RSS Series : Uniquely Coded RFID Safety Switches

The RSS-SERIES from Mechan Controls is a uniquely coded RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) safety switch with volt free contact outputs. They offer protection against manipulation and tampering making them ideal for use in high risk applications. The RSS-SERIES is also ‘teach’ enabled and allows for a new actuator to be resynced to one of 4 billion possible codes. This unique coding system makes code duplication near impossible, and the volt free contact outputs make the RSS-SERIES compatible with most safety relays on the market today.
The RSS-SERIES are vibration-proof safety switches constructed with an agent resistant, resin encapsulated, orange ABS housing. These switches are available with either open cable in 3, 6 or 10m lengths or M12 pigtail connectors. Stainless Steel versions are also available. Built and sealed to IP67 & IP69K, the RSS-Series is capable of working in wash-down areas making them ideal for use in the food processing / filling and packing industries as well as many other non-locking machine guard applications and can operate in temperatures ranging from -25° C to +60° C.
