Pilz PSENcodeThe PSENcode from Pilz are used to monitor the position of guards in accordance with EN 60947-5-3 and also for position monitoring. Thanks to the integrated evaluation and the standard interfaces, PSENcode is open to products from other manufacturers. So the coded safety switch fits perfectly into most environments and can be used to upgrade plants.

Thanks to RFID transponder technology, the coded safety switches PSENcode from Pilz combine maximum manipulation protection with the smallest space requirement. A new feature is a further solution for space-critical applications, where the installation height is a key factor: the PSENcode low profile actuator is just 3 mm high and is currently the world's most low profile actuator.

The PSENcode low profile actuator supplements the compact or slimline design of the safety switches PSENcode and can be used in combination with them. Due to its extremely low height it is eminently suitable for applications in which space is critical. The actuator has a stick or screw on design and can therefore be used on plexiglas. A safe switching distance of 6 mm, irrespective of the base, is a further benefit. Thanks to its versatile installation, users benefit from a high degree of freedom in the machine design.

The coded safety switches provide safe monitoring up to PL e of EN ISO 13489-1 or SIL CL 3 of EN/IEC 6206. In this case PSENcode safely monitors up to three positions, which can be safely differentiated by the sensor. Integrated evaluation and a reduction in the number of safe inputs on the evaluation device make the coded safety switch PSENcode an economical solution.

Condition monitoring of critical components on machines delivers enormous benefits to productivity in a plant.  Rather than have a motor, pump, or compressor unexpectedly fail and the machine be inoperable until a replacement part is installed, condition monitoring of those critical pieces on the machine can provide warning signs that something is about to go terribly wrong. Vibration measurements on rotating equipment can detect when there is imbalance or degrade on rolling bearing elements.

Those of you in the food industry are already familiar with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)—a law that focuses on preventing contamination, rather than reacting to the problem after the fact. A big part of FSMA compliance has to do with the design of plant equipment, which includes the electrical components that provide power to manufacturing lines.

Fortunately, MENNEKES offers a variety of electrical products that make FSMA compliance easier than ever. Let’s explore this topic in our new blog post.
