Original Press Release:
Sophisticated Light Curtain for Elevator Doors
Buffalo Grove, IL - Carlo Gavazzi announces the launch of the BFL Series - a sophisticated light curtain for elevator doors. This new light curtain is loaded with features, yet incredibly simple to install and use.
Designed as a protective 'screen' for elevator doors, the BFL will reliably and safely detect people and objects in the door opening of elevators, preventing doors from closing while obstructed. It is provided in two beam configurations - 104 beams for standard applications, and 194 beams for applications that require detection of small objects throughout the height of the door (such as detecting forklifts entering service elevators). All versions feature a dual voltage input and have 6 output configurations in a single unit!
Additional features that enhance the durability and flexibility include 100,000 lux light immunity, so the BFL can be used in bright and outdoor installations. IP54 and IP65 versions ensure that the right environmental protection is available for any application. Blanking and timeout functions guarantee that the BFL will continue to work, even if there are permanent obstructions or damage to the BFL.
The BFL is supplied with 4m of cable, color coded by transmitter and receiver for simple installation and maintenance. The light curtains are UL approved and CE marked, giving assurance of a high quality and safe product. It is available from Carlo Gavazzi's North American network of sales offices / distributors or www.GavazziOnline.com.
