Pilz’s PSENslock non-contact magnetic interlocking gate switches operate magnetically, not mechanically, as do the more traditional systems.
PSENslock has an electro-magnetic holding force of 500 N to prevent the unintentional opening of swing gates and sliding gates. Its proven transponder technology is manipulation proof because the switch and actuator are totally different items. This provides an additional measure of safety.
Existing mechanical technology, on the other hand, requires the use of a keyed actuator. Consequently, it’s possible that this “key” could be damaged, suggesting the door is closed, creating a potentially unsafe condition.
Ideal for use in rugged industrial environments, PSENslock is easy to install. With its combination of safe position monitoring and process guard locking, it‚â€™s suitable for mounting onto standard 45mm profiles around the machine.
PSENslock can be used on flap gates and safety gates and is extremely tolerant to gate misalignment. With bright, double-sided LED diagnostics on both sides; it can be mounted left- or right- handed. An M12 plug connection allows for simple assembly.
PSENslock is designed for applications up to SIL3 in accordance with EN/IEC 62061, Category 4 in accordance with EN 954-1 and protection type IP67. In terms of a complete solution, PSENslock can be connected to all Pilz evaluation devices.
