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.

EXAIR's Cold Gun Aircoolant System

EXAIR's Cold Gun Aircoolant System

Heat build up on dry machining operations reduces tool life and machining rates. The Cold Gun Aircoolant System solves that problem and produces a stream of clean, cold air at 50°F (28°C) below supply air temperature. Operation is quiet and there are no moving parts to wear out. It will remove heat to prolong tool life and increase productivity on machining operations when liquid coolants cannot be used. The Cold Gun is also an alternative to expensive mist systems. It eliminates the costs associated with the purchase and disposal of cutting fluids and worker related health problems from breathing airborne coolants or slipping on wet floors. EXAIR's Cold Gun is non-adjustable to prevent freeze-up during use. The EXAIR Cold Gun gives instant cold air when filtered compressed air is supplied to it. Cycling on and off is a good way to save air. EXAIR is offering a special right now on Cold Guns. Learn more at www.exair.com/184/cgpromo.htm
