Safety Devices with RFID Technology and Actuator up to 7500 N
Press release date: July 10, 2014
These switches are used on machines where the hazardous conditions remain for a while, even after the machines have been switched off.
NG series switches create circuits with maximum safety level PLe and SIL3, even though a single device is installed on the protection. Additionally, they can be connected in series up to a maximum number of 32 devices, while maintaining the highest safety level PLe and SIL 3 required by standards.
NG series has an electronic system for the detection of the actuator based on RFID technology. Thanks to this system, each actuator has a different code, and this prevents any possibility to tamper with the device using another actuator of the same series. The actuators can have millions of different code combinations. The sturdy interlocking system guarantees the actuator a maximum F(zh) holding force equal to 7500 N. This is one of the highest values available on the market today, making this device suitable for severe heavy-duty applications.
