Safety magnetic sensors
– Rectangular or cylindrical housings
– Cable or M8 pig tail output connection
– Multiple flux coded magnets
– For applications up to Safety Category 4
The SMS series encoded safety magnetic sensors are used to monitor the position of hinged, sliding or removable guards of industrial applications. Carlo Gavazzi safety sensors stop or disconnect the dangerous motions, if the mobile protections are opened or displaced. They are suitable for safety gates applications up to safety category 4. SMS safety magnetic sensors are the right answer in harsh industrial environments with damp and dusty condition up to applications where demanding hygienic standards are required.
The magnetic safety sensors are used to monitor moving guards such as guard doors, hoods or covers. The contactless, and therefore, wear-free sensors meet requirements for long service life, compact size, as well as hygiene, and give the user more flexibility when creating a machine concept.
Safety sensors in stainless steel or plastic especially for monitoring guard doors of food processing machinery, which, due to their thermal stability and resistance to cleaning agents, are ideally suited for use in hygienic and wet areas.
Carlo Gavazzi offers a comprehensive range of magnetic sensors for use in proximity detection applications. As their name suggests, they used in conjunction with an external magnet – when the sensor approaches the magnet, the output from the sensor will change state.
Typically magnetic sensors will have a longer sensing distance than typical proximity sensors. As well, the output will be a mechanical contact.
There are a wide variety of styles available including rectangular, cylindrical, and slotted. As well, special coded magnets and sensors are available for use in safety applications.
Magnetic sensors are frequently used on elevators and lifts, gate control, level detection, and access control.
non-contact safety sensor for interlocked doors and safe position sensing. The safety sensor is used to assure that a machine stops when a door or hatch is opened. It can also monitor that a robot is standing still in a monitored position when someone enters the robots working area.
A non-contact safety sensor consists of two complementary parts that can sense each others presence without mechanical contact. This enables more flexible mounting compared to traditional mechanical switches. Sense is constantly communicating between the two parts and any failure will directly lead to a stop signal. Sense works together with all of our control modules.
