Control Logic presents the new Schmersal RSS260 safety sensor designed to combine RFID technology and a high switching distance in a compact and tamperproof design.
The various actuators allow optimal integration of the safety sensors in the surrounding architecture of removable, hinged and sliding covers and doors. All variants offer a high level of tamper resistance as the RFID-based sensor technology permits individual actuator coding.
The safety sensor in its basic version accepts any suitable RSS260 family target. A second version for increased tamper resistance only responds to an individually assigned target; however, the teaching process can be repeated any number of times. The third version offers the highest level of tamper resistance and only accepts the target presented at initial power up.
The standard actuator is suitable for assembly on the normal aluminium profile systems. Additional actuator designs include an extremely compact rectangular target and a very flat, elongated actuator perfect for design-oriented machines and plants as well as for mounting on polycarbonate safety gates.
Up to 31 RSS260 safety sensors can be connected in series for evaluation with a single safety module without compromising the safety level or the diagnostic capability. The RSS260 can also be combined with other Schmersal electronic safety switching devices such as the solenoid interlocking device AZM300 as well as the SLC440 light curtains.
