New to the product range: safety light grids and light curtains LCA from EUCHNER
EUCHNER is expanding its industrial safety engineering product range by non-contact safety guards. The light grids and light curtains from series LCA are used for access control and for securing danger areas. They are available as multi-beam light grids (two to four beams) or as light curtains with various resolutions from 14 to 50 mm. Light grids are ideally suited for access control, while light curtains are used in particular for protecting fingers, hands, arms and body detection.
Transponder-coded safety switch CES-C04 for ATEX applications
The transponder-coded EUCHNER safety switches from series CES-C04-AP/AR can now be used in potentially explosive atmospheres in zone 2 (gases) and zone 22 (dusts). This is made possible by a specially developed plastic housing guard. The CES-C04 is simply placed into this guard. It effectively protects the safety switch against the effects of possible impacts and thereby meets the requirement in the ATEX directive.
More than simply safeguarding – the new MGB2 Modular
A revised design, new and expanded functions as well as a modular layout – the new MGB2 Modular is more than a simple safeguard device. Thanks to the modular design, the MGB2 Modular can be flexibly adapted to the specific application requirements of the safeguarded door. Designed to accept two configurable sub-modules, up to six control operators can be integrated into the base locking module. Sub-module replacement is possible at any time, as the MGB2 is hotpluggable. In tight spaces, the compact bus module (MBM) with integrated Profinet/Profisafe can be conveniently mounted remotely. Using MBM, connection of several MGB2 Modular systems is also possible, creating a very flexible solution.
Integrated controls – the new CTP-Extended
With the new CTP-Extended, it is possible to integrate up to three control and indicator elements into the switch cover. These make it possible to initiate control signals, for example emergency stop, request to enter, and reset functionality, directly at the switch. In combination with a bolt system, the CTP-Extended represents a complete solution for safeguarded doors, including door handle and end stop.
No chance of getting locked-in – the new CTP-BI
The new CTP-BI has a Bi-stable locking function. When the operating voltage is switched off, the guard locking is maintained in its current position. This means that the safeguarded door remains either locked or unlocked, regardless of locking principle, until power is reapplied. The Bi-stable guardlocking solenoid therefore provides an additional measure of prevention of an individual becoming accidentally locked inside a guardlocked door, whether for service, maintenance, or cleaning.
For usage in potentially explosive atmospheres – the new CTP-EX
The transponder-coded safety switch CTP with guard locking has been expanded with a variant for usage in potentially explosive atmospheres. In the version CTP-EX, the safety switch can be used in zone 2 (gas environment) and zone 22 (dust environment).
