Ilion Single Beam Safety Sensor

Type 2 single-beam safety photocells


Ilion is a Type 2 safety photocell with M18 cylindrical metal body

The Ilion photocells must be connected to control unit for example: standard AU SX or AU SXM control unit with Muting or Mosaic to form a protection system that can be composed of 1, 2, 3 or 4 single beam photocells.

In case of connection with Mosaic safety controller, the number of photocells depends to the configuration of the protection system. (For details on the interface see AU SX, AU SXM and Mosaic control units).


Safety level: Type 2, SILCL 1 PL c Cat. 2 (with control unit AUS X or AUS XM or Mosaic)

Protection level: IP65

Number of photocells per control unit: 1 – 4 with AU SX and AU SXM control units
In case of the Mosaic safety controller the number of photocells depends to the number available input related to the system configuration
