Light curtain with PROFINET interface

With the PROFINET interface integrated in the CML 700i, Leuze electronic makes possible simple and fast integration of this light curtain in the fieldbus environment without additional gateway box and extra software.

Configuration is carried out directly via the large display, using Leuze Sensor Studio or directly via the PLC, which saves the settings and makes it possible for devices to be replaced without having to re-configure.

The CML 700i PROFINET model is equipped with an integrated switch for setting up a ring or linear topology. Through cascade mounting with a dead zone of just 23mm between beams, fast response times and the detection of transparent objects, this model is able to perform gapless object tracing, e.g: on conveyor lines.

The data can be transmitted with a speed of 100MBit/s.

Depending on the length (up to 2880mm), the measuring light curtain makes the data available cyclically within 1ms to 53ms.

The maximum length of the measurement data is 222 bytes, whereby the individual values of the individual beams can be output at any position.
