LIGHT CURTAINS FOR MEASUREMENT, AUTOMATION AND CONTROL

12-06-2018

Reer Micron light curtains, available now from Treotham, are suitable for both 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, the Micron light curtain can provide real-time information to a PLC or PC in order to detect the presence or absence of objects, count intrusions, detect a position, detect a shape or a profile, and measure dimensions.

The light curtains are available with the beams spacing 5, 10, 25, 30, 50 and 75mm. Up to three Micron B light curtains can be connected at the same time as nodes on an RS485 serial line for simultaneous detection of multiple dimensions and complex measurements.
