Pre-aligned muting sensors from Leuze

July 2014 Sensors & Transducers

System manufacturers wishing to implement access guarding with muting are often confronted with the problem that numerous individual components need to be selected, ordered, installed and matched to one another. Pre-mounted Leuze light beam safety device systems offer a solution. The new Leuze MLDSET with either 2 or 3 beam safety and with or without muting can be implemented easily and cost effectively.

These sets also contain a deflecting mirror and the new UDC device column to which the pre-aligned muting sensor sets can be fitted at the required height and connected to the Leuze MLD light beam safety device via an internal local connection box.

These muting sensor sets are lateral mounting arms that have already been equipped with muting light beam devices from the Leuze 25B series, meaning they are pre-mounted and aligned. These light beam devices have demonstrated good and reliable detection performance on shrink wrapped pallets.

The UDC device column enables easy mounting, for example on roller conveyors and palette transfer stations, due to its spring-mounted foot-free standing which is firmly anchored on the floor. Precise vertical and axial alignment is an easy option. Spring elements in the foot of the columns also ensure automatic resetting after mechanical impacts.

The Leuze light beam safety device sets fulfil the requirements for a modern, appealing and robust system design. They are also available with an optional display and control unit. This control box is equipped for direct mounting on the fixed guarding, and has a reset button for the start/restart interlock and for overriding following a muting fault (muting restart/override).
