The safety sensors are suitable for safeguarding of sliding, hinged or removable protective doors that needs to be closed to secure the required operators safety. They are also applicable on profile systems and for retro fitting on existing equipment.
Our safety sensors achieve Control Category 4 to EN 954-1, as well as PL e to EN ISO 13849-1and SIL CL3 to EN 62061 by means of an appropriate safety relay module series SRM.
Safety sensors are preferably applied as an alternative to mechanically operated limit switches in cases where unfavourable operating conditions, such as high or low actuating speeds, large switching frequencies, extreme dirt or dust production, high humidity, chemical atmospheres, high tolerant switching distances, etc. occur. Even in the presence of aggressive materials, as well as in the food processing industry, safe swichting is ensured through the encapsulation of the contacts. The BZ 16 is even available with protection class IP 69K.
