The goods supplied by SCAPS GmbH are designed to control a laser scanner system. The machine builder is solely responsible for strictly complying with all applicable and relevant country-specific safety regulations regarding installation and operation of the system.
The goods delivered by SCAPS GmbH must not take over any emergency stop and other safety relevant functions!
The Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC) does not apply to the products supplied by SCAPS GmbH, as there are no mechanical moving parts. Furthermore, no safety function according to the mentioned definition is realized via the USC and DSC/DSD modules.
Laser radiation can affect a person's health or otherwise cause irreparable damage. Compliance with all relevant laser safety regulations must be ensured prior to installation and operation.
Safe turn on procedure to avoid uncontrolled laser emission. Turn off procedure conversely (4 to 1), unless otherwise needed by the device.
1. Scanner controller
2. Peripheral devices
3. Scan system
The product is supplied without an enclosure. The machine builder is solely responsible for the strict compliance with all relevant country-specific safety regulations for the integration and operation of the delivered goods.
The Low Voltage Directive (2014/35/EU) does not apply to the products supplied by SCAPS GmbH, as the voltage supply of all products is below the 75 V direct current (DC) limit. Therefore, these fall outside the scope of the Low Voltage Directive.
The EMC Directive (2014/30/EU) does not apply to the products supplied by SCAPS GmbH, as these are not intended for the end user (person without knowledge of EMC) and are not otherwise made available on the market.
For any wiring, data or power cable connecting and disconnecting, make sure that all devices are turned off and the wires do not carry any voltage!
All cables should be only as long as needed to minimize coupling capacitance and coupling inductance. Especially unshielded cables should be as short as possible. Avoid ground loops.
Avoid long drain wires for the connection of the cable shield.
For differential data signals as for the scanhead (XY2-100) and encoder (MOTF), also connect the ground wires.
Power supplies, GND, Shield:
All power sources should be grounded, the potential difference of all power supplies should be below ±5 V. Advice: Use the same ground potential for all used devices if not otherwise needed (GND, Opto_GND, Laser_GND).
PE, shield and power supply: Refer to the manual of the power supply, respectively device manufacturer and stick to them exactly. Connect PE, used cable shields and ground potentials to the same potential if the electrical specifications allow this. Relevant country-specific safety regulations regarding installation and operation of the system must be checked.
Recommendation for shielded cables: Connect one side of the shielded cable to GND to avoid ground loops. For the 25-pin scanner or 37-pin Laser, I/O cable, this can be done with the solder jumper on the bottom side on the USC card (PE to GND, SJ 1 – to SJ 4) – please check the respective manual.
If needed for EMV issues it is also possible to connect both sides of the cable shield, this decision has to be taken by the machine builder and cannot be answered in general.
