Pantron

The environment in car wash applications: wet floors, reflecting walls, water spray. With over 30 years of know-how, special opto sensors Pantron are optimized for these conditions. These sensors are as sensitive to detect a convex windscreen, and as strong to detect the wheels at simultaneous undercar wash.

The ICL-2000 is a dual-channel opto sensor which is specially tailored to operate in car washes. This device replaces two single-channel opto sensors with the advantage of no mutual interaction between each single channel. Four level settings are used for different installation situations in a car wash. The automatic operating mode provides a secure functionality that adjusts to external interferences, deterioration and misalignment of the sensors. The device has semiconductor outputs.

The device settings can be changed with the related software only. It is possible to program eight different basic settings which can be selected via DIP switch. An integrated test button is used for determining sensor alignment and also reporting wire breakage. The alarm output displays if the sensors are too polluted.

The Master/Slave operation provides the possibility to synchronize two of the following amplifiers: ICL-2000, ICL-6000 and ICL-8000. That means that a system of two combined amplifiers works with 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 or even 16 totally independent channels. Using the test input via an external connection, an automatic function test can be activated. The analog output may also be used for the alignment of the sensors.

One LED scale shows the switching status for each channel while another shows that the signal strength is sufficient. An alarm LED and alarm output acts as a contamination indicator and sensor breakdown signal. All connections use quick-connect plugs.

An amplifier that is specially tailored to operate in car washes (washing gantries and car wash plants). The special programming of this device enables perfect operation in the difficult environmental conditions that exist in the car wash industry. In particular, there are problems with wet and specular walls and floors, reflective vehicle roofs or sudden spray. On one hand, the device is sensitive enough to detect curved windshields and on the other, it is powerful enough for wheel detection during simultaneous high pressure under body and side washing.

At the push of a button, the device shows information about sensor alignment and wiring, such as wire breakage and short-circuits. The fourfold frequency change-over is useful to decouple nearby light barriers. Four level settings allow an adjustment to different operating conditions. The alarm output indicates that the sensors are too contaminated. This compact single-channel amplifier must be mounted on a 11-pin DIN rail socket. A relay output for high switching loads is included.

An amplifier that is special tailored to operate in car washes (washing gantries). It differs from other light barriers of the ISG series in 4-fold frequency switching for better decoupling of the detection ranges if the mounting is very close. Furthermore it differs in an increase of firm capacity during high setting. The light/dark switching is realised via a bond bridge in DIN-socket.
