The new version of the IMS 100 NT provides a significantly higher level of detection performance. This improvement was achieved by modifying the illumination frequency. An increase of the light modulation frequency from 10 MHz to 40 MHz led to much better detection performance, especially for applications with highly reflective, shiny, or bright surfaces.
Safeguarding industrial doors with the GridScan/Pro
The further development of light curtains for safeguarding industrial doors has been successfully certified. A non-contact SIL2 protection for doors, GridScan/Pro is fit for universal application. EC type-tested, the system can be used as E-device at any door without additional approval of the door model.
Are the Swiss the world market leaders in quality? Well, we are, until we launch a product in Japan. Our Japanese customers painfully point out even the tiniest mistakes. And they demand highly detailed, step-by-step information until a sustainable solution to the problem has been found.
The annual CEDES Sales Meeting was held late February at the company headquarters in Landquart, Switzerland. From the product side, two key highlights formed the center of interest at this years’ venue.
The range of light barriers has been expanded with the launch of ELS 400. Thanks to the extremely compact design, an operating range of 5 m and the prepared mounting holes, the new ELS offers the possibility of integration into door profiles, even when space is limited. Optionally, double-sided adhesive tape can be used for mounting.
The newly launched radar sensor RDS 100 is a very reliable door activation sensor for all types of automatic door systems. In the wide monitoring area, approaching persons and objects are detected effectively and reliably. Thanks to the individually adjustable and large detection area of up to 4 m x 2 m along with a mounting height of 2.2 m, it is also suitable for industrial doors.
Investment in AI, artificial intelligence, is growing fast and omnipresent in all kind of machinery. After IoT “has connected” machines with machines and with human beings, AI is using those data to create intelligent results and dedicated measures. This helps machines to understand and to resolve situations autonomously.
