Safety photobeams are the primary non contact safety device. The switch contacts presented to the control panel are NC. All versions are compatible with 'phototest'.

A ring of photobeams is a legitimate method of protecting the gate risk zone.

DIR sync'ed safety photobeams

CAME's synchronous beams are a cost effective option.

In synchronised photobeams, the transmitter signal is generated in the receiver. In asynchronous photobeams the transmitter self generates. Though more complex to wire, the synchronised types can be placed relatively close together without interfering with each other. The transmitter has a fuse in it to protect against mistaken connection.

There are three versions, covering 10m, 20m, and 30m openings.

DLX async safety photobeams

DLX is the new look asynchronous photobeams. They have the same profile and function as the DELTA photbeams that they replace, and the DOC photobeams before them. 

Available in surface mounting, or flush mounting for fitting in the DELTA-BN posts, and the older DOC-LN posts. DLX share the housing with SEL range of access controls, so they also fit into some barrier cabinets.

DXR 180° photobeams

DXR photobeams are available in three versions. The circuit board can rotated, so the beam can be set over a 180 degree range.  DXR can be mounted on any surface, or onto DIR posts.

  • DXR10CAP standard wired version has a 20m range and takes 12-24V ac/dc. The transmitter signal is generated in the receiver.
  • DXR10CAM is an armoured version DXR in an aluminium housing, with the same specification as the standard.
  • DXR20BAP has a battery operated transmitter. The receiver is wired to and powered from the control panel.

RIO wireless photobeam system

RIO wireless safety photobeams site layout RIO wireless safety photobeams site layout

RIO is a range of wireless safety devices. The photbeam transmitter  (4)  and the photobeam receiver  (4)  are battery operated. The receiver also has a wireless link to a receiver in the control panel  (2)  which responds when the photobeam is blocked.

  • The standalone receiver RIO-CT8WS has four outputs. Out1 and Out2 are for safety edge senders, and normally connected to Came control panel inputs C7 or C8. Out3 and Out4 are for wireless photobeams, and normally connected to Came control panel inputs C1, or C2, or C3.
  • Each RIO-ED8WS edge sender can take 2 edges. They can be 8k2 or N/C contacts. Each input can be programmed to Out1 or Out2, or both inputs to the same output.
  • Each RIO-PH8WS wireless photobeam pair has a transmitter and a receiver. Only the receiver side talks to the standalone receiver RIO-CT8WS. Each photobeam set takes one channel, and can be programmed to Out3 or Out4.
  • The standalone receiver can accept up to 7 devices total spread across all 4 outputs. For example, 4 edges could be connected via two RIO-ED8WS edge senders. That leaves 3 more channels that could be 3 sets of photobeams. No more.
