Tapeswitch Intros Safety Controller
Compact safety interface controller.
Farmingdale, NY — Tapeswitch Corporation has launched a new compact safety interface controller, the PSSR-2. Its technology offers integrity monitoring of any presence sensing safety switch, mat, edge, and bumper product with a 6.8kΩ or 8.2kΩ end-of-the-line resistor. The PSSR-2 has a safety performance of CAT 3 SIL2 PLd, EN 13849. It has built in integrity monitoring for presence sensing safety mats, edges, and switches with a resistor. It has a manual and auto reset. There are 3 output contacts; force guided relays and 2 normally open (safety) 1 x normally closed (monitor) contacts. It is 22.5mm DIN rail mountable. It is an excellent safety solution for any industry, including the metalworking industry. Also being introduced is the new HE Series multi-gate non-contact interlock switch system for machine safety with gates and enclosure guarding around metalworking machinery.

Tapeswitch Corporation has released a complete line of HE Series non-contact safety interlock switches and multigate SCU-1 control unit monitoring systems for machine guarding, where monitoring for a guard is required and locking is not required. This can apply to several types of machinery including but not limited to packaging, paper, food and beverage, dairy, pharmaceutical, canning, mail, steel, motor, weighing, semiconductor, plastic, aluminum machinery and metalworking industries.

The new line incorporates the HE Series Interlock switches which are the latest coded magnetic non-contact switches. They feature fully encapsulated solid state, single point switching with built in, dual color, LED status indication. The switches offer a CAT 4, SIL 3 PLe safety performance level. It has 2 NO and 1 NC bi-directional solid-state outputs. The solid state outputs offer simple series connection. They offer a 7mm switching distance and can approach on each other from most angles. The HE Series is IP67 rated. When combined with the SCU-1 control unit, it is a multi-gate switch solution capable of monitoring up to 30 switches in the series. Since the HE series is an HED double switch, it reduces the amount of wiring for multiple gates and reduces the brackets needed for mounting the switches.
