The MICRO-SCREEN(TM) compact point-of-operation guarding system is for smaller production machines. Using an optoelectronic emitter, receiver, and controller, the system generates an infrared light screen between personnel and hazardous machine components. When any beams are broken, the system takes less than 38 millisecs to send a "stop" signal to the guarded machine. MICRO-SCREEN miniature emitters and receivers measure 1.25 X 1 inches, and are available in lengths from 4 to 48 inches in 4-inch increments.
