Eaton’s RS safety interlock switches have been specifically designed for monitoring of protective guards, such as doors, flaps and hoods. All switches in this family are safety-rated and use magnetically coded actuators to minimize defeat by simple magnets. With correct installation, the RS family complies with EN ISO 13849-1 and IEC 62061 guidelines.
The RS safety interlock family is comprised of three series: RS2, RS2R and RS4. The assembly comprises a sensor component and a separate magnet actuator component. The sensor is typically mounted to a stationary portion of a structure and the magnet to a movable portion. When the sensor and the actuator are within operating range, the NC contacts will be closed and the NO contacts will be open.
