Omron Scientific Technologies introduces the OS32C Safety Laser Scanner, a compact Type 3 scanner for use with automatic guided vehicles (AGVs).
The new scanner can provide 270 degree monitoring from a single unit, or 360 degree monitoring with two units. For complex AGV applications, up to 70 monitoring combinations can be set. Each zone set combination provides two warning zones of up to 32 feet that can be set by the user to support various purposes (such as making a warning sound or reducing speed) and one safety zone of up to 10 feet that, if breached, will trigger an emergency stop.
In addition, users can quickly and easily configure the safety and warning zones with the OS32C's easy-to-use configuration software and a PC. Because each safety laser scanner's configuration is stored in the I/O block, the scanner can be quickly replaced in the event of damage, with no reprogramming needed.
