Auto Blanking - (AB) Option

Triad's advanced "Auto-Blank" option is unique because it will automatically blank out only the required number of beams needed to accept an obstruction such as a conveyor, bracket or fixture. The unit is easily programmed by a supervisory controlled four position keyed selector switch located on the front panel of the receiver pylon.The "Auto-Blank" method of blanking is much safer than DIP switch or master/slave blanking systems because only the area of the obstruction will be blanked. This feature prohibits unsafe oversizing of the blanked area commonly found throughout industry on manually blanked systems. "Auto- Blank" also
eliminates the need to count beams and to locate where and what beams are to be shut off to obtain the correct beam elevation to accept an obstruction. "Auto-Blank" will also watch the obstruction and, if it moves or is removed, will go into a "machine stop mode" to prevent further machine operation. This is an additional safety feature not available on manually blanked units. These features truly enhance production while providing the ultimate in safety.  

Auto Blanking

When the key switch is turned to the "Auto-Blank" function, the "Quickview Diagnostic Display" will show the number of blocked beams for two seconds, then verify that the obstruction is being monitored. This is required information for the depth penetration factor and for proper installation of any safety light curtain.

The versatile "Auto-Blank" (AB) Blanking Series includes: 

• Constant scan light curtain 

• One Beam Floating Blank built-in plus "Auto-Blank" capability 

• Two "Auto-Blank" Modes - up to 8 beams blanked but need not be sequential 

A. One "Auto-Blank" mode with keyed reset when guarded zone is penetrated 

B. One “Auto-Blank” mode with automatic reset when guarded zone is penetrated
