August 6, 2019 – The PSRswitch is Phoenix Contact’s safety switch for smart door safety and position monitoring in machines and assembly lines. When combining the PSRswitch with the PSR-MC42 PSRmini safety relay, machine builders can take advantage of IO-Link diagnostics to adapt their safety system for an IIoT-enabled future.
Capable of connecting up to 30 sensors in a series while achieving SIL 3/PLe, the PSRswitch gives Phoenix Contact its first safety sensor, giving machine operators protection with connectivity. The PSRswitch offers an RFID non-contact safety door switch system with M12 connections. The safety switch can be connected in a series with Y distributors, bridge plugs, and SAC cabling.
The PSRswitch is suitable for small to midsize machines, conveyor systems, or robot manufacturing cells with multiple access doors or maintenance panels that require safe shutdown of stored hazardous energy. With the addition of the PSRswitch series, Phoenix Contact now offers a full safety solution, including SAC cabling, compatible safety relay units, and many other products for automation applications.
