Safety Laser Scanner


Compact (104.5 mm), lightweight (1.3 kg) and easy-to-install Safety Laser Scanner

Operating state can be determined at a glance

Eight sector indicators* show the direction of intrusion.
Front display shows operating state and error codes.

* US patent No. for individual sector indicators: US 6,753,776 B2

OS32C Features 1

Integrated management via Ethernet

Industry's first Ethernet-compliant Safety Laser Scanner allows the user to check operating state and analyze the cause of an emergency stop via LAN even in large-scale applications using multiple scanners.

* Multiple OS32Cs cannot be monitored simultaneously.

OS32C Features 2

Setting 70 combinations

For complex AGV applications, up to 70 combinations - each with one safety zone and two warning zones - can be set. The two warning zones can be set to support various purposes such as warning sound and speed control.

OS32C Features 3

Simplified Wiring

OMRON STI's innovative I/O method requires fewer inputs when configuring multiple zones. Only 4 inputs are required to select from 6 zone sets.
If all 8 inputs are used, up to 70 zone sets are available.

OS32C Features 5
OS32C Features 6

Response time can be set from 80 ms to 680 ms

Response time adjustment can filter out erroneous detections (machine stoppage) caused by pollutants in the environment.

Provides Safety Category 3 safety circuit without a dedicated controller

Compliant to global safety standards

OS32C Features 8

Operating Theory of OS32C

The OS32C uses time-of-flight (TOF) measurement to determine distance. The scanner emits a laser pulse, when the pulse hits an object the signal is reflected to the scanner. The OS32C then compares the distance/position of the object against the defined safety zone.

New convenient and easy-to-use functions

Replacable sensor, no reprogramming needed

No reprogramming needed, the configuration is stored in the I/O block. Replacing a damaged sensor is fast and easy.

OS32C Features 11

Reference Boundary Monitoring function

The OS32C constantly monitors reference points and turns OFF the safety outputs when a shift in its position is detected.
(Per international standard IEC 61496-3, area scanners used in applications where the angle of approach exceeds +/- 30 degrees with respect to the detection plane, must use RBM in the detection zone.)

OS32C Features 12

Cable Access Options

To tailor the OS32C to your installation, two options are available for the location of the power and ethernet connections:
OS32C-BP/OS32C-BP-DM (Cable access from the back)
OS32C-SP1/OS32C-SP1-DM (Cable access from the left side)
These can be selected according to the needs of AGV or facilities design.

OS32C Features 13

Easy configuration of complex zones

The configuration of the safety zone and warning zones can be done in real time using a PC. Configurations can also be created or modified offline.

OS32C Features 14

EtherNet/IPTM for Status and Measurement Data

The OS32C system status, zone status, and measurement data can all be monitored over EtherNet/IP.
