The fail-safe sensors switch into the safe state as soon as the target is detected inside the safe switch-off distance. The safety-related function is inverted when compared to the previous fail-safe sensors. This function is ideal in applications such as the protection of crane installations or industrial robots because the targets only need to be mounted at the end positions.
Both the number of metallic targets and the installation complexity are considerably reduced. Thanks to the robust design the sensor is perfectly suited for use in mobile machines. Applications on mobile machines such as monitoring whether
supports are fully extended or waste bins gripped in the right way. Neither strong vibration nor extreme temperatures and cleaning processes affect the function of the fail-safe sensor in any way.
