Original Press Release:
The New Transponder Coded Safety Switch - CTP
The new safety switch CTP combines the proven principle of operation of electromechanical safety switches with guard locking and guard lock monitoring with modern transponder-coded safety engineering. Thanks to the transponder technology, even a single CTP achieves category 4 / PL e according to EN ISO 13849-1, without additional fault exclusion. The CTP also significantly surpasses the requirements in EN ISO 14119 for a type 4 switch with high coding level. Its usage is ideal in applications in which a high Performance Level and a locking force of up to 2500 N are required.
The CTP is equipped with a comprehensive, detailed diagnostic function. An LED indicator is integrated on the front panel so the device status is immediately apparent. This indicator provides all relevant information at a glance. With the CTP it is also possible to connect monitoring outputs and a diagnostics output directly to the PLC.
Depending on the version, the CTP is also suitable for direct connection to safe control systems or for the series connection of up to 20 devices.
The very narrow design of the CTP makes possible straightforward and space-saving mounting on the safety guard. The robust plastic housing with metal head as well as the high degree of protection IP 69K makes the CTP the all-rounder for almost every industrial usage.
