Approvals

CE Approved

•  Standalone non-contact operation
•  IP69K fully sealed
•  ABS, Resin filled
•  4,000,000,000 Unique Codes
•  (EN 14119 Type 4 high code)
•  LED guard indication
•  Volt Free Contacts
•  Large range of sizes / fittings

The RSS series safety switches applies radio frequency identification technology (RFID) in a variety of housings. Unlike other RFID switches on the market that use OSSD, we have made the RSS range standalone by adding volt free contacts. This means you are free to use most safety relays on the market, and not those specified to work with OSSD only.

The non-contact operation makes the RSS easy to install and tolerant to misalignment. They are individually coded for high security applications providing a simple reliable solution to machine guard interlocking.

The RSS series provides additional security with up to 4 billion unique codes achieving type 4 high level coding according to EN 14119 safety standard.

These safety switches are available in 5 sizes, the RDNK, RSSO, RSSK, RSSR and RSSG and are rated to IP67 & IP69K for use in wet or dusty environments.

The RSSR and RSSG safety switches are designed to work with most safety relays on the market. Whereas, the RDNK, RSSO and RSSK are designed to be connected to a safety control circuit which has less than 0.5 Amps inrush current.

The Mechan RSS-Series are RFID operated safety switches. Using Mechan’s uniquely coded RFID switching system, the RSS-Series safety switches provide a more secure non-contact safety switch.

The RSS-Series has ‘teach’ enabled and allows for a new actuator to be resynced to one of 4,000,000,000 possible codes.

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.

With precise switching and indication on the switch, reliable operation is assured along with easy operator identification of guard status.

The RSS-Series safety switches can approach each other from most directions. When closed the targets printed on the front face of the switches must be aligned. (Large target to large target and small target to small target). When the power is on and the switch and actuator are apart the Normally Open contact(s) will be open and the Normally Closed contact will be closed. When the actuator is brought within the specified switching distance the Normally Open contact(s) will close and the Normally Closed contact will open.

The RSS-Series safety switches are available in 5 sizes, the RDNK, RSSC, RSSK, RSSR and RSSG.
