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 synchronised photobeam

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.

DLX asynchronous beams

DLR 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.

DLR share the housing with SEL range of access controls, so they fit into some barrier cabinets, and on the DOC and DELTA posts.

DXR 180° beams

DXR photobeams are available in four versions. All three have rotating circuit boards inside allowing the DXR to be mounted on any surface, or onto DIR posts.

  • The standard wired version has a 20m range and takes 12-24V ac/dc. The transmitter signal is generated in the receiver.
  • There is an armoured version DXR in an aluminium housing, with the same specification as the standard.
  • The thrid version has a battery operated transmitter. The receiver is wired to and powered from the control panel.
  • The fourth version is totally wireless. See the RIO wireless photobeams below.

RIO wireless beams

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.
