Safety in motion
Banner Engineering Corp.’s AG4 Safety Laser Scanner uses pulses of Class 1 infrared laser light to locate the position of objects in its field of view, effectively protecting personnel by safeguarding both stationary and mobile hazards within a user-designated area. The AG4 safeguards irregularly shaped areas not suitable for a standard two-or three-piece safety light screen. It can also serve as replacement solution for high-maintenance safety mats that are routinely damaged by repetitive operation or adverse environments, the company said. The AG4 Safety Laser Scanner operates through the principle of diffuse reflectance (reflected light) to determine an object’s position via range (measured distance) and rotational angle. Once the AG4 protective and warning fields are configured, the position of the objects within the field of view are evaluated. If any are within a protective field, a safety stop signal is generated from the scanner. The AG4 can additionally be configured so that an intrusion in the warning field triggers an auxiliary output. This may be used to slow a mobile vehicle, flash a light, or initiate other actions to warn an individual who enters this field.
