The PSENmat is a world first: it is a pressure-sensitive safety mat with integrated switch functionality. As such the pressure-sensitive safety mat is suitable for more than area monitoring. PSENmat also has an operating function, which triggers actions that can be freely defined in advance. This is enabled via an integrated virtual switch.
With the pressure-sensitive safety mat PSENmat you have a pressure-sensitive safeguard to protect workers in accordance with EN ISO 13856-1. The safety mat detects when people step on it, reliably records their position and forwards the position data to the safe controller. Should anyone enter the danger zone, PSENmat slows down or stops the machine (access protection). While there is anyone inside the detection zone, the pressure-sensitive safety mat also prevents the machine from restarting unintentionally (protection against encroachment behind the detection zone).
The reaction time in this case is low, ≤ 25 milliseconds.
