Schmersal extends pulse-echo range

Following the launch of the CSS 180 non-contact, electronic safety sensor, Schmersal has announced that it is extending the range with the introduction of the CSS 34, a new non-contact safety sensor for monitoring the position of safety guards. The CSS 180 uses pulse-echo technology to communicate between the sensor and actuator, which allows for greater offset of the coded actuator – both in the switching distance and lateral offset. This means for example, that door misalignment is more easily tolerated and detected without interrupting the process. Using the same technology the new CSS 34 is able to detect this offset earlier and send an alarm signal, allowing users to adjust the safety guard before signals can no longer be transmitted and the machine stops – leading to higher machine productivity. And the user always gets the necessary information thanks to the integrated LEDs that indicate the sensors operating status. Thanks to its rectangular design and with ease of integration in mind, the compact safety sensor can, for example, be fitted to standard 40 mm profiles of safety guards and machine housings using just two screws, and slotted holes allow for an accurate alignment of the sensor with the actuator. Furthermore, the variable actuating direction and four possible actuating planes makes the CSS 34 particularly flexible in use.
