New products: Line XMS – the integrated machine concept

The new profiles in Line XMS save on installation space without compromising on performance. Profiles X 8 XMS are only 40 mm wide but offer all the usual benefits of the line, such as the option of using Door Lip Seals to keep dust and noise inside the enclosure.

Cover Profile X 8 Al closes over the groove in Lines X and XMS to create a flush, closed surface that is easy to keep clean. It is ideal for use in cleanroom applications and for producing a closed surface on Linear Unit KLE.

Safety Switch 8 – a step forward in safety. An encoded RFID chip uses contactless technology and sits entirely in the profile groove.

Safety Switch 8, 24V DC

A new dimension in safety. Safety Switch 8, 24V DC uses contactless switching and therefore offers a long and reliable service life free from mechanical wear. This is made possible by an encoded electronic system that uses RFID technology. Each actuator features a coded chip and is completely concealed in the Line 8 groove. The switch registers whether the chip is within the sensor range with outstanding precision. In contrast to mechanical systems, the encoded chip is extremely tamper-proof.

The system ensures repeat accuracy for switching points and an exceptional safety standard. Two short-circuit-proof safety outputs forward signals to the switchbox. The safety lines feature integrated monitoring for cross circuits, wire breakages and interference-voltage. Up to 31 switches can be connected in series to combine various measurement points. A three-colour LED on each switch enables users to check its operating status at a glance. Thanks to IP67 protection, Safety Switch 8 can be used in most environments.
