  1. Active Laser Guarding Enclosures

    Active Laser Guarding Enclosures
    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 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 of 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.
  2. Audio Alert

    Audio Alert

    We supply an audible warning device to deliver a pre-programmed message when triggered. When activated, the message can be heard from a speaker integrated into the compact unit. It can be triggered either by switching the unit on by applying 24VDC, or it can be triggered by an Infrared detector.

    For outside use the IP65 audible warning device is also available...

    Please contact us for more information.

  4. Curtains for lasers - Orcatina - the folding laser safety curtain

    Curtains for lasers - Orcatina - the folding laser safety curtain

    Orcatina laser safety curtains provide laser protection hanging on a pantograph folding mechanism. Also known as concertina style or accordian style curtains, the Orcatina curtains have two separate materials – one is the laser blocking material and the other is fabric that can be used to look smart and help with sound insulation.

    The folded laser blocking curtains use the minimum of space once drawn back to maximise the space in the room.

    There aren't any floor rails because the curtains are supported only by the upper rail structure mounted to the ceiling. The curtains are made from Lasermet’s Orca black and white, specially developed laser blocking material, used on Lasermet’s conventional laser blocking curtains and laser blocking roller blinds. They are certified to BS EN IEC 60825-4.

  9. ICS Buddy - Portable Interlock Controller

    ICS Buddy - Portable Interlock Controller

    ICS Buddy™  – the Interlock monitor and control tablet you can take anywhere

    The ICS Buddy is Lasermet’s portable Interlock Monitor and Controller that can be used to remotely view and control the status of laser interlock controllers and laser shutters in a lab.

    • It provides portable control. Just walk around with the tablet within Wi-Fi range.
    • Remotely view and control laser shutters – just use the local Wi-fi signal to stay in touch
    • See the status of the whole lab remotely in Lab View – ideal for and number of Interlocks, Shutters and LED Warning Signs

    ICS Buddy is a secondary interlock controller that duplicates the main controller installed at the lab door.

    It is a tablet that connects using the local Wi-Fi and it mirrors the main interlock controller located at the lab in use, but has much greater capability.

  10. Illuminated Laser Warning Signs

    Illuminated Laser Warning Signs
    Reduce interruptions and downtime in your laser facility with accurate indication of laser status All Class 3B and Class 4 lasers require interlocking to comply with standard laser safety practice. However, while this fulfils the safety requirements it can be inconvenient and even costly to have your laser shut down when an access door is opened. Such interruptions can be avoided either by using a locking interlock system (see interlocks), or by providing accurate information regarding your laser status by the use of illuminated signs, or both.
