Leuze Electronic’s MLD300 and MLD500 multiple-light-beam safety devices offer integrated lasers for the fast commissioning of perimeter guarding.

Lasers at the top and the bottom of the column enable fast setup of perimeter guarding.

The two-, three and four-beam transmitter and receiver systems within the MLD 300 and MLD 500 ranges can cover a range of 70m.

The MLD 300/MLD500 devices utilise the latest generation of brighter laser diodes to provide better integrated laser alignment.

The range offers an alignment laser in the top and bottom of the column.

Another improvement was to reduce the distance between the alignment laser and the infrared safety sensor to only 36mm, compared with 56mm previously.

To reduce the problem of a brightly lit factory making it difficult to see where the alignment laser lands, a highly visible reflective foil strip is applied to the ideal landing area on the receiver column.

The MLD receiver and transmitter sets can cover 70m, with the first reflector column being up to 20m from the transmitter.

The performance improvements in the integrated alignment make the commissioning of perimeter guarding even quicker.

The MLD range offers Type 2, SIL 2, performance-level D protection from the MLD300 range, or Type 4, SIL3, PLe from MLD500 devices.

Within both ranges, there are three different levels of functionality.

The MLD 320 and MLD 520 models offer start/restart interlock, contactor monitoring and configurable operating modes, with the range offering integrated control of parallel or sequential muting.

Commissioning or swapping out of the units is fast because all configuration of the MLD devices is defined by the wiring connections used and there is no requirement to use a PC or set DIP switches for configuration.

Installation is also made easier and quicker by a choice of mounting systems.

A patented system provides full flexibility of mounting height within device columns, rather than being constrained by the position of pre-drilled mounting holes.

The other mounting system is a new bayonet style of swivel mount.

Zinc die-castings enable quick alignment and provide reliable mounting.
