Eden non contact safety switches, manufactured by Jakob Safety and available from Sensorsafe , feature a maximum sensing distance between points of 10mm.
These safety switches are separated into two contact points - Adam and Eve. Coded signals are transmitted from Vital via Adam to Eve, which modifies the signal and sends it back again.
The LED on Adam provides indication of three different conditions, contact/non contact between Adam and Eve and safety status. The same information is available via the cable from Adam.
Up to 30 Eden non contact safety switches can be connected in series and still maintain safety Category 4 according to EN 954-1.
They can also be connected in series with light beams and emergency stops to achieve the same high safety level in the control circuit.
Cable lengths of up to 10m can be supplied with Eden non contact safety switches, as well as the option of M12 connectors.
