Type 2 safety light curtain with integrated MUTING function and integrated control functions.
2-sensor Muting logic, with two-way or one-way operating logic.
Muting timeout. Muting enable. Override with two operating modes, selectable.
Integrated Start/Restart Interlock function. Integrated EDM (control of external contactors).
All configurations via hardware through 12-pole M16 main connector.

The excellent performance / price ratio makes Vision MXL the ideal choice for the protection of Type 2 applications with Muting.

Now also available the MXL L and MXL T versions with pre-wired and pre-aligned Muting sensors.

The MXL series is recommended for Muting applications: – Where personnel is supposed to access the area under control during the non-dangerous part of the machine cycle (e. g. manual load/unload of product). – For two-way transit of material through the gate to be controlled by the light curtain (e.g. palletizers).
– The MXL U series is recommended for Muting applications: For one-way transit (exit only) of material through the gate to be controlled by the light curtain (e.g.palletizers).
– The MXL L series manages the Muting function in one-way mode and is particularly suitable for protecting the outfeed gates of palletising systems.
– The MXL T series manages the Muting function in two-way mode for the protection of the infeed/outfeed gates in palletising systems.
