Schmersal RSS16: The Next Generation of Safety Sensor Technology

The new RFID safety sensor RSS16 is based on the classic Schmersal AZ16, which is highly regarded as a symbol for a safe and economical solution in the field of personal protection on equipment.

This versatile construction is now available as a non-contact system with wear-free RFID technology for demanding requirements of safety level and protection against manipulation.

The RSS16 advantages at a glance:

  • Encoding level "high" according to ISO 14119 with an individual RFID code
  • Three encoding options for demand-protection against manipulation
  • 3 actuating directions (See images below)
  • Door stop with magnetic latching function
  • Connection terminal or plug connection
  • For applications up to PL e / category 4 to EN ISO 13849-1 and SIL 3 to IEC 61508

The Schmersal RSS16 has a choice of actuation options

High tolerance for misaligned doors

The universal three-sided actuation was adopted from the model AZ 16, this allows the RSS 16 to be quite versatile and can be mounted in different situations. The non-contact operating principle allows a high tolerance for misaligned doors and in addition to the purely mechanical solution enables an actuation direction to the side of the sensor surface.

The robust construction of the RSS16, in the version with the magnetic latching that has an integrated damping element allows it to be used as a door stop with latching forces up to 60N. Installation benefits also offer the connectivity options built-in plug or terminal connection area with four connection openings, combined here for the first time with the Schmersal RFID technology. This allows the cable routing to be accurately assembled in a series circuit and adapted to the individual machine geometry.
