Technical data
Ilion is a Type 2 safety photocell with M18 cylindrical metal body

The Ilion photocells must be connected to control unit for esample: standard AU SX or AU SXM control unit with Muting or Mosaic to form a protection system that can be composed of 1, 2, 3 or 4 single beam photocells.

In case of connection with Mosaic safety controller, the number of photocells depends to the configuration of the protection system. (For details on the interface see AU SX, AU SXM and Mosaic control units).
