Safety sensors - simplified and without limitations
Specifying, ordering, fitting and setting up light guard installations for virtually every application are easy tasks with the new all-in-one MS28/MS48 safety light curtains from Omron.
Unlike conventional light curtain designs that make it necessary for specifiers to choose from a wide range of potentially confusing options, the MS28/MS48 range features a small number of products, each of which can be easily and quickly configured by the user to suit the needs of the application.
MS28 light curtains are suitable for Type 2 applications, while MS48 products are designed for Type 4 applications, complying with EN 61946 Part 1. The series includes 14mm finger protection models, with a maximum operating range of 7m, covering protection heights from 280mm to 1800mm. Also available are 30mm hand protection models with a maximum range of 20m, covering protection heights from 240mm to 2120mm. Rapid alignment is ensured by an innovative alignment aid that uses intuitive LED indication and instantly shows whether adjustment is correct or incorrect.
The light curtains incorporate a simple switch arrangement that allows them to be set up and put into operation without the need to use any external programming equipment. Standard models feature options for external device monitoring, restart interlock, range reduction and a scan code selection option. For demanding applications, a multifunctional version adds facilities for muting and for fixed and floating blanking.
