Welcome to the new world of safety light curtains with crossed-beam technology. Crossed-beam technology works differently than using a one-to-one matching transmitter and receiver. Each beam emitted by a transmitter can be scanned and recognized by multiple different receivers. This allows the safety light curtains to not require very precise alignment.

Crossed-beam technology allows for quick and easy installation, without the issue of misalignment or tripping due to vibration or impact. As long as the transmitter and receiver parts are facing each other, the safety light curtain will operate.
Crossed-beam technology also makes safety light curtains more suitable for use with dangerous machinery, as the beams pass through from all directions, preventing any objects from passing through undetected. This makes it ideal for the safety-first automation industry.
What are the benefits of using crossed-beam technology? Using crossed-beam technology can allow for higher accuracy with the same height of safety light curtains! Previously, a 20-beam safety light curtain with a 10mm spacing was required to protect a height of 200mm. Now, you can try using a crossed-beam safety light curtain with 10 beams and 20mm spacing. Although the distance between the light sources has increased, the precision is the same as before due to the application of the new technology. Additionally, by reducing the number of light sources, while the new crossed-beam technology may lead to a certain increase in cost, the total cost is actually lower than before!
For the central area of the safety protection, the resolution may change from 20mm to 10mm compared to the normal safety light curtain.
However, for the area near the receiver and transmitter, the resolution still depends on the beam gap, you should choose whether to use the “cross-beam type safety light curtain” according to the actual application scenario.
