Photocells



Safety Photocells

 

Photocells have been the number 1 gate safety device since the industry began. Very simply one side fires an infrared beam at a detector which makes a NC (Normally Closed) circuit. When someone or something crosses the beam, the circuit is broken and the gate system reacts in the appropriate way.

There are 100s of different products on the market but we are going to talk about just a few of them here. We are going to look at what level of safety you can achieve with them and where they are most effective.

This can be thought of as your standard photocell, both sides are powered and your gate system will have a good first line of safety. 

  • Breaking the Infra-red beam triggers safety device
  • 15 meter range
  • NC fail safe switch for bullet proof reliability & and NO contact to act as a start input to activate gates
  • Simple to add to existing systems with straight forward wiring
  • Synch 2 sets of photocells together so they do not communicate. Allows 4 sets of photocells to work in close proximity
