Schmersal announces RSS260 safety sensor

October 7, 2014- Schmersal announces RSS260 RFID-based electronic safety sensor, for application in safety circuits of hinged, sliding or removable safety guards.

For mounting flexibility, the series is available with three different actuator types: a standard actuator (RST-260-1), a very flat, elongated actuator (RST-16-1), and an extremely compact rectangular target (RST-U-1). The RSS260 sensor will accept any of these target actuators from two approach directions.

The RSS260 features an LED status indicator, optional serial diagnostics, and optional individual coding of actuators. Because of an integrated dual monitoring microprocessor, only one switch is required to meet PLe per ISO 13849-1 and SIL3 per IEC 62061. The RSS260 can be connected in series with other electronic safety sensors and locking switches, up to 31 devices, without loss of signal or safety level.
