MiniSafe® MS4800 Series Light Curtains

The MS4800 light curtain family is an all-purpose light curtain available in three distinct versions. These versions are identified as the MS4800A, MS4800B and the MS4800S. The MS4800A and MS4800B feature set (configuration) can be changed through the use of an external device called the Programming Diagnostic Module (PDM) and on the MS4800S through selector switches.
