Extended AS-i enabled safety sensor range
16 August 2016
The Schmersal Group has expanding its AS-i range – the RSS260 safety sensor and the AZM300 solenoid interlock are now both fitted with a built-in AS-i Safety at Work interface.
The AS-i fieldbus standard allows both non-safe and safe switches, sensors and interlocks to be wired safely and cost-effectively. It offers many benefits for users of safety switchgear, including quick installation and commissioning, comprehensive diagnostics functions and high levels of flexibility when it comes to adapting safety functions to the application.
Schmersal’s RSS260 RFID safety sensor is suitable for use in a wide range of applications because of its compact design and different targets. It is also said to be suitable for fitting in aluminium profiles and for use in a wide range of other door formats, including the often-used Plexiglas doors and panels. It has a protection rating of IP65/67.
The flexible AZM300-AS RFID solenoid interlock is fitted with a cross-shaped interlock system which allows universal approach from three sides. The solenoid interlock has a built-in catch function with two engaging force levels of 25 N and 50 N, a high IP69 K degree of protection and a design which makes it suited to use in hygiene-sensitive applications such as food and packaging machines.
