LEUZE Lumiflex has expanded its product line of COMPACT Type 4 safety light curtains, available from Balluff Leuze , to include the new series COMPACTplus, offering added functions.
Depending on the application, the COMPACTplus can be equipped with the function packages standard or blanking. Soon to be added are muting, cyclical control or universal packages. This eliminates the need for using external control modules.
With inputs for reset switches and external device monitoring built in, along with an extra E-stop input, other external monitoring relays are minimised or eliminated.
In addition, a variety of output modules, such as semiconductor outputs, AS-interface Safety at Work, and soon to be released Relay, PROFIsafe and SafetyBUS p, allow the COMPACTplus to be flexibly integrated into the existing infrastructure.
An IR-diagnostics interface as well as a teach-in function provides user-friendliness. In-built alignment aid along with detailed onboard diagnostics allows quick commissioning and maximum system up time.
Mechanically compatible with the existing COMPACT range and also optically compatible with the COMPACT transmitters, allows minimal upgrade cost for those wishing to take advantage of the new functions or the increased features.
