Telco Measuring Light Curtains
The SS 02 series is an advanced, industrial measuring light curtain system which consists of a self-contained transmitter SST and receiver SSR, which can either be positioned opposite or next to each other for thru beam or diffuse proximity mode. The detectors are housed in sturdy aluminium profiles (33 x 36 mm) with T-slot mounting rail, available in lengths ranging from 300 mm to 1980 mm.
The SS 02 series is a highly advanced light curtain system that supports a wide range of geometrical analysis functions which may be used for measurement, positioning and monitoring functions. The system is fully programmable with the use of Telco’s user friendly PC software via RS-485 serial communication, connected with a USB converter. The graphical user interface allows a wide range of parameters and settings to be programmed and monitored in the connected light curtain system. These selectable/adjustable settings include: scan mode, operation mode, gain control/mode, hysteresis, blanking function and smoothing (pre-filtering) function. The light curtain offers a 2-wire analogue output (4-20 mA or 0-10 V) and up to four individual digital outputs which can be individually configured with a selection of a wide range of measurement and output conditions. A digital input is included to switch between two different output readings on the analogue output.
The software displays a graphical representation of the individual light beams status in real time, and indication of the individual output/input status. Configuration of a light curtain can be saved and loaded into other light curtains for simplified configuration of multiple systems.
A test input in the SST may be used for either disabling or enabling the transmitting power temporarily for test purposes. The transmitter and receiver are electrically synchronised by wire connection. Both transmitter and receiver detectors are protected against reverse polarity of power supplies, control inputs and output signals. Output is protected against short circuit and inductive loads.
