Type 4 safety light curtains

The MLC 500 series includes the newest generation of extremely sturdy type 4 safety light curtains. Three function classes – Basic, Standard and Extended – enable the most efficient use of devices from simple standard applications to complex controlled safeguarding processes. The devices can be used universally, due to the flexible fastening concept and the option of form-locking installation. In addition, the series offers custom solutions for further areas of application. These include extra slim design, AIDA-compliant pin assignment, integrated AS-i interface, protection classes IP67/69K as well as especially impact-resistant, cascadable or EX-certified models.

The type 4 Standard models with function extension

The Standard version of these type 4 safety light curtains features a start/restart interlock (RES) and contactor monitoring (EDM) for increased performance – and it is simple to handle and integrate into your systems. Reaching under and stepping behind protection as well as rear zone guarding can be efficiently implemented with the cascadable model.

  • Basic functions such as automatic start/restart, start/restart interlock (RES), contactor monitoring (EDM)
  • Optimal handling due to function selection without PC as well as LED and 7-segment display with integrated 3-zone alignment aid
  • Prevention of mutual interference of the sensors by selectable transmission channels and range reduction, if applicable
  • Models for cascading up to three devices facilitate easy implementation of reaching under and stepping behind protection as well as rear zone guarding
  • Short delivery times and global availability
  • QR code on the sensor for quick service information

MLC 520-S

Product selector

The type 4 standard models in extra slim design

This model is particularly useful whenever perfect integration with the machine’s design is required. It features an extra slim design of only 15.4 mm and a fine gradation of the protective field height with a 30 mm grid. Together with the dead zone-free device concept and optional cascading, the permissible safety distances can be optimally utilized.

  • Basic functions such as automatic start/restart, start/restart interlock (RES) and contactor monitoring (EDM)
  • Perfect integration in the machine design due to extra slim design of only 15.4, device design without dead zones and fine length gradation in 30 mm grid
  • Optimal handling due to function selection without PC as well as LED indicators with alignment aid
  • Cascading function for up to three devices for easy implementation of reaching under and stepping behind protection

MLC 520 EX2

Product selector

The type 4 model for use in potentially explosive areas

The MLC 520 EX2 series is certified for use in potentially explosive areas of group II, category 3, zone 2 (gas) and zone 22 (dust). The function range of these type 4 safety light curtains corresponds to the MLC 520 standard version and thus also offers a start/restart interlock (RES) and contactor monitoring (EDM) for increased performance – with very simple handling and integration.

  • Basic functions such as automatic start/restart, start/restart interlock (RES), contactor monitoring (EDM)
  • Optimal handling due to function selection without PC as well as LED and 7-segment display with integrated 3-zone alignment aid
  • Prevention of mutual interference of the sensors by selectable transmission channels and range reduction, if applicable
  • Short delivery times and global availability
  • QR code on the sensor for quick service information
  • Approved for use in potentially explosive areas of group II, category 3, zone 2 (gas) and zone 22 (dust)

The type 4 Extended model with lots of extras for your individual requirements

Whenever you need additional control functions, the MLC 530 Extended version is the perfect choice. With its 5 different operating modes, the integrated muting function and 3 different scan modes, the sensor leaves almost nothing to be desired. Device linking enables the construction of 2-channel, contact-based safety circuits as well as serial connections of several devices with safety-related switching outputs (OSSD).

  • Integrated function for timing controlled muting for temporary proper bridging of the protective function, e.g. when transporting materials through the protective field
  • Fixed or floating beam blanking, reduced resolution: necessary whenever objects must be in the protective field for operational reasons
  • Different scan modes: to adjust availability, select SingleScan, DoubleScan or MaxiScan
  • Teaching without PC: configuration and teaching, e.g. of floating beam blanking, is quick and easy

Sensor-free muting

The MLC 530 SPG Smart Process Gating variant is the specialist for access guarding with material transport. It allows for a particularly compact system design as it works without the use of muting sensors. Process control takes place here in combination with the system controller. This provides a high level of protection against tampering and at the same time a high degree of availability.

  • Integrated Smart Process Gating function for process control together with the system controller, no muting sensors necessary
  • Allows the system to be very compact and thus saves valuable space
  • Optimal handling due to function selection without PC as well as LED and 7-segment display with integrated 3-zone alignment aid
  • Reduced risk of tampering and increased reliability for a high degree of system availability
