Product Description

Eight channel multiplexed system with manual and automatic operation modes.

Menu-driven setup allows individual parameter setting for each channel:

  • automatic mode with 4 levels, manual mode with 2 levels
  • manual gain setting
  • light/dark switchmode
  • switching delay (on/off) 0-60 s

Sensor error monitoring shows error messages on the LCD display during normal operation. Info screens for each channel indicate the current settings and performance.

Detailed performance and error information are indicated in diagnostic mode, making troubleshooting easy. In curtain mode output signals are summarized on one single output. Multiple ISM units can be synchronized using the master slave function, up to 40 virtually independent beams.

Test input for functional test by external test equipment. The analog output allows various measurements.

LED indicators for output signal and error per each channel. Alarm indicator, alarm and error output. Electronic output stage (PhotoMOS). Test input for functional test by external test equipment. Plug connector version for easy installation.

Computer interface for remote diagnostic and remote programming.
