miniTwin 

World’s Smallest Safety Light Curtain 

miniTwin 
   Web Part Container
The miniTwin safety light curtain is named for its miniature size and twin stick principle. With a cross section of 15mm x 32mm, it is by far the smallest safety light curtain on the market. Combined with the broad range of lengths available, the miniTwin can be more closely matched to the size of the area needing protection. Its award-winning twin stick design combines the sender and receiver into one stick, simplifying ordering and reducing inventory costs. With end-to-end coverage, dead zones are no longer an issue in cascade applications. Two or three sets of miniTwin sticks can be cascaded together and wedged right next to each other without loss of resolution. This allows the light curtains to be mounted closer to the machine, thereby increasing productivity.
