Magnetisch oder RFID-kodierte Sicherheitssensoren bieten kontaktfreien Schutz fĂŒr TĂŒren, Hauben und Klappen

Viele Anlagen und Maschinen benötigen Sicherheitseinrichtungen, um wĂ€hrend des Betriebs einen unbefugten Zutritt oder Zugriff zu verhindern. Ein einfaches Lichtgitter ist in vielen FĂ€llen nicht ausreichend, denn LĂ€rm, Hitze, Staub etc. dĂŒrfen z. B. aus Pressen, Roboter-Zellen oder Spritzgussanlagen nicht entweichen. Umgekehrt mĂŒssen Anlagen in der Lebensmittel- und Pharmaindustrie aus HygienegrĂŒnden vor eindringenden Fremdkörpern geschĂŒtzt sein. Verschiedene TĂŒren, Hauben oder Klappen helfen da weiter. Deren Stellung lĂ€sst sich nun mit einem magnetisch- oder RFID-kodierten, ECOLAB-zertifizierten Sicherheitssensor von Contrinex genau erkennen. Der Sensor arbeitet berĂŒhrungslos, hat also keinen Verschleiß und damit lange Wartungsintervalle. Das magnetisch kodierte System (Typ 4 nach ISO…

New fire penetration seals for cable entry systems

icotek is now offering cable entry systems combined with fire penetration seals for the railway industry. The intumescent (foaming) IFPS fire penetration seals are based on expandable graphite and significantly increase their volume at high temperatures. The result is a barrier that prevents the penetration of flames as well as the heat transfer from one room to another, e.g. to protect passengers and staff in rail vehicles against onboard fire incidents. The IFPS seals are mounted on the back side of the cable entry frame (side facing the potential fire source). The icotek cable entry components with mounted seals IPFS…
