Persistence Market Research
Safety light curtains are photo-electric devices used to safeguard people around heavy machineries, such as palletizers, winders and presses. These are sensors integrated into light curtains that receive a transmitter’s array of IR beams. If a worker breaks any beam by passing through that area, the light curtain sensor sends a stop order to the guarded machinery to ensure the safety of the worker.
Light curtain sensors are ergonomically sound in comparison to mechanical barriers or guards as they are programmed to cut the power to the machinery instantly to avoid injuries. These sensors fall under the presence detection equipment category. Light curtain sensors are cost-effective and reliable and help in proper maintenance and increasing the long run efficiency of the floor machinery.
These days, light curtain sensors are being used in elevators to ensure that nobody or nothing gets stuck in between the elevator doors. Also, such sensors are compact in size and easy to install, even in small spaces and hard to reach spots.
Light Curtain Sensors Market: Drivers & Challenges
Cost-saving installation, maintenance and upgrades provided by safety light curtain vendors in the market are expected to drive the global Light Curtain Sensors Market. Also, stringent industrial safety standards legislated by governments across the world will compel industrial manufacturers to integrate light curtain sensors and other presence detection equipment in their work space. The attractiveness of industrial automation is expected to boost the global Light Curtain Sensors market.
However, the requirement of timely maintenance might hinder the growth of the light curtain sensors market. In case of failure, the equipment offers no contingency plan. Also, IR beams are not visible to the naked eye and hence, a worker, assuming the sensors to be working, might get hurt badly.
