MICRON Measurement Light curtains

Light curtains for measurement, automation and control

Light curtains for industrial and civil applications where it is necessary to detect,measure, and recognise objects. Depending on the number and position of the beams engaged by an object, Micron can provide real time information to a PLC or PC in order to: detect the presence or absence of objects, perform a count, detect a position, detect ashape or a profile, measure dimensions. Models MI AV: equipped with two analog outputs (0/10 VDC) with programmable functions and two programmable digital outputs. Models MI AC: equipped with two analog outputs (4/20 mA) with programmable functions and two programmable digital outputs. Models MI B: equipped with an RS 485 serial interface with programmable functions and two programmable digital outputs. Models MI C: equipped with two antivalent solid state outputs. MicronConfigurator software for PC, with graphic user interface, is supplied with each light curtain (models A and B only). Models A and B are provided with an M5 4-pole connector for parameter configuration and monitoring ofthe light curtain.
