The Rockwell Automation electromagnetic safety switch was designed to improve machine safety and help protect a work process from unplanned downtime.
The production process downtime can cause different problems such as defective products and high scrapping costs. For this reason, a reduction in machine downtime can be useful for improving productivity and reducing scrap.
Allow access to potentially hazardous areas when the work area is truly safe! The 440G-EZ electromagnetic safety switch is a cost-effective interlock solution that combines a Power to Lock (PTL) magnetic locking function featuring a 500N holding force and with ±5 mm misalignment tolerance.
The 440G-EZ electromagnetic safety switch can be connected in series with other Cat 4, SIL 3 or PLe rated safety devices. The magnetic locking feature further aids in door stability and reduces misalignment and nuisance tripping.
To simplify installation, troubleshooting and maintenance, the switch offers on-board LED diagnostics indicating switch status as well as when the state of the output signal-switching devices (OSSD’s) are locked or unlocked..
Power up switch, no actuator present
|Not in sensing range||Steady red indicator||OFF||OFF|
|Within sensing range||Steady green indicator||ON||ON|
Apply lock command
|Within sensing range||Steady green and yellow indicator||ON||ON|
Forcibly slide the actuator off the sensor, when locked
|Not in sensing range||Steady red and yellow indicator||OFF||OFF|
LED YELLOW = lock supplied with voltage
LED GREEN = OSSDs ON – RFID present
LED RED = OSSDs OFF – RFID not present
Design to meet global standards, the 440G-EZ safety electromagnetic switch is mainly used in applications where safety is a priority.
