All-in-one safety bolt and switches reduces engineering timePilz is launching a PSENbolt that combines a handle, mechanical bolt and two safety switches. This all-in-one product eliminates the need for costly in-house engineering and assembly time to combine individual components. According to Pilz, the new PSENbolt product provides safe interlocking of safety gates to Performance Level PL e (EN ISO 13849-1) or Safety Integrity Level SIL CL 3 (EN 62061 / IEC 62061) - or guard locking to PL d - when specified with the Pilz PSENcode RFID coded safety switch and Pilz PSENmech mechanical safety switch. Particular attention has been paid to the mechanical design of the PSENbolt unit to ensure that it is sufficiently robust to withstand long-term use in industrial environments.

PSENbolt devices can be used with doors that are hinged on the left or right. Various options enable the PSENbolt to be used in a choice of application scenarios:

SeriesEscape release?Locking pin?Can be combined with:
1NoNoPSENmech mechanical safety switches with guard locking OR PSENcode non-contact, coded safety switches
2YesYes, can be deactivatedPSENmech mechanical safety switches with guard locking OR PSENcode non-contact, coded safety switches
2.1YesYes, cannot be deactivatedPSENmech mechanical safety switches with guard locking OR PSENcode non-contact, coded safety switches
3NoNoPSENmag non-contact, magnetic safety switches OR PSENcode non-contact, coded safety switches
4YesYes, can be deactivatedPSENmag non-contact, magnetic safety switches OR PSENcode non-contact, coded safety switches
4.1YesYes, cannot be deactivatedPSENmag non-contact, magnetic safety switches OR PSENcode non-contact, coded safety switches
5NoNoCombination of PSEN me1 with PSEN cs3/4 or PSEN ma1.4 OR PSEN cs3n/4n with clamping device for plug-in connector

Hinged guards that are protected using a PSENbolt device can be monitored by means of an appropriate safety relay, configurable safety controller or safety PLC.
