PILZ has released a non-contact coded safety switch, PSENcode. It satisfies category 4 of AS4024.1. A fully coded version of the switch is also available for particularly demanding safety applications.
More than ten safety switches can be connected in series, making PSENcode suitable for complex plants. It is quick and easy to install, as there is no need to wire a second switch. Five directions of actuation and a switching distance of 17mm ensure maximum flexibility during installation.
The safety switches are IP67-rated and can be used in the pharmaceutical and food industry as well as on metal processing plants and machinery.
