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.

  • Highest level of safety and plant availability
  • Highest manipulation protection highest level of manipulation protection
  • Versatile to use and flexible installation
  • Insensitive to shock and vibration
  • Space-saving installation due to the compact housing
  • Clear LED display for rapid diagnostics

Selecting a panel meter for a particular application can be a daunting task, given the wide variety of products that are available today. There are many factors to consider when making a decision. Let’s look at a few of the major items.

Function

Panel meters can be categorized by type, size, style or other criteria. One way to begin the selection process is to look at the meter’s function – what measurement is this meter making? Some common functions are ammeter, voltmeter, frequency meter, power meter, energy meter, counter, timer, temperature meter, process meter, and controller.
