A Look at the Safety Switch CTP Series from Euchner

Posted by Bob Breitenbach in Safety Products

EUCHNER's new safety switch CTP combines the proven principle of operation of electromechanical safety switches with guard locking with modern transponder coded safety engineering. Thanks to the transponder technology, even a single CTP achieves category 4 / PL e according to EN ISO 13849-1 without additional fault exclusion and meets all the requirements of EN ISO 14119. It is ideally suited to applications in which a high Performance Level and a locking force of up to 2500 N are required.

Versatile in use
The CTP reliably protects safety doors and fl aps on machines and mechanical equipment. Thanks to the integrated guard locking and guard lock monitoring it can be used for the protection of both processes and persons. The very compact design permits space-saving mounting on the safety guard. With a locking force of 2500 N the CTP eff ectively prevents the opening of safeguards. The very robust plastic housing with metal head as well as the high degree of protection IP 69K make the CTP the all-rounder for almost every industrial usage. The CTP is suitable even for harsh, dirty environments.

Mounting and principle of operation
The CTP comprises two components, a safety switch and an actuator. During mounting the safety switch is attached to the fi xed part of the safety guard, the actuator to the moving part. The CTP can be approached from four directions. For the better insertion of the actuator the head is equipped with an integrated funnel. This feature is particularly advantageous on unstable door structures as well as the door is misaligned. On closing the safety guard the actuator enters the head on the safety switch. When the transponder chip integrated into the actuator is detected and the guard locking activated, the safety outputs are switched on. Thanks to the integrated failsafe locking mechanism unintentional activation of the safety outputs is prevented if the actuator is not completely inserted in the head.
