IDEC’s ultra-compact SE2L safety laser scanner is the first of its kind to offer master/slave functionality and dual protection zones. Just one SE2L scanner can act as master and communicate with up to three other scanners, reducing the required number of input and communication channels on the controller. This can allow lower-cost controllers to be applied in applications requiring full 360-degree protection for an AGV, which requires four scanners. And the SE2L’s dual zone protection capability lets it scan two adjacent zones simultaneously and independently, performing the work of two scanners for the cost of one.
The SE2L scanner provides a standard 270-degree arc of protection at a distance up to five meters for the closest warning zone and 20 meters for each of two additional warning zones, easily configurable using our free programming software or the scanner’s teach mode. Each zone’s shape within the pattern can be configured in the software, and each zone activates a different signal output from the scanner.
Unique to the industry and providing improved connectivity, the SE2L scanner is certified for use in safety-critical applications such as AGVs, forklifts, robots and other moving equipment.
