    Simple diagnostics Take advantage of comprehensive on-site diagnostics via smartphone app and NFC interface.

    Invest in a secure and profitable future with deTec

    The deTec unites safety and automation in one sensor

    In addition to a high level of safety, intelligent safety sensors also offer a wide range of automation options. The deTec4 product variant not only protects people, but also provides valuable data for downstream process steps via IO-Link. This means you don’t need as many sensors. The sensor also makes a valuable contribution to the mobile maintenance of your machines or plants.
    Versatile automation options Use extensive process data for downstream automation processes, e.g. for height measurements.
    More efficient cause analysis Comprehensive service data allows you to perform predictive maintenance, e.g. when sensors start to get dirty, and for quick and easy cause analysis.

    Increase the level of automation and process transparency of your machines and plants

    From a single mold and always flexible

    The deTec safety light curtain is ready for use in no time at all. Thanks to the uniform housing design, standardized connectivity, and practical accessories, implementation into the machine design is always equally simple.
    Flexible connection design Thanks to its high modularity, the deTec allows for functions to be activated quickly and easily by means of the appropriate system plug for each application, and completely without software.
    Simple housing design All devices of the deTec and deTem product families have a uniform housing and mounting concept as well as standard cables – product-specific accessories are included.

    Benefit from minimal cabling, installation and configuration work

    Safety light curtains for the strict requirements of your industry

    Depending on the area of application, the topic of safety encompasses other aspects: in food production and processing, hygiene standards must also be taken into account. In explosion-hazardous areas, it is a matter of compliance with explosion protection standards. In the machine tool industry, the resistance of the safety light curtain to the chemicals in coolants, lubricants and cleaners often plays a decisive role. When protecting machines and systems, there are also high requirements for shock and vibration resistance and thus sensor availability.
    High hygiene standards With its easy-to-clean housing made of food-safe plastic and stainless steel, the deTec IP69K is ideal for protecting washdown zones.
    Explosive areas Different Ex zones can be protected by different deTec variants.
    Resistant to chemicals The deTec HG variants with a front screen made of chemically-hardened float glass is especially resistant to coolants and lubricants.

    Take advantage of the wide range of applications of the deTec
