The mechanical safety switches PSENmech are suitable for safe monitoring of a movable guard. If guards are opened, the safety switches PSENmech are tripped. The hazardous machine movement is then brought to a standstill with the help of the Pilz evaluation device.

Using increased extraction force on the actuator, the safety switches PSENmech prevent the safety gate from being opened unintentionally. They comply with the standard EN 1088 (protection against defeat) due to their mechanically coded actuators.
