The Series BNS30 and BNS300 coded-magnet sensors are designed for use as a safety interlock switch on movable machine guards/articulating robot arms. Each sensor set consists of a multiple reed switch unit and a coded-magnet actuator. The reed switches, wired in series, will only close in the presence of their matched magnetic field array. In addition, the Series features an integral monitoring and control circuit which detects faults in the reed switch array (satisfying EN954, Category 1 without use of an ancillary safety relay module). Both switch and magnet assemblies are sealed to IP67 (submersible) standards. Their tamper-resistant design prevents bypassing with a simple magnet or improperly coded magnetic field. In addition, the BNS module features an integral LED display of switch status and a 1-meter long prewired pigtail.
