Middletown, Pa. - The PSRswitch is Phoenix Contact's new safety switch for smart door safety and position monitoring in machines and assembly lines. When combining the PSRswitch with the PSR-MC42 PSRmini safety relay, machine builders can take advantage of IO-Link diagnostics to easily adapt their safety system for an IIoT-enabled future.

Capable of connecting up to 30 sensors in a series while achieving SIL 3/PLe, the PSRswitch gives Phoenix Contact its first safety sensor, giving machine operators a greater level of protection with simple connectivity. The PSRswitch offers an easy RFID non-contact safety door switch system with M12 connections. The safety switch can be connected in a series with Y distributors, bridge plugs, and SAC cabling, making installation of these devices convenient and flexible.
