The non-contact safety gate systems PSENslock are a safe alternative to existing mechanical technology. With an electromagnetic holding force of up to 1000 N, PSENslock units prevent swing gates and sliding gates from being opened unintentionally. The actuator is manipulation-proof, providing added safety.

The non-contact safety gate systems PSENslock combine safety gate monitoring with a non-contact magnetic interlock. This combination of safe position monitoring and process guard locking means that PSENslock are suitable for universal use. Movable guards such as swing gates and sliding gates in particular can enjoy optimum protection.

Safety gate systems PSENslock are type PDF-M proximity switches with transponder technology (RFID) and as such offer the highest level of protection against manipulation. They are BG-tested for applications up to PL e of EN ISO 13849-1, SIL 3 of EN/IEC 62061 and Category 4 of EN 954-1.

PSENslock are non-wearing and can be connected in series with non-contact, coded safety switches PSENcode and other safety gate systems PSENslock.

Pilz safety gate systems combine safety, standard and diagnostic functions in one unit. With IP67 protection, they are also suitable for rugged environments. With an open design, they can be connected to Pilz control technology as well as any other standard evaluation devices. As a result, Pilz Australia components can also be retrofitted to plant and machinery.
