Adding to its wide range of smart sensors, Delta Electronics is releasing a new range of area sensors, or safety light curtain. The AS Series offers a tough, slim, space-saving body conforming to IP-67 rating standards, allowing the sensor to operate in harsh environments with no dead zone curtains for detection.
With no-dead-zone detection and high reliability, the Area Sensors are easy to assemble, and ensure the safety of operators. The AS Series is a cost-effective option for many sectors, such as food and beverages, packaging, pharmacy, electronic component equipment, textiles, rubber and plastics, warehouses and machine tool industries.
With a shock resistance of 10G, the heavy duty AS Series can be used in environments where work pieces often strike the unit. The aluminium-framed structure ensures that there is no damage from shock, and the optical axes do not become misaligned if the device is struck by an object. The IP-67 rating means that it is protected from liquid projection. The high resistance also means longer operation and decreased downtime.
The AS Series is safe. These curtains have no unprotected zones, so 100 per cent of the curtain is utilised, and it features effective aperture angle inferior to 2.5 degrees. The AS Series sensors are available in 3 pitches: 10mm, 20mm and 40mm. Protect heights are from 1280mm to 1,920mm, when detection range is from 5 to 10m. Connection is made through a M12 connector with 200mm PVC cable.
The AS Series provides easy-to-install smart sensors which can be combined with Delta Electronics' global automation offering. For detailed information please visit www.deltaww.com.
