To reset your deTec4 Prime light curtain to factory settings means bringing the device back to default with no cascading, no coding, no EDM, and no reset button configuration.

This procedure is recommended when:

  • Reset and/or EDM is configured, but isn’t needed in the light curtain for the application
  • A device is being moved from one application to another
  • A previous “reset to factory default procedure” has not been successful
