January's sensor of the month

Jan 23, 2012

Proximity switch PSENini

The proximity switch PSENini monitors safely without actuators.

Our "Sensor of the month" series introduces a product highlight from our portfolio every month. That way it will be even easier for you to select the right sensor for your application from our product ranges. In January we are presenting the safe proximity switch PSENini with an integrated option for series connection and an 8-pin connector.

Detecting the approach of metallic objects

PSENini safely monitors the approach of metallic objects such as those on cams, rolling doors or even rotational movements. The typical operating distance (steel) is 15mm. With a non-contact, wear-free function and IP67 protection, PSENini guarantees a long service life, even in rugged industrial environments.

Integrated series connection

With the safe proximity switch PSENini, series connection is already integrated within the sensor, as on the coded safety switch PSENcode and safety gate systems PSENslock, PSENsgate. This means that the sensors can be connected to the passive junction PDP F4 code via M12 connection technology and then evaluated. With PSENini you gain an economical solution for your application, with maximum safety: up to PL e of EN/ISO 13849-1, SIL CL 3 of EN/IEC 62061, both individually and in series.

Additional benefits of the mechanical safety switch PSENini:

  • Investment protection: Can be combined directly with a wide range of evaluation devices through the safe semiconductor outputs
  • User-friendly: Rapid diagnostics via LED
  • Long product service life due to wear-free function
