Safety Light Curtains MLC 500

MLC Series 500 Leuze, newest extraordinarily robust light curtains type 4 generation. Levels of functions - "Basic, Standard and Extended" - allow efficient use of equipment in all areas. Has pinout according to AIDA, AS-i interface integrated safety classes IP67 / 69K versions and impact resistance.


  • Automatic reset
  • Optimum handling
  • Prevents sensors affect each other thanks to the choice of transmission channels and, if necessary, by reducing the scope
  • Universal application using standard functions
  • Short delivery times with a global availability
  • QR code on the sensor to quickly access information service
  • Reducing the scope if necessary
  • Basic functions such as manual / automatic reset (RES), monitoring (EDM)
  • By selecting optimum handling function without PC and LED indicator and 7-segment display with integrated alignment aid 3 areas
  • Applicable hazardous areas Group II, Category 3, Zone 2 (gas) and Zone 22 (dust)
  • Integrated muting time control for a provisional specific suppression of the protective function, p function. eg. to transport material through the protective field
  • Fixed or floating blanking, reduced resolution: it is always necessary when service by imperatives must be no objects in the protective field
  • Different scan modes: to adapt the availability select SingleScan, DoubleScan or MaxiScan
  • Teaching without PC: parameterization and learning, p. eg. a floating blanking, they are simple and fast
  • Smart function Gating Process integrated process control along with control of the facility; no muting sensors are needed
  • It allows the compact design of the facilities, saving valuable space
  • Reduced risk and increased reliability for high availability manipulations installation
