed and
floating blanking and muting are possible.
The Micro 400 transmitter and receiver are offered with 8-pin M12
connectors at the end of 500 mm (19.8 in.) integrated cables. The
patchcords to connect the transmitter and receiver to the controller
are the same and are offered in 3, 5, and 8 m (9.8, 16.4, and 26.2 ft)
lengths. These patchcords are configured on one end with M12
connectors (which mate to the integrated pigtail connectors) and
RJ45 connectors on the opposite end (which plug into the MSR42
controller).
Cascadable System
When connecting two cascadable segments together, the resultant
cable length between segments is 1000 mm (39.6 in.).
If an additional length between segment pairs is required, Rockwell
Automation offers an M12-to-M12 patchcord in 1 m (39.37 in.) and
3 m (118.1 in.) lengths (Cat. Nos. 445L-AC8PC1 or 445L-AC8PC3).
IMPORTANT
The maximum cascaded Micro 400
system length can not exceed 10 m as
measured between the RJ45 connection
at the MSR42 controller to the last beam
in the standard Micro 400, including all
cable lengths. The maximum number of
beams in a cascaded Micro 400 system
can not exceed 255 beams.
Features
Very small profile 15 x 20 mm (0.59 x 0.79 in.)
M12 connector on 20 inch pigtails
Minimal dead space of optic heads
Applications
Light assembly machines/equipment
Semi-conductor
Micro-electronics
Pharmaceutical
Power
The GuardShield Micro 400 is also offered in a cascadable
configuration. GuardShield Cascadable Micro 400 safety light
curtains allow the interconnection of multiple segments of the Micro
400 safety light curtain with a common pair of safety outputs. This
cascadable configurability of the GuardShield Micro 400 reduces
overall system wiring and allows the GuardShield Micro 400 to be
fitted into a variety of applications where the safety distances for
mounting the light curtain may allow personnel to stand between
the sensing field of the light curtain and the hazard or where
multiple sided guarding is required and the use of corner mirrors is
not possible.
The GuardShield Cascadable Micro 400 system operates as a single
light curtain pair with a common set of OSSDs. Each segment pair
is connected in series making the response time of the complete
system the sum of each segment pair, plus the response time of the
MSR41 or MSR42 and other safety devices in the stop circuit.
Operator
Interface
Protective heights are offered from 150…1200 mm (5.91…47.2 in.)
in 150 mm (5.91 in.) increments. The compact housing size allows
the GuardShield Micro 400 to be mounted in areas where standard
safety light curtains may not be able to be mounted due to space
constraints. It is also possible to recess the GuardShield Micro 400
transmitter and receiver into machine frames.
A cascadable pair of GuardShield Micro 400 light curtains has a
500 mm (19.8 in.) pigtail with a female M12 QD on the bottom of the
Micro 400 light curtain and a 500 mm (19.8 in.) pigtail with a male
M12 QD attached to the top of the Micro 400 transmitter and
receiver.
Logic
Description
The GuardShield Micro 400 is an economical three-box (transmitter,
receiver and controller) Type 4 safety light curtain offered in a small
profile (15 x 20 mm (0.59 x 0.79 in.)) housing. Designed for use in
benign industrial environments (IP54), this light-duty safety light
curtain system is targeted to the semi-conductor, micro electronic
and small assembly machine markets.
2-Opto-electronics
The cascadable Micro 400 safety light curtains are ordered as pairs
(transmitter and receiver) and are shipped under one cat. no. After
selecting the appropriate light curtain cat. nos. for a cascaded Micro
400 system, select the standard Micro 400 pair as the last segment
in the cascaded system and also select interconnecting patchcords.
Principles
The standard GuardShield Micro 400
must always be the last segment in a
cascaded Micro 400 system.

POC Type 2 Safety Light Curtains
GuardShield Type 2
Overview
General
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield Type 2 safety light
curtain is a new addition to the ABGM portfolio of Opto-Electronic
safety devices. The “Type 2” designation means that this particular
safety light curtain meets a lesser requirement for performance
under fault conditions than the GuardShield Type 4. As a result, the
GuardShield Type 2 safety light curtain can only be applied in
applications where a formal risk assessment has determined that a
Type 2 device is sufficient to meet the level of risk posed by the
hazard.
Principles
There are a number of regulations that discuss risk assessment. The
US based methods of conducting risk assessments which provide
guidance for the determination of the level of risk to personnel can
be found as follows:
ANSI TR3—for machinery
ANSI/RIA 15.05—for the Robotics industry
ANSI/ISO 12100-1 Safety of Machinery
2-Opto-electronics
Typically in North America the use of Type 2 light curtains is not
allowed for machinery or equipment covered by ANSI/OSHA
regulations and standards whose requirement for performance
under fault conditions is "control reliability." Type 2 light curtains do
not meet the requirements of "control reliability."
A Type 2 device requires the need for a periodic test of the system
prior to a demand on the system, i.e., interruption of the light
curtain's sensing field. This periodic test may be initiated by a
simple manually operated switch (e.g., pushbutton) or by a more
complex automatically controlled PLC.
Ideally the periodic test will be twice the operator interface
frequency of exposure to the hazard.
The Type 4 device is required to detect a fault in its safety circuitry
and immediately switch to a lock-out condition when the fault
occurs. The fault detection is assured through diverse redundancy
and cross monitoring of the internal circuit. A Type 4 device will fail
to a safe state in the presence of an accumulation of undetected
faults.
IMPORTANT
Type 2 safety light curtains do not meet
OSHA regulations nor ANSI published
standards, which define the requirements
of “Control Reliability,” therefore it is not
allowable to use a Type 2 safety light
curtain device on equipment or machinery
that requires “Control Reliability.”
The European Union requires the Risk Assessment be performed
per EN ISO 14121 "Principles for Risk Assessment."
Safeguarding of the machine must be appropriate to the foreseeable
risks and identified hazards. The level(s) of risk determined from the
completion of a formal risk assessment indicate the level of the
safety device required. In many instances it is necessary to use a
combination of safety devices for adequate protection of personnel
from hazards based on the risk assessment.
Safety Switches
What Is "Type 2" and "Type 4"
Three types of safety ESPEs (Electro-Sensitive Protective
Equipment) are defined within International and European standard
IEC/EN 61496 Parts 1 and 2. This standard specifies the
requirements for the design, construction, testing and performance
of ESPEs—designed specifically to detect persons as part of a
safety related system. The three types differ in their performance in
the presence of faults and under influences from environmental
conditions.
A Type 2 safety light curtain requires:
Operator
Interface
A single fault resulting in the loss of detection capability,
Failure of the OSSDs to go to the OFF state,
Shall cause the light curtain to lock out as a result of the cycling of
power, the next periodic test, or the interruption of the sensing
function.

The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield Type 2 safety light
curtain is a self contained “two box,” Type 2 safety light curtain.
Designed for use on or around machinery in which a formal risk
assessment has determined that a Type 2 safety device is of a
sufficient level of safety to meet the guarding application, the
GuardShield Type 2 is the ideal solution. GuardShield Type 2 is
offered in either a “Guard Only” operating mode or in a factory
configured operating mode of restart interlock with external device
monitoring. In either operating mode, the GuardShield Type 2 safety
light curtain will provide the appropriate level of protection to
personnel.

ATTENTION
Safety light curtains of a Type 2 level of
safety typically do not meet OSHA or ANSI
requirements of “Control Reliability,”
therefore it is not allowable to use a safety
device of a Type 2 level on or around
equipment or machinery that requires
“Control Reliability.”

Description
2-Opto-electronics
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield Safe 2 safety light
curtain is a new addition to the Allen-Bradley Guardmaster portfolio
of opto-electronic safety devices. The “Type 2” designation means
that this particular safety light curtain meets a lesser requirement for
performance under fault conditions than the GuardShield Type 4
safety light curtains. As a result, the GuardShield Type 2 safety light
curtain can only be applied in applications where a formal risk
assessment has determined that a Type 2 device is sufficient to
meet the level of risk posed by the hazard.
The GuardShield Safe 2 safety light curtain is a self-contained twobox, safety light curtain in a robust housing with an integrated laser
alignment system. The integrated laser alignment system generates
two visible beams of light which simplifies alignment of the light
curtain pair.
Safety Switches
This economical opto-electronic Type 2 safety light curtain is offered
in a guard-only mode of operation and is designed for use on or
around machinery or equipment where a formal risk assessment has
determined that a Type 2 safety device is of a sufficient level of
safety to meet the guarding application.
ATTENTION
24V DC ± 20% (Usp)
Safety light curtains of a Type 2 level of
safety typically do not meet OSHA or ANSI
requirements of “Control Reliability,”
therefore it is not allowable to use a safety
device of a Type 2 level on or around
equipment or machinery that requires
“Control Reliability.”

Presence Sensing Safety Devices
PAC Type 4 Safety Light Curtains
GuardShield PAC
General
Each laser emits a low level of visible light. Simply placing a finger
or opaque object in front of the laser reflects the laser light back to
a photo sensor. This photo sensor causes the laser to switch state
from a barely visible low level of emission to a higher level of
emission of visible light. Interrupting the visible light below the finger
symbol will cause the laser to change state back to a low level of
light emission. The visible light will also change to a low level after
five minutes.
The Integrated Laser Alignment system also quickly helps with the
re-alignment of pairs when units are knocked out of alignment
during the course of the work process or when corner mirrors are
used.
Principles
ArmorBlock Guard I/O Connectivity
Description
Standard GuardShield PAC
2-Opto-electronics
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield Perimeter Access
Control (PAC) safety light curtain is a multiple beam, short range
(0.3…16 m), Type 4 safety light curtain typically used to provide
access detection at machine entry points. It is also possible to use
the GuardShield PAC in perimeter guarding applications as an
optoelectronic fence as long as the perimeter distance does not
exceed the maximum range of 16 meters. Note that when using the
GuardShield PAC with corner mirrors for multiple sided guarding,
each mirror reduces the maximum scan range of 16 meters by
approximately 15%.
The GuardShield PAC light curtains are also offered with the
integrated laser alignment system and connectivity to ArmorBlock
Guard I/O. The receiver of these light curtains has a five-pin M12
quick disconnect connector wired to allow connection to the
1732DS ArmorBlock I/O module. This connectivity of the
GuardShield PAC receiver allows the GuardShield’s OSSDs to
operate over a DeviceNet Safe network.
This version of the GuardShield has limited configurability, i.e., only
beam coding can be configured by setting the appropriate DIP
switches and performing the teach function. EDM, Start/Restart
interlock as well as the auxiliary output are not available in these
GuardShield PAC models.
Safety Switches
The ArmorBlock Guard I/O can be used with any safety controller
that communicates on DeviceNet using CIP Safety for the control
and monitoring of safety circuits. ArmorBlock Guard I/O detects
circuit failures at each I/O point while providing detailed diagnostics
directly to the controller. With CIP Safety, you can easily integrate
safety and standard control systems by using safety and standard
messages on the same wire.
The 1732DS ArmorBlock Guard I/O family consists of 24V DC digital
I/O modules that communicate on DeviceNet networks.

Interface
The GuardShield PAC safety light curtain is designed for whole body
detection and is currently offered in two configurations: two beams
at 500 mm spacing and three beams at 400 mm spacing.
GuardShield PAC with Integrated Laser Alignment System
The GuardShield PAC light curtains are offered with an integrated
laser alignment system consisting of a Class 1, eye safe, constantly
powered laser located in the top of the GuardShield PAC transmitter
and at the bottom of the GuardShield PAC receiver. There are
targets located across from each laser which help facilitate
alignment of the light curtain when the laser is emitting visible light.

The Allen Bradley Guardmaster GuardShield Safe 4 PAC is an
economical two box, Type 4 safety light curtain with ON/OFF
functionality. This basic, guard-only operating mode, perimeter
access safety light curtain has an integrated laser alignment system
that simplifies the alignment of each pair of light curtains. Visible
laser beams are activated by touching the finger symbol on front
face of the light curtains. Positioning of the transmitter and receiver
laser beams to their respective targets facilitates optimal alignment
of each Safe 4 PAC pair. The integrated laser alignment system also
helps with the re-alignment of pairs if units are knocked out of
alignment during the course of the work process or when corner
mirrors are used.

300 mA @ 24V DC
Safety Switches
The GuardShield Safe 4 PAC is offered with two 120 mm long,
30 mm resolution optic modules spaced at 500 mm and three
120 mm long, 30 mm resolution optic modules spaced at 400 mm
providing whole body detection. Designed for perimeter guarding
applications, both configurations of the Safe 4 PAC have operating
ranges from 5 to 30 meters which allows them to be used as optoelectronic fences. The use of corner mirrors with the Safe 4 PAC
allows multiple-sided guarding in large perimeter applications. The
GuardShield Safe 4 PAC is also a low cost solution for entry or exit
guarding of a machine process when paired with the MSR42 muting
module. The MSR42 can be configured for two-sensor muting with
the Safe 4 PAC. The muting function allows material to pass through
the sensing field of the Safe 4 PAC when the muting sensors are
properly activated by the flow of material.

Description
Outputs
The Area Access Control (AAC) safety single-beam is a 24V DC
through-beam opto-electronic safety switch offered with two
operating ranges (a short range (0.5…20 m (1.64…65.5 ft) or a long
range (15…70 m (49.2…300 ft)) system. The AAC system uses the
same transmitter for both ranges and one of two receivers for a
short-range or long-range system. This unique system configuration
minimizes the number of cat. nos. necessary for specifying the AAC
single-beam system.

Presence Sensing Safety Devices
Safety Laser Scanner
Overview
General
Principles of Operation
Stationary Horizontal Guarding—Single Field Set
The SafeZone™ safety laser scanner operates on the principle of
diffuse reflection and the time flight of light. Pulses of Infrared light
are reflected off of a rotating mirror and are emitted over a 190° arc.
The diffuse reflection of light is received from an intrusion in the
preconfigured sensing field and processed to determine the location
and distance of the object from the SafeZone scanner.
It is possible to configure a warning field and a safety field in front of
machinery or equipment to protect personnel from accessing the
area where hazardous motion takes place. The SafeZone safety
laser scanner is required to be mounted at a particular height from
the floor. Irregular shapes are easily configured using the Windowsbased SCD software.
Receiver

Principles
Exit
2-Opto-electronics
Sender Path
Receiver Path
At the time of the emission of Infrared light, an electronic stop watch
begins. The reflected light is then seen by the SafeZone scanner
and processed to determine the distance of the object from the
scanner.

Stationary Vertical Guarding
It is possible to mount the SafeZone safety laser scanner to create a
vertical safety field that provides access detection to a hazardous
area. It is necessary to configure “contour as a reference,” which
monitors specific areas at the perimeter of the safety field. Contour
as a reference must be configured for vertical applications as this
configured feature prevents the manipulation of the scanner.

Interface
Configuration of the SafeZone’s warning and safety fields are
accomplished using the Safety Configuration and Diagnostic (SCD)
software supplied with each scanner. This Windows®-based
software allows easy configuration of irregularly shaped fields by
simply clicking and dragging points along the perimeter of the
particular zone to shape the contour of the perimeter of the warning
or safety field.

Note: Both the SafeZone singlezone and multizone can be used in
stationary horizontal or vertical guarding applications. The SafeZone
multizone has a safety field range of 5 m (16.4 ft) and up to four
configurable and switchable field sets. The SafeZone singlezone has
a safety field range of 4 m (13 ft) and a single configurable field set.
Power
The SafeZone safety laser scanner is well suited to industrial
applications and can be used in either vertical or horizontal
applications to detect the intrusion of personnel or objects into the
configured sensing field(s). This detection can result in an audible
alarm or warning light being activated to warn of the intrusion or if
the intrusion is in the safety field, the hazardous motion of
machinery can be stopped.

Safety Laser Scanner
The SafeZone safety laser scanner is designed to detect fixed
objects (walls, columns), as well as moving objects (people, AGVs ).
The SafeZone safety laser scanner is typically mounted on the front
of a mobile vehicle or for AGVs capable of bi-directional travel, in
each direction of travel. Any object in the path of the moving
vehicle, of sufficient resolution, is detected. When an object or
person is detected in the configured warning field, a signal can be
used to decrease the speed of the AGV. Intrusion into the safety
field will send a signal to the AGV to stop. It is also possible to
configure a predetermined time delay where the SafeZone safety
laser scanner will monitor the safety field. If the safety field becomes
clear, the SafeZone’s Output Signal Switching Device (OSSD) will
change to a green state and allow the AGV to continue traveling.
Principles
Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs)
Stationary Vertical Guarding—Two or More Safety Zones
The SafeZone multizone safety laser scanner can be mounted to
create up to four vertical detection areas in the same plane. Contour
as a reference should be configured to prevent manipulation of the
scanner. A static control input switches between the configured
fields.

Note: Both the SafeZone singlezone and multizone can be used in
mobile applications, depending upon safety field range requirements
and the required number of switchable pre-configured field sets.

Stationary Horizontal Guarding—Up to Four Safety Zones
The SafeZone multizone safety laser scanner can be configured with
up to four field sets; each set may consist of a warning zone and a
safety zone. If the application warrants, it may only be necessary to
configure the safety zone(s).

Description
Outputs
The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster SafeZone safety laser scanners are
Type 3 opto-electronic devices, which use the diffuse reflection of
emitted infrared laser light to determine the intrusion of a person or
object within a defined area. A rotating deflection mirror periodically
emits Class 1 (eye safe) infrared laser pulses over a 190° angular
area to create a two dimensional detection field.
Safety Outputs
The reflected light is processed by the SafeZone, which sends a
stop signal by switching the state of its OSSD, if it is determined
that an object is within the preconfigured sensing field(s).

MatGuard consists of a number of interconnecting pressuresensitive safety mats and a monitoring control unit that provide a
system for area detection. The mat has been designed from the
“ground up” to meet the arduous conditions found on the factory
floor, and uses well-tried components and techniques to be
consistent with Category B and Category 1 requirements.

The mats are available in a wide range of standard sizes to meet
most requirements. Special sizes and shapes are available. Each
mat has two conductive plates that are held apart by nonconductive compressible separators. Each four-wire mat, operating
on only 24V DC, is pre-wired and connected in series with other
mats, forming a complete floor-level guarding system for hazardous
areas. The circuit through the mat must be monitored by a safetyrated control unit, which may be a Minotaur™ Safety Relay,
MatGuard control unit, or MatGuard Mat Manager. When the mat is
clear, the control unit provides a signal to the machine control
circuit.
In general, the covering has excellent resistance to acids, alkalis and
salts. Hot acids and alkalis, as well as concentrated and organic
acids, have a deleterious effect on prolonged exposure. The
covering has fair resistance to aliphatic solvents, fair to poor
resistance to aromatic and chlorinated solvents, and poor resistance
to ketones and most esters.
Note: Combinations of chemicals can have unpredictable effects.
Testing is recommended in such cases. Small pieces of the vinyl
material are available if testing is required.
3-Safety Switches
When a mat is stepped on, the conductive plates touch and the
resistance in the circuit falls to zero. This is monitored by the control
unit, which sends a stop command to the machine control system.
The unique molding process allows for the long life and reliability of
the mat. Being completely sealed (IP67), water, liquids and coolants
present no problem. In addition the tough vinyl will resist bleaches,
acids, salts, and all but the most aggressive of industrial chemicals.
A range of control units is available including the Mat Manager,
which monitors the status of each mat or area of mats individually.
This enables quick fault detection/repair and identification of
actuated area.

Standards
The MatGuard mat system has been designed to conform with the
latest European Standard EN 1760-1 “Safety of machinery—
Pressure sensitive devices; mats and floors.”
This standard contains requirements for all aspects of design. Some
of the most important points are as follows: (From 4.2.2) Where an
effective sensing area is built up from more than one sensor (mat) it
shall have no dead zone.
The standard gives details of the size, force and positioning of test
pieces for testing the mat sensitivity.
(From 4.5.1) A single sensor (mat) shall still perform its function
after one million actuations by a mass of 75 kg.
(From 4.7) When the actuating force is applied the output signal
switching device(s) shall change from an ON state to an OFF state.
It shall remain in the OFF state for at least as long as the actuating
force is applied.
(From 4.7.1) Device with reset – b) After the actuating force has
been removed, the output signal switching device(s) shall only
change to the ON state after the application of a reset signal.
(From 4.7.2) Device without reset—For a pressure sensitive mat
without reset the output signal switching device(s) shall change to
an ON state at power ON and after the actuating force has been
removed.
(From 4.15) The pressure sensitive mats shall meet the
requirements of the category for which they are specified...
Note: The MatGuard mat system features an “active” mat and a
dual channel monitoring control unit. This means that a single
electrical fault in the mat, wiring or control unit will be detected and
the control unit will go to a safe (OFF) condition.
(From informative annex B.1.1) The top (mat) surface should be of
a material which will withstand the operating duty.....The top surface
should not present a risk through becoming slippery due to wear or
the effects of liquids....
(From informative annex B.1.7) In some situations, heavy loads
(such as fork lift trucks) can be applied to the sensor (mat)..... If this
is required the user should identify the need to the mat
manufacturer.

MatGuard™ Mats
Overview
General
Note: The standard MatGuard mat can be successfully used with
fork lift trucks. The MatGuard Mat System should be installed in
accordance with the requirements of EN 999, “The positioning of
protective equipment in respect of approach speeds of parts of the
human body.”
The MatGuard Safety Mat system is also designed to meet the
U.S. standards ANSI/RIA R15.06-1999 Safety Requirements for
Industrial Robots and Robot Systems and ANSI B11.19
Performance Criteria for Safeguarding.
These two U.S. standards have many similar requirements and
provide performance criteria for design, installation and use.
Excerpts from these standards include:
From RIA R15.06
1-Principles
(From 11.7) Safety mat systems shall be designed, constructed,
and applied such that any single component failure shall not prevent
the stopping action of the robot.
(From 5.3.4) Safety mats shall have a minimum object sensitivity
which detects 30 kg (66 lb,) weight of an 80 mm (3.125 in.) diameter
circular disk anywhere on the mat sensing surface; provide a means
to retain minimum object sensitivity at the area where mats joined
together.
From ANSI B11.19
2-Safety Mats
(From 11.1.1.4) The safety mat device shall have a maximum
response time that is not affected by object sensitivity adjustments
or environmental changes.
(From 11.1.1.5) When a component, module, device or system
failure occurs, the safety related function shall prevent initiation of
the hazardous machine motion, initiate an immediate stop
command and prevent re-initiation of the hazardous machine
motion.
Ds is the minimum safety distance.
K is a minimum speed constant based on the movement of the
hand/arm only and the body being stationary.
K=1600 mm/s (63 in./s)
Ts is the worst stopping time of the machine/equipment.
Tc is the worst stopping time of the control system.
Tr is the response time of the safeguarding device.
Dpf is the depth penetration factor which is the maximum travel
towards the hazard within the safety mat area that may occur
before a stop is signalled.
Dpf=1200 mm (48 in.)
The response time of the machine and control system used in the
calculation must be the worst case. Some machines have
inconsistent response times that are dependent upon mode of
operation, nature of the work piece and point in the operating cycle
at which stopping is initiated. An allowance should be made for
wear in brakes, temperature, aging of components, etc., if this can
affect the response time. An allowance for further delays in the
machine control system may be required in some circumstances.
Calculation Example
In this example, the MatGuard system is being used with a machine
and control system with a worst-case response time measured at
0.485 seconds. The system is on a flat surface, it is not on a raised
platform. Using the formula above.

Sensor mats will be required from 2032 mm right up to the edge of
the machine base plate.
From AS 4024.5
The MatGuard Safety Mat system is designed to meet the Australian
Standard AS 4024.5, which has many similarities to the European
Standard EN1760-1. Excerpts from this standard include:
3-Safety Switches
(From 3.2.2) Where an effective sensing area is built up of more
than one sensor, it shall have no dead zone.
(From 3.7) When the actuating force is applied the output signal
switching device (s) shall change from an 'on' state to an 'off' state.
It shall remain in the 'off' state for at least as long as the actuating
force is applied.
(From 3.8) The sensor shall be provided with a means for fixed
permanent location.
(From 3.10) Provisions shall be made on the top surface of the
sensor to minimize slipping under the expected operating
conditions.

Application Details
Safety Distance Calculations ANSI/RIA R15.06
The minimum distance calculated is the minimum horizontal
distance from the outer edge of the MatGuard sensor mat detection
zone to the nearest part of the hazard. The formula for floor
mounted safety mats is:
Ds = [K x (Ts + Tc + Tr)] + Dpf
Safety Distance Calculations EN999
The minimum distance calculated is the minimum horizontal
distance from the outer edge of the MatGuard sensor mat detection
zone to the nearest part of the hazard. The formula for floor
mounted safety mats is:
S = [1600 x (t1 + t2)] + (1200 – 0,4H)
S is the minimum safety distance in mm in a horizontal plane from
the danger zone to the detecting edge of the device furthest from
the danger zone.
1600 is a minimum speed constant based on the movement of the
hand/arm only and the body being stationary.
1600 mm/s = 63 in./s
t1 is the maximum time between the actuation of the sensing
function and the output signal switching devices being in the off
state.
t2 is the maximum response time of the machine, i.e., the time
required to stop the machine or remove the risks after receiving
the output signal from the protective equipment.
1200 is the depth penetration factor which is the maximum travel
towards the hazard within the safety mat area that may occur
before a stop is signalled.
1200 mm = 48 in.
H is the distance above the reference plane, e.g., floor, in
millimeters.

Specifications
General
1-Principles
Description
The MatGuard safety mat is a pressure-sensitive safeguarding
product that is designed to detect the presence of people on its
sensing surface.
2-Safety Mats
The MatGuard safety mat has two conductive hardened steel plates
that are held apart by non-conductive compressible separators.
Each four-wire mat, operating on only 24V DC, is pre-wired and
connected in series with other mats to form a floor level guarding
system for hazardous areas. The circuit through the mat must be
monitored by a safety-rated control unit, which may be a Minotaur
Safety Relay, MatGuard control unit, or MatGuard Mat Manager.
When the mat is clear, the control unit provides a signal to the
machine control circuit.
When a mat is stepped on, the conductive plates touch and the
resistance in the circuit falls to zero. This is monitored by the control
unit, which sends a shutdown signal to the machine.

Safedge™ Profiles
Overview
General
System Components
Sensing Surface
The Safedge sensitive edge systems are used in a variety of
applications where the edge of an object must be detected by
contact. The Safedge system consists of three parts: 1) a C-rail,
which is used to mount the profile; 2) a profile, which contains the
sensing surface; and 3) a control unit, which checks the operation of
the profile and interfaces with the control system. A typical system
is shown below.
The profile is best actuated along its sensing surface. The sensing
surface of the Safedge system is active along almost the full length
of the edge. The 10 mm at the beginning and end are not active.

Operating Principle
3-Safety Switches
The profile works on the principle of a two-wire design with
conductive rubber. Two wires run the length of the profile. The wires
are terminated with a known resistor. When the profile is deformed,
the conductive rubber comes in contact with each other and causes
the overall resistance to drop.
Pressure required is
10 N (2.25 lb) when
applied in this direction

4-Operator
Interface
Non-conductive Rubber
The control unit provides a voltage source to the wires in the profile.
It continuously checks the continuity of the wires for shorts, opens
and changes in resistance. If the circuit opens, becomes shorted, or
the resistance changes, the output of the control unit turns off.
The control unit can also be used to monitor the performance of the
output switching devices.

Presence Sensing Safety Devices
Safedge™ Profiles
Force Travel Relationship
Risk Assessment
Since the Safedge system is a contact device, a force is required to
operate the device. This force is dependent on the shape of the
object applying the force, the speed of the object and deformation
distance on the profile. To help understand the force requirements,
the European standard EN1760-2 2001 provides three test objects
travelling at two speeds. Shown in the graph below is the force that
is applied over the deformation distance on the surface of the
profile. Note that the force required to operate the corners is greater
than the force required along the straight section of the profile. This
force must be used as a guideline, as the inanimate object can not
be harmed.
A risk assessment must be performed to determine the proper use
of the edge system. Additional protective measures must be used
when an individual can reach around or over the edge system and
gain access to a hazard. The edge system is designed to be a
contact type of system. Therefore “cushion factor” is an important
consideration.

Users might also consider a reversing option. When the profile is
depressed, the Safedge control unit sends a signal to a reversing
relay. Since the reversing relay is not a safety rated device, the user
must still confirm that injury does not occur if parts of the body get
jammed.
Typical Applications
Typical applications for sensitive edge systems are:
Sliding doors
Sliding gates
Automated guided vehicles
X-Y tables
Fence tops
Scissor jacks

The profile is mounted on the leading edge of the moving object. As
the profile comes in contact with an object, the sensing surface of
the profile deforms. The deformation causes the conductive rubber
parts to make contact and reduce the circuit resistance. The control
makes contact.

Typically, the edge of the object is leading edge and is moving, like
a sliding door or gate. Edge systems have also been used on the
leading edges of X-Y tables and automated guided vehicles.

In some applications, a drip edge or seal is needed to reduce wind
and rain leaking into a door. The Safedge system accommodates
both types of applications. Safedge has three profiles that include a
sealing lip.
1-Principles
Force (N)

2-Safety Edges
Automated doors will continue to close for some finite time after the
profile sends the initial stop signal. This is known as the system
response time. The system response time is the sum of the Safedge
control unit response time, the control system response time, and
the mechanical stopping time. Systems with longer response time
should utilize larger cushion factors. Users must validate that injury
does not occur if parts of the body get jammed, for example
between the sensing edge and the fixed part of a machine.
250
Force (N)
One of the important characteristics of edge systems is called
cushion factor. The cushion factor is the distance the profile can be
depressed after the signal is generated. This is important when the
profile is mounted on automated doors.

Overview
Safedge can also be ordered with a rubber cover as shown below.
This allows compression of the rubber boot without deforming the
profile.
Connection Methods
General
The profiles can be connected in one of two ways: series or parallel.
Either method provides the same performance. Selection of the
method is determined by ease of installation. The more popular
method is series.

Connection in series
If more than one profile is to
be used, they are normally

The profiles come in two different materials. Use the EPDM material
in the presence of conductive fluids. The NBR/CR material performs
better in the presence of oils. Review the chemical resistance chart
to help make the best choice of material. If in doubt, a small sample
of the profile should be tested for chemical resistance before a final

2-Safety Edges
The Safedge profiles come in three different cushions factors: 5 mm
(0.2 in.), 19 mm (0.75 in.), and 41 mm (1.6 in.). Cushion factor is the
distance the profile can be depressed after a signal has been
generated. The profiles are also offered with a sealing lip which is
designed to reduce drafts between the profile and opposing
surface.
Chemical Resistance of Safedge Profile
3-Safety Switches
The ability of the Safedge profile to out perform competition lies in
its innovative design. It uses a combination of non-conductive
rubber and flexible wire-cored conductive rubber bonded together
so it keeps bouncing back into shape even after repeated
compressions.

Cap
Example application of profile using coiled cable. The coiled cable
can not be directly connected to the profile due to the weight of the
cable. The proper use of the coiled cable is to connect the coiled
cable to the profile through the connection box. The coiled cable
should be secured to both the moving and stationary objects so as
to prevent straining of the terminal connections.
