Product Announcement from Euchner-U.S.A., Inc.
The new CET3-AR from EUCHNER is a non-contact safety switch with an on-board evaluation module and a door monitoring contact to ensure doors are safely closed.
Whether it's a single door or a series of doors, the CET3-AR Category 4/PL e keeps danger out of your workplace by communicating the open-close status of the door/s. Unlike universally coded magnetic switches, the CET3-AR switch in uniquely coded and cannot be bypassed. This makes the CET3-AR ideal for areas requiring a high level of tamper resistance.
Plus, the CET3-AR is a self-contained safety solution featuring an inductive read head, a monitored guard locking function, and integrated evaluation electronics. In addition to the safety guard signal, the CET3-AR's door monitoring contact conveys to the control system a "door closed" status. This provides an added layer of safety in situations where visual inspection of a door is not sufficient for safety standards. The door monitoring signal is especially valuable when multiple doors must be monitored. In the event a door is not completely closed, the CET3-AR immediately conveys what door is open.
