Omron OS3101 Laser Safety Scanner

20070402.jpgUsing harmless laser light to detect intrusions into a guarded area, Omron’s OS3101 Laser Safety Scanner offers an intuitive and easy-to-use solution that can drastically improve workplace safety and productivity in facilities where people and machinery work together in close contact. By allowing users to designate a warning zone, which initiates an alert signal when workers approach a dangerous area, and a safety zone that automatically shuts down machinery if breached, the scanner prevents unnecessary machinery downtime due to inadvertent worker intrusion, thus ensuring safety while maintaining productivity.
