In the "Safe Switching and Monitoring" section, you will find an extraordinary large programme of safety-related switchgears for the position monitoring of guard doors and the non-contact protection of hazardous zones and danger points, as well as safety switching appliances for special applications.
In theSafe signal processingsection, you can find safety relay modules and safety controllers for various safety technology applications (e.g. for emergency stop and guard door monitoring) as well as centralised programmable safety controllers and decentralised field bus systems, e.g. a modular concept for safety function control on small machines.
System solutions from Schmersal for functional safety can be individually adapted, offer easy and fail-safe installation and minimise the effort needed for wiring.
The Safety Fieldbox in 3 variants PROFINET with PROFIsafe, EtherNet/IP with CIP Safety and EtherCAT with FSoE, enables a high degree of flexibility as a simple plug&play solution: all common types of safety switchgear can be connected.
Schmersal offers a wide range of safety switches with integrated AS-Interface Safety at Work interface, which can be easily networked with each other via this safety bus system. The AS-i system is very flexible, because the configuration can be easily changed even on existing machines.
The SD bus (SD = serial diagnostics) offers cost-efficient safety solutions. The SD interface allows mixed systems of sensors and interlocks. The diagnostics data from series-connected safety switchgear are transmitted to a higher-level field bus system. The SD interface system helps to implement predictive maintenance concepts.
In the Automation technology section, you will find switching appliances for mechanical position detection in various fields of application as well as (safety) sensors with different operating principles; this section also includes a comprehensive programme of command and signalling devices.
In theEx switchgearsection, you will find switchgear which can be used - in accordance with the harmonised standards - in areas with potentially explosive atmospheres due to the presence of gas and dust, e.g. position switches, safety switches and safety sensors with non-contact operating principle..
Many of the devices for Ex zones are suitable for use in safety-related applications in accordance with ISO 13489-1.
In the Lift switchgear section, you will find lift switchgear for various applications in the shaft pit, the lift car and the machine room: floor and fine-adjustment switches, positive-break door contacts, position switches, magnetic reed switches, remote alarm systems as well as the USP ultrasonic elevator positioning system.
