A new dimension in safety. Safety Switch 8, 24V DC uses contactless switching and therefore offers a long and reliable service life free from mechanical wear. This is made possible by an encoded electronic system that uses RFID technology. Each actuator features a coded chip and is completely concealed in the Line 8 groove. The switch registers whether the chip is within the sensor range with outstanding precision. In contrast to mechanical systems, the encoded chip is extremely tamper-proof.
The system ensures repeat accuracy for switching points and an exceptional safety standard. Two short-circuit-proof safety outputs forward signals to the switchbox. The safety lines feature integrated monitoring for cross circuits, wire breakages and interference-voltage. Up to 31 switches can be connected in series to combine various measurement points. A three-colour LED on each switch enables users to check its operating status at a glance. Thanks to IP67 protection, Safety Switch 8 can be used in most environments.
When used in the XMS profile system, a self-adhesive section of Door Lip Seal ensures a continuous all-round seal.
