PI Safe : Inductive Safety Sensor for Position Detection

Norstat now offers the PI-Safe a complete range of sensors for non-contact, safe detection of metal objects.

PI-Safe sensors can generally be installed in applications that require a non-contact sensor for the safe detection of metal objects. Applications include reliable positioning on rotary indexing tables and machine tools, safe triggering of slow travel as well as switching off at an end position for presses, gantry robots or actuators. Faults such as coil breaks or coil short circuits are self-diagnosed switching the sensor into a defined safe state. Their non-contact, wear-free operation also guarantees a longer life span as well as low maintenance costs.

The PI-Safe is available in a variety of models, shapes, sizes, and mounting options. Construction is stainless steel for the body and PBT for the heads. Output is 2x OSSD, display is via LED’s for operational status and fault detection and Connection is via a M12 4 pole connector. These robust sensors are protection class III, carry a protection rating of IP 65 & IP 67 and can operate in temperatures from -25°C to +70°C.
