ADJUSTABLE MOUNTING BRACKET KIT - TYPE AB
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. INTRODUCTION
2.5. Once in alignment the clamp plate securing screw
may then be fully tightened.
Each adjustable mounting bracket kit comprises:
2.6. Any rotational / lateral adjustment may be achieved
via the M6 jacking screws, adjacent to the securing
screws on the mounting bracket body.

Owing to the tight acceptance angles specified by current
standards, it is important that the emitter and receiver units
are mounted so that they are as optically aligned as possible.

This mounting bracket kit is for securing a light curtain
to a wall, mounting surface or floor post in the vertical
axis and has angular adjustment if required.

MOUNTING SURFACE
OR
2.1. Mark the positions where the guard is to be located
ensuring that the mounting surfaces are flat and even.
Mounting Surface
2.2. The greater the care taken in positioning and securing
the guard, the easier it will be to align the system.
2.3. Secure the brackets to the wall / mounting surface,
ensuring that they are vertically aligned. Locate the
columns in the mounting brackets and tighten clamp
plates.
2.4. Any vertical adjustment required may be obtained
by slackening the clamp plates and raising / lowering one
column until the beams are optically aligned.

Care must be taken to ensure that the amount of
adjustment for both top and bottom mounting
brackets is equal, to prevent the column from
twisting and therefore distorting the optical beam
alignment.
2.7. Once the two columns are optically aligned, tighten
the mounting bracket body securing screws.
3. INSTALLATION TO A FLOOR POST
3.1. Mark the position on the front face of the floor post
where the light curtain is to be located. Ensure that the
mounting brackets are positioned at the same height on
both emitter and receiver floor posts. It is important that
the brackets are positioned centrally on the floor post.
3.2. Secure mounting brackets to the floor post in one of
two ways:
a) Drill clearance holes (M5) right through the floor post
and secure brackets in place with M5 x 100mm long
bolts, nuts and washers.
b) Drill holes 4.2mm diameter through the front face only
of the floor post and tap M5. Secure brackets in place
with M5 x 20mm cap allen screws. See figure 4.
3.4. Place floor posts in required position ensuring that
the emitter and receiver columns are both level
horizontally and vertically and then visually align.
3.5. Any rotational / lateral adjustment may be achieved
via the M6 jacking screws, adjacent to the securing
screws on the mounting bracket body.
See figure 2 and 4.
Care must be taken to ensure that the amount of
adjustment for both top and bottom mounting
brackets is equal, to prevent the column from
twisting and therefore distorting the optical beam
alignment.
3.6. Secure the floor posts in this position via the central
front mounting hole (A) see figure 6. Once both floor
posts have been secured, check guards are still in
alignment. If so secure via the two rear adjustable
mounting slots (B) see figure 6. If any adjustment is
required to bring the guard back into alignment this may
be achieved by either:
a) Rotating the floor post via slots (B) see figure 6.
b) Adjusting the jacking screws (C) for tilt see figure 6.
