Actuator coding level in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14119

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
This FAQ describe which coding level according ISO 14119 can be reached by the Safety positions switches with Solenoid interlocking; the Safety positions switches with separate actuator and the non-contact safety switches.

QUESTION:

What actuator coding level in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14119 do the 3SE2, 3SE3, 3SE5 mechanical position switches and safety switches and the 3SE6 non-contact safety switches achieve?

 

 

ANSWER:

The 3SE2, 3SE3, 3SE5 mechanical position switches and safety switches and the 3SE6 magnetically operated switches achieve an actuator coding of max. level 2.

Attached is a   confirmation (578,7 KB) that the 3SE53, 3SF13, 3SE5...-..V, 3SF1...-..V safety position switches with separate actuator can be used as Type 2 interlocking devices in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14119:2014-03
. The actuator coding is low level coded.

Note: For guard locking devices (tumblers) that are released by “power OFF” (solenoid locks), a separate risk analysis concerning the level of safety has to be compiled for each application
.

If a low level coding is not sufficient, one possible measure would be to use a coded actuator with a high level coding, for instance, individually coded 3SE63 RFID switches.

Attached is a   confirmation (518,4 KB) that the 3SE63 devices are in accordance with DIN EN 60947-5-3:2005 and can be used as Type 4 interlocking devices in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14119:2014-03.


The actuator coding is as follows:
Family coded 3SE6315-.BB01 -> low level coded actuator
Individually coded 3SE6315-.BB02 /.BB03 -> high level coded actuator
