Similar to KEYENCE SL-V Series safety light curtains, muting sensors signal the scanner to ignore certain areas of the protection zone to allow passage of a target. However, unlike light curtains, muting the scanner results in a much tighter protection zone, minimizing dead zones around the passing target.

Maintain safe conditions

For vertical guarding (access protection), reference points are required
to prevent changes from creating an unsafe condition (e.g. removal of a door or hard guard, unintended or even deliberate misalignment of the scanner). Configuring reference points with our user-friendly software
can be done in seconds. If the reference points are breached, a stop signal is sent, preventing a potentially unsafe situation. (Reference Point Monitoring function)

Can be easily installed anywhere due to its light-weight and super-compact body

Light-weight and Super-compact body

The SZ Series installs easily for vertical guarding or access protection
applications. Compared to conventional scanning devices, the SZ offers smaller overall footprint and lighter weight, enabling simple installation. A variety of mounting brackets are available to help reduce installation time for any application, vertical or horizontal.

Can be placed in almost any position to guard the desired area[SZ-01S] [SZ-04M]

Configuring zones with conventional scanners is unforgiving and inflexible.
The simple, intuitive drawing tools of the SZ Configurator software make it easy to create protection zones to the left, right or directly along the scanner's centerline. This allows the user to choose the most convenient location to mount the scanner.
