New actuator for a new dimension in safety!

Thanks to RFID transponder technology, the coded safety switches PSENcode from Pilz combine maximum manipulation protection with the smallest space requirement. A new feature is a further solution for space-critical applications, where the installation height is a key factor: the PSENcode low profile actuator is just 3 mm high and is currently the world's most low profile actuator.

The PSENcode low profile actuator supplements the compact or slimline design of the safety switches PSENcode and can be used in combination with them. Due to its extremely low height it is eminently suitable for applications in which space is critical. The actuator has a stick or screw on design and can therefore be used on plexiglas. A safe switching distance of 6 mm, irrespective of the base, is a further benefit. Thanks to its versatile installation, users benefit from a high degree of freedom in the machine design.

The coded safety switches provide safe monitoring up to PL e of EN ISO 13489-1 or SIL CL 3 of EN/IEC 6206. In this case PSENcode safely monitors up to three positions, which can be safely differentiated by the sensor. Integrated evaluation and a reduction in the number of safe inputs on the evaluation device make the coded safety switch PSENcode an economical solution.
