Safety light grid with muting

July 2020 IS & Ex

The new generation of safety light grids from ifm electronic allows for the muting mode without an external junction box or a muting relay being required, as they are already integrated into the receiving element. The supported muting versions are available as either crossbeam or parallel muting. Both versions allow transported material to be safely passed in or out, via the protected area. A status light, integrated into the receiver, allows for indication of the operating status.

The muting arms can easily be directly installed on the light grid and are available in two versions: either as muting arms with multi-beam sensors, similar to a miniature light grid, or as a pre-mounted mounting set with single-beam sensors. No complex installation and adjustments are necessary anymore. In conclusion, a complete package for increased safety, configured for any application, quick and easy to mount.

Benefits include:

• Easy connection of the muting sensors directly to the safety light grid.

• Muting arms with pre-mounted sensors for rapid setup.

• Parallel or crossbeam muting version for detection of variable object sizes.

• Integrated status light.

• User-friendly configuration via hardware wiring.
