The Laser Jailer active laser guarding system combines an inherently fail-safe laser detection technique and Lasermet's proven laser interlock control system technology to create an active laser guarding system which is fail safe to Machinery Directive Standard EN13849-1.
The Laser Jailer active laser guarding system is designed to contain a high powered laser beam in a laser enclosure which is smaller and lighter than would otherwise be necessary. It comprises an outer passive enclosure and an inner active enclosure made up of detector tiles which are connected to Lasermet's ICS interlock system.
Lasermet's fail-safe technology isolates the laser safety input in less than 50ms. The laser machine responds to this laser termination signal and laser radiation is terminated – the actual laser termination time being dependent on the laser machine in use.
Laser Jailer features include:
Active and passive laser enclosures
Lightweight modular, scalable design
Retrofits to existing rooms/enclosures
Rapid turnkey solution using proven design
Conforms to laser safety standards EN/IEC 60825-4
Virtually any size of active laser enclosure can be accommodated from small enclosures to full, room-size laser shelters containing robot welding machines. The fully commissioned laser cabin will then act as an effective laser barrier and beam stopper to confine the laser beam within the laser protective cabin.
