Measuring Light Curtains are able to be in length, width and height measurement as well as positioning, hole-detection or multi-dimensional contour scanning. Please enquire for further information and the availability of similar products.
One of the fastest measuring light curtain is prepared for nearly every application. Wether length-, width-, hight measurement, positioning, hole-detection or multidimensional contour scanning, all these applications are no problem for the KONTURflex by Leuze lumiflex. With the convenient Windows User-Software a quick and easy configuration to the actual measurement task can be made. Light axis distances of 5, 10, 20 and 40 mm and housing length up to 3200 mm are available. The control unit QUATTRO allows the connection of up to 4 pairs of optical profiles, does the precalculation of the measurement datas like maximum/ minimum calculation and transfers the data by a MOD-Bus or Profibus DP Interface to the connected control unit e.g. PLC.
Advantages • Control unit QUATTRO-DP with an integrated PROFIBUS DP terminal unit • Easy project engineering and parameterization via GSD file • For measuring lengths, widths and heights, positioning, detecting holes… • Multi-dimensional contour detection, up to 4 light curtains can be connected to one control unit • Quick measurement detection with a scanning rate of 50 µs per light axis • Diverse measurement data functions (maximums, minimums, trajectory function, hole detection, blanking, single beam evaluation)
SCAN - Measuring Light Curtains
Optoelectronic measurement technology does not have to be complicated. Consisting of a transmitter and a receiver, SCAN light curtains operate much like a light barrier. Infrared beams projected from the transmitter to the receiver produce a grid-type measurement field. The status of the individual light axes (”light path unobstructed” or ”light path interrupted”) is stored in the receiver. This data is then transmitted via serial interface and an PLC driver program directly into the working memory of the connected PLC control, where it can be further processed depending on the requirements of the application. For performing simple detection tasks, the presence of objects in the measurement field is indicated by means of a pnp output.
Advantages • Measurement field up to 6 m wide, from 900 mm to 3000 mm high • 30 mm resolution at every position of the measurement field • Can be connected directly to the PLC control (e.g. Siemens S7-200) • pnp switch output for measurement field status • Simple connection due to M12 connector • Possible to link measurement fields by cascading devices • Contamination and error signal output to the PLC • Compact design (17 mm x 33 mm)
