Original Press Release:
Coded Safety Switch For Safety Gate Monitoring Stops Manipulation
(CANTON, MI) -- PSENcode from Pilz Automation Safety is a non-contact, coded safety switch that meets the highest requirements for safety gate monitoring. Coding on the safety switch and its counterpart guarantees excellent protection against manipulation and meets Category 4 of EN 954-1. It is quick and easy to install, with no need to wire a second switch. Five directions of actuation and a long (17 mm) switching distance ensure maximum flexibility of installation.
Definite assignment of a switch and its counterpart makes it impossible to manipulate the safety gate being monitored. A unique, fully coded version of the switch also is available for more demanding safety requirements.
More than ten Pilz safety switches can be connected in a series, making them suitable for more complex plant or machinery. This solution not only meets Category 4, it also reduces the amount of wiring involved.
The new PSENcode switches expand the existing Pilz range of non-contact magnetic safety switches. The following Pilz products also are appropriate for use as evaluation devices: safe PNOZ relays, PSS programmable safety systems and the safe, open bus system SafetyBUS p. Pilz provides safe, economical, and state-of-the-art safety gate monitoring. With IP67, all Pilz safety switches can be used in the pharmaceutical and food industry as well as metal processing plants and machinery.
