S = Safe Distance
K= (1.6 – 2 m/s)
T= Time for machine to come to a complete stop
C= Deep Penetration Factor also known as DPF
However, depending on the specific Light Curtain mounting, this formula could have some variations. As a result, we recommend reviewing ISO 13855 for further details. Once implemented, you will be required to measure the stop time with a certified device and validate the safety distance.
