ULISSE is a Type 2 safety photocell with metal body and 3-pole M8 connector.

The protection system can be composed of 1, 2, 3 or 4 single beam
photocells connected to an AU SX standard or AU SXM control unit with Muting, or connected to Mosaic safety controller

Thanks to the very small size, the anodised aluminium case and the glass lenses free from electrostatic dust attraction, ULISSE is the ideal solution for the protection of weaving machines as well as of other applications characterised by high levels of mechanical stress or very restricted spaces.
