Technical data
Light curtains for measurement, automation and control

3 models available in relations to the outputs.

The Metronconf Configuration software for PC, with graphic user interface, is supplied with each light curtain (models A and B only).

Beam spacing available: 5 ... 75 mm.

Controlled height: 140 ... 2525 mm.

Max. range:

  • 2 m - models with beams spacing 5 mm
  • 6 m - models with beams spacing 25, 50, 75 mm
  • 16 m - models with beams spacing 10, 30mm

Connections with M12 and M16 connectors. Up to 50 m of electrical connections with unshielded cables.

Possibility of connection of up to 8 Metron B light curtains as nodes of an RS-485 serial line for simultaneous detection of multiple dimensions and complex measurements.

  • Measurement of the height of objects in transit on conveyor systems
  • Quality control: verification of presence, absence or position of holes
  • Two-dimensional detection of objects in transit on conveyor systems with use of 2 light curtains
  • Automatic warehouses
  • Measurement and identification of cylinders of various sizes
  • Detection of position and profile of pieces in automatic painting systems
  • Loop control
  • Quality control: verification of correct positioning of objects
  • Detection of overall dimensional limits of vehicles for vehicle handling in automatic parking garages
  • Measurement of the width and position of panels or sheets of material in transit on roller units or conveyor belts
