EUCHNER GmbH + Co. KG in Leinfelden, near Stuttgart, is an international family business with more than 800 employees worldwide. 18 subsidiaries cover the world along with 22 sales offices. The company is managed by Stefan Euchner. Safeguarding people, machines and processes is the main focus of EUCHNER’s activities today. Wherever people and machine meet, our safety components help to minimizing hazards and risks for workers for more than 60 years. EUCHNER safety switches and safety systems monitor safety doors and flaps on machines and installations, help to minimize dangers and risks, and thereby reliably protect people and processes. EUCHNER also has a broad range of products for the man-machine interface and switchgear for automation. Besides the safety switches, EUCHNER offers its customer a wide range of position switches, joysticks, handheld pendant station and electronical access management systems. The variety of products is essential to provide the right solution for specific tasks.
Safety Switches with metal-housing or plastic housing, Non-Contact Safety Switches with transponder- and magnet-coding, Safety Switches with integrated bus-interface, Bolts for safety guards, Enabling switches, Safety Relays, Light grids and light curtains
Joysticks, Electronic Handwheels, Pendant Stations, Electronic-Key-System
Position Switches, metal encapsulated Multiple Limit Switches, Trip rails / Trip dogs, Connectors, Inductive Ident Systems
This system is already established in many applications involving electronic access Management on PCs and control systems. The user employs the Electronic-Key with RFID transponder to identify himself to the Electronic-Key adapter. Thanks to the special design of the Electronic-Key adapters, the Electronic-Key can be placed on the installation during operation.
The CES-C07 supplements the familiar and frequently used option of connecting sensors in series by adding much more comprehensive diagnostics. Even better: the devices provide process-relevant parameters in real time, thereby guaranteeing information for preventive maintenance. The sensors measure relevant parameters in the surroundings to indicate problems before machine failure can occur. This system can even detect tampering attempts.
The guard locking CET safety switches use transponder technology to protect guards and doors. Due to the design of switch and actuator, there is a high mechanical clearance which enables easy mounting and adjustment. Highlights at a glance:
- High protection against tampering (unicode actuators)
- Category 4 / PL e acc. to EN ISO 13849-1
- Locking force up to 6500 N
- Connection via plug connectors
- Integrated evaluation electronics and short circuit monitoring diagnostics using LED
Measuring only 18 mm in width, the slimline safety module ESM-CB is multifunctional: it is an evaluation unit, safety relay and IO-Link device in one. Everything you need to secure a small machine.
A special advantage is the option of transmitting all relevant sensor and device data via IO-Link.
You can connect two safety circuits to the inputs: one with which the device can monitor an emergency-stop chain or the switching contacts of mechanical safety switches. Another one is used for evaluating a switch chain comprising the new safety switches CES-C07. Two redundant, safe relay contacts enable the direct switching of loads up to 6 A mps.
The safety module is in a constant dialog with the connected devices, polling each sensor for information including the system state, the ambient conditions, and the sensor’s data such as the sensor type and version number.
This allows you to communicate at Industry 4.0 Level.
