Safety Light Curtains with Bluetooth Interface - Delivered Fast from Schmersal!

The Bluetooth interface on the Schmersal SLC440/COM Safety Light Curtain provides all the status and diagnostic data on the operating status of the unit, in real-time on your smartphone or tablet. Best of all, Schmersal are quoting a 10 Day Lead Time on ALL their Safety Light Curtains (at the time of writing).

Safety Light Curtains with Bluetooth Interface

In combination with the Schmersal App "SLC Assist" the operator uses this diagnosis tool for a safe operation, setup and documentation of a Schmersal AOPD. The Bluetooth interface also supports easy start-up using a smartphone or tablet with the integrated setup aid. There is also the excellent option of saving the data, which can then be used, for example, to document a repeat test or for predictive maintenance purposes.

Uniquely Wide Range

This innovative technology for optoelectronic safety systems is unique with respect to the range over which the data can be communicated. Until now only diagnostic tools based on NFC technology have been available on the market. While NFC tools only offer a range of a few centimetres, the Bluetooth BLE interface can achieve a range of 100 times more at up to 5 metres. This means the BLE interface is perfect when the opto-electronic safety system is in a relatively inaccessible position. Bluetooth BLE also offers a greater range of applications because not all smartphones or tablets are equipped with NFC, but most have Bluetooth. As Bluetooth is an international industrial standard, the 440/COM range of light grids with Bluetooth BLE interface can be used all over the world.

Increased Efficiency: Status Data Can be Accessed in Real-Time

The SLC440/COM with Bluetooth BLE enable significantly improved efficiency in production processes. As the status data of the light grids can be accessed easily and in real-time, errors can be resolved more quickly to achieve increased machine availability. This status information and diagnostic data enables processes to be reactivated more quickly, particularly in the event of a system shutdown if a hazard is detected.

It also represents an economical innovation as, compared to classic Bluetooth, BLE is characterised by considerably lower energy consumption and reduced costs at a similarly high communication range.
