The MC36C Series Compact Safety Magnetic Sensors are for safety-related applications, such as the monitoring of swinging, sliding or removable safety guards, which keep personnel safe from dangerous areas. The MC36C Series of magnetically-coded REED safety magnetic sensors monitor the position of sliding, hinged and removable safety guards, especially in dirty and dusty environments. Because of their wide actuation range, the MC36C magnetic sensors handle applications where great tolerances are required, such as with safety gates or doors that are imprecisely aligned.
The MC36C Series are versatile and can work as standalone or in conjunction with a safety module to reach a safety category 4, according to the EN ISO 13849-1 Standard.
These are some of the features which make these sensors flexible to meet various application requirements:
Compact size (36 x 26 x 13 mm)
Output configuration (2 NO or 1 NO and 1 NC),
Availability with 2m cable or M8 quick disconnect (left or right exit).
Other important features include:
Assured switching range: 5 mm w/MC36CM
Assured switch-off range: 15 mm w/MC36CM
Operating temp.: -25 to +80°C (-13 to 176°F)
Rated operating voltage: 12-24 Vac/Vdc
