Point and Shoot V200 and V300 Safety Camera offers hassle-free guarding.
The V200 and V300 are the latest safety cameras from SICK for machine guarding applications.
The benefits of the V200/V300 are both financial and operational. Purchase costs are lower compared to a typical light curtain, the installation time is shorter and alignment and commissioning needs no specialist equipment or training.
Suitable for rectangular openings and access points, the installation process could not be easier. Simply mount the V200/V300 in the most convenient corner of the opening, apply the rugged reflector strip along two opposite adjacent lengths and press the teach button.
The reflector strip forms a background target for the V200/V300 and the device has a detection capability equivalent to a 20mm resolution light curtain. The device can cope with dirt build up and what would appear to be serious scratching or damage to the reflective strip before it needs replacing. Even so, a new adhesive strip can be replaced and the device reset with a “push to teach” function in a matter of minutes.
Whether you are an end user, supplier or machine builder, the V200/V300 offers many logistical advantages. Each device can be taught to protect different size openings and the unit itself is no bigger than a traditional SLR camera. This means that factories with many applications can be supported by fewer spare parts and limits the necessity for many different lengths of light curtain to be stocked.
Fully equipped with Reset and External Device Monitoring (EDM) the V200/V300 will interface with standard light curtain relays, SICK muting modules and controllers without any changes. The result is a versatile, easy to use system.
For applications where the hazard is estimated to require SIL2, Category 3 (EN ISO 13849) or Performance Level (PL) d (EN ISO 13849), use the V300 device.
For applications where the hazard is estimated to require SIL1, Category 2 (EN ISO 13849) or Performance Level (PL) c (EN ISO 13849), use the V200 device.
