In this video from the how to series, Beckwood Press Company highlights a standard Inch & Semi-Auto operation for a hydraulic press. The Beckwood Press model is from their DJ Series Benchtop Press line, and includes a light curtain feature (which is demonstrated). Ryan Pendleton, from Beckwood, runs the press in both Inch and Semi-Auto Mode. In Semi-Auto Mode, he intentionally breaks the light curtain guard to show the safety feature.
