Light curtain controllers come in IP65-rated, lockable metal enclosure
Scientific Technologies Inc.'s LCM-100 series light curtain controllers come in a lockable metal enclosure that carries an environmental rating of NEMA 4, 12 (IP65).
The controllers are protected from water oversprays and dust while allowing easy but controlled access to the controller board. A fast response time permits the light curtains to be mounted close to hazardous operation points.
The controllers have options for 100- to 230-VAC power and relay safety outputs. A two-digit numerical display aids installation and troubleshooting, as well as MPCE monitoring, remote reset, exact channel select, and floating blanking. Additional features include a choice of automatic start, start/restart interlock, and start interlock operating modes. A DeviceNet option also is available.
