New cost effective safety light curtains

A new era of safety light curtains has been heralded with the miniTwin. For the first time, transmitter and receiver elements are combined in a miniature housing stick.
No other safety light curtain currently achieves the plug-and-play level of SICK’s miniTwin. This has been made possible by the application-oriented mounting solution. Electrical connection takes place via a standard connection cable and 5-pin M12 system connector, and offers the full functionality of external device monitoring (EDM) and Reset. Their optional configuration takes place during the power-up cycle, following electrical connection – automatically in the case of EDM, and by pressing a button for Reset.

The continuous row of LED indicators along the entire length of the device is a further special feature. It serves as an alignment aid, status indicator and diagnostic tool, and provides visual user-friendly delineation of the protective field on both sides of the sensor pair.
