Schmersal RSS260 safety sensors with RFID technology

Monday, 26 May, 2014 | Supplied by: Control Logic Pty Ltd


The RSS260 safety sensor combines the detection principle of RFID technology and a high switching distance in a compact design.

The various actuators allow optimal integration of the safety sensors in the surrounding architecture of removable, hinged and sliding covers and doors. All variants offer a high level of tamper resistance as the RFID-based sensor technology permits individual actuator coding.

In the basic version, the sensor accepts any suitable RSS260 family target. A second version for increased tamper resistance only responds to an individually assigned target - the teaching process can be repeated any number of times. Finally, there is a third version available for the highest level of tamper resistance which only accepts the target presented at initial power-up.

In addition to the standard actuator which is suitable for assembly on the normal aluminium profile systems, additional actuator designs can be selected. There is a compact rectangular target and a flat, elongated actuator which is suitable for design-oriented machines and plants as well as for being mounted on polycarbonate safety gates.

Another feature includes the ability to connect up to 31 RSS260 safety sensors in series and evaluate them with a single safety module without compromising the safety level and the diagnostic capability. This also applies when combining the RSS260 with other Schmersal electronic safety switching devices such as the solenoid interlocking AZM300 and light curtains such as the SLC440.
