Euchner CTP/CTA Safety Switch: Keeping Workers Safe

5/10/2022

ByLauren Willman

Standard Electric and Euchner are offering the CTP/CTA Safety Switch that combines the proven principle of operation for electromechanical safety switches with guard locking and modern transponder-coded safety engineering.  Due to the integrated guard locking and guard lock monitoring, it can be used both for process protection and the protection of workers. Its reliability secures safety doors and flaps on machines and installations. 

Thanks to the transponder technology, even a single CTP/CTA 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 for applications in harsh environments and industrial complexes such as the Pulp and Paper Industry where a high-performance level and a high-locking force are required.  Another plus is the fact that there are no cavities for dust to accumulate inside the safety switch head.  

Features & Benefits:

  • Integrated insertion funnel
  • Actuator with integrated transponder
  • Auxiliary release
  • Different plug connectors (M12/M23)
  • Industry 4.0 ready
  • Immediate diagnostic function
  • Compact design for space-saving mounting
  • Up to 20 AR devices can be connected in series/in-a-chain
  • IP65/IP67/IP69/IP69K degree of protection
  • Can communicate over IO Link with ESM-CB or GWY-CB

The CTP/CTA Safety Switch communicates via RFID which requires less monitoring and increases productivity. In addition, the information is handled more efficiently with fewer errors as no human intervention is needed to read the data.
