Light grid with integrated muting

October 2019 IS & Ex

The new generation of light grids from ifm electronic incorporates 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 set with single-beam sensors. No complex installation and adjustments are necessary anymore. In conclusion, ifm now offers a complete package for increased safety, configurable depending on application, and quick and easy to mount.
