Product Details

Schmersal RSS16 Non Contact Safety Switch

The RFID safety sensor RSS16 is based on the design of the AZ16. The versatile construction is now available as a non-contact system with wear-free RFID technology for the most demanding requirements of safety level and protection against manipulation. It has universal three-sided actuation which allows the RSS16 to be mounted in different situations. The non-contact operating principle allows a high tolerance for misaligned doors and in addition to the purely mechanical solution enables an actuation direction to the side of the sensor surface.
The robust construction of the RSS16, in the version with the magnetic latching that has an integrated damping element, allows it to be used as a door hinge with latching forces up to 60 N.
Installation benefits also offer the connectivity options built-in plug or terminal connection area with four connection openings, combined here for the first time with the Schmersal RFID technology. This allows the cable routing to be accurately assembled in a series circuit and adapted to the individual machine geometry.
