In this article and video, will introduce the Eden, non-contact safety switch with standard OSSD outputs.
The Eden solution uses a RF coded actuator which works in conjunction with an RF actuated switch.
Since the operation of the Eden non-contact safety switch is based on RF technology it overcomes many of the shortcomings and potential safety issues associated with non-contact magnetic and mechanically interlocked safety switches.
The Eden actuator and switch have a detection distance of up to +/- 15mm.
The RF coded actuator is available in both a general coded version and a uniquely coded version. The uniquely coded version actuator provides a higher level of tamper resistance.
The Eden switch is available in a 5 pin version for single switch connections.It is also available in an 8 pin version which allows up to 30 switches to be series connected to any safety monitoring relay which accepts OSSD inputs and still maintains a Ple / Safety category 4 designation.Both the 5 and 8 pin models are available in a “reset” version which allows the local, monitored reset of a switch that has been tripped due to a gate or guard which has been opened.
A non-safety status LED is provided on the Eden switch module to indicate the current status of the switch.
A variety of cables and connectors are available to assist with the connection of the Eden switch for either single switch or series connected applications.
