April 2, 2019 – A new family of safety sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs includes four cylindrical and rectangular series with cable and plug connection. The sensors areTÜV-certified in accordance with the Machinery Directive (EN 13849) Performance Level PLd, Category 2, and SIL 2. They are used to safeguard machines and plant components as well as for reliable position detection within this environment.
These safety proximity sensors do not require a special coded target and can therefore be used with standard metal actuators. The sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs have no blind zone and can therefore be mounted easily and without any additional adjustment.
The sensors are equipped with standardized OSSD outputs (Output Signal Switching Device) for signals and diagnostics that can be connected to a safety module or a corresponding control panel.
The inductive safety sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs have characteristic safety values due to the electronics used.
