New inductive safety sensor portfolio from Pepperl+Fuchs

05 April 2019

The new family of safety sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs includes four cylindrical and rectangular series with cable and plug connection.

The sensors are TÜV-certified in accordance with the Machinery Directive (EN 13849) Performance Level PLd, Category 2, and SIL 2. They are used to safeguard machines and plant components as well as for reliable position detection within this environment. Inductive sensors with an increased temperature range, as well as increased EMC resistance and E1 approval for the use of mobile machinery and vehicles in safety-critical areas, round off this new portfolio. 

These safety proximity sensors do not require a special coded target and can therefore be used with standard metal actuators. The sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs have no blind zone and can therefore be mounted easily and without any additional adjustment.

The sensors are equipped with standardised OSSD outputs (Output Signal Switching Device) for signals and diagnostics that can be connected to a safety module or a corresponding control panel.

The inductive safety sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs have very high characteristic safety values due to the electronics used. As a result, the regular functional inspections are required significantly less often, and integration into the safety loop is notably more straightforward.
