  Balluff launches RFID contactless safety interlock switch

11. June 2018 – Balluff continues to expand its security product line with the release of its contactless RFID security circuit breaker. The safety interlock switch combines non-contact, coded transponder safety technology with a mechanical safety interlock to meet the safety requirements of international standards.

This switch connects directly to Balluff IO-Link safety I / O module or safety controller via a standard eight-pin M12 connector

RFID technology couples the sensor and actuator with a unique code and provides tamper-proof protection and a "high" EN ISO 14119 encoding. This is combined with a rotating shaft and a spill handle, which can be locked in the closed position until the process has expired and stopped. Integrated safety processing electronics and OSSD outputs allow use in applications requiring PLe (EN ISO 13849) and SIL 3 (IEC 61508).

The switch meets the needs of a wide variety of applications. It is used to secure and safely monitor protective doors and safety flaps in order to protect persons from possible dangers or to avoid interruptions to operations. The locking function keeps the guard or gate closed until the process is stopped and access to the machine is safe. A selectable latching force of 25 N or 50 N makes the protective latch insensitive to vibrations even in the unlocked state. Typical applications for the contactless RFID safety switch are doors, gates and protective devices on packaging machines, machine tools, robot cells and plastic injection molding machines. Balluff
