SF2C safety light curtain

  • SF2C safety light curtain

Ultra-slim safety light curtain with LED indicators, Type 2

The compact safety light curtains with a thickness of only 13.2mm come in an ultra light polycarbonate enclosure. They are available as a hand protection type with a beam pitch of 20mm, allowing you to detect objects as small as 25mm in diameter. The light curtains are delivered with a 3-meter cable and mounting brackets (MS-SFC-1).


  • Easy beam axis alignment due to large aperture angle
  • Less mounting effort due to reduced wiring
  • Slim size for compact applications
  • Very lightweight due to polycarbonate  enclosure
  • Optimum small width of only 13.2mm
  • Interference prevention output
  • IP67 protection
