Schmersal Safety Light Curtains Now Include a Bluetooth Interface as Standard

With the integrated Bluetooth interface, it has never been easier to get all the status and diagnostic data you need from a Schmersal Safety Light Curtain - on your Android and iOS smartphone or tablet.

Schmersal Safety Light Curtains are a great solution for machine guarding without physical barriers. They keep your employees safe, while helping to increase your productivity by allowing safe access without opening gates or guards.

Light Curtain Operation is Easier with Wireless Communication

The BlueTooth interface, along with the Schmersal SLC assist App is a huge bonus. Not only do you get all the information about the safety light curtain at your fingertips, the secure Bluetooth interface means you can do it all without cables (from up to 5m away).

Real-time Access to Your Information and Data

Unprecedented access to the operational data of the Safety Light Curtain has many advantages:

  • The app displays the signal strength of each beam making alignment easy.
  • It monitors the active operation mode, the status of the OSSD outputs and the status of the protective field - in real time, providing the information you need to quickly resolve faults.
  • Get documentation on the light curtain, either by email or saved to the smartphone or tablet.
  • You can also see which functions have been enabled and their parameterised settings.

The Schmersal SLC440 offers many integrated functions including fixed blanking, floating blanking, fixed blanking with movable edge region, double reset, contactor control (EDM), automatic mode, re-start mode, and beam coding. You can see which functions have been enabled and their parameterized settings.
