SpaceScan SS01-IO Light Curtain Series
Jul 01, 2023
The new SpaceScan SS 01-IO series is a new high performance and robust self contained, IO-Link configurable light curtain series from Telco which generates a dense infrared multi-beam light grid and offers a sensing range of 10 metres with high excess gain. The series is available in a wide array of lengths, ranging from just 160 mm up to 1980 mm, making it suitable for almost any application.
The light curtains are housed in sturdy black anodised, aluminium 33 x 36 mm (w x d) profiles , which are fully sealed for an IP67 rating and designed to withstand severe vibrations and shock. The design incorporates a T-slot for flexible and universal mounting, with the use of T mounting fixtures, which are included.
The entire range is offered in three different versions, differentiated by the spacing of the channels (diodes) and is available with spacing increments of 20 mm, 10 mm and 5 mm. The smallest spacing of 5 mm ensures a very dense grid of light beams and the highest resolution in the active area, for detection of the smallest parts. The SS 01-IO offers 4 to 384 channels, depending on the chosen model which varies by length and channel spacing.
The high gain performance of the system, together with its durable mechanical construction, ensures that the light curtains will operate reliably and uncompromisingly in applications with severe contamination and harsh environments, including water spray, heavy fog, mist, dust, dirt and industrial/process contamination. The optical design of the SpaceScan series guarantees easy alignment of the light curtain pair.
The SS 01-IO series is equipped with an IO-Link communication interface which allows a variety of process parameter and setting to be configured and monitored, which includes:
long (10 m) or short (4 m) range, light / dark selection, parallel or cross scanning beams, hole detection, smoothing (pre-filtering) function, on/off time delay, one-shot timer and blanking function.
The series allows each beam to be individually monitored, which may be used for a wide range of geometrical analysis functions, which may be used for measurement, positioning and monitoring.
The series operates with an advanced automatic sensitivity adjustment, which ensures that no onsite set up or adjustments are required. The signal level of each individual channel is monitored and adjusted automatically, which compensates for misalignment and contamination during operation.
The SS 01-IO series operates with a 12-30 V dc supply voltage and offers a push/pull output. The light curtains are fitted each with a 50 cm pigtail with a moulded 5-pin, M12 plug for quick-disconnect assembly.
The light curtains can be monitored via integral LED indicators mounted in the front face-lens of the units. The system includes a power-on, output and system/signal status indicator.
The transmitter and receiver pair are electrically synchronised to guarantee optimal performance and reliability in all operating conditions – and ensuring high switching frequency without compromising high power and sensing range. Furthermore, the system has a high light immunity of 100k lux promising problem-free operation even with direct exposure to extraneous light.
