Controller Allows for Closer Safety Light Curtain Mounting, Increased Productivity
FREMONT, CA - Scientific Technologies, Inc. introduces the LCM Series Controller designed for use with their MC4700 and MS4700 Series safety light curtains. Ultra-fast response time combined with the 12 mm resolution of the 4700 series safety light curtain allows the safety light curtain svstem to be mounted closer to machinery pinch points, resulting in increased productivity.
Removable terminal blocks and a two-digit numeric display assist in rapid installation and troubleshooting. Two PNP solid-state safety outputs reduce response time and increase reliability. Additional features include: three user-selectable operating modes (Automatic Start, Start/Restart Interlock, and Start Interlock); MPCE monitoring; remote reset; Exact Channel Select; Floating Blanking; 100 mm DIN enclosure with removable terminal blocks; and two auxiliary outputs with follow mode or alarm mode.
An optional DeviceNet interface allows the controller to communicate non-safety data across the fieldbus. An optional "Multiple Channel Select" version enables eight patterns of masked beams to be stored and recalled as needed. This feature allows for a quick setup change when material of different sizes needs to be inserted in to the protected area.
