New Safety Locking Device PSENmlock Mini

The new safety locking device PSENmlock mini for personnel protection expands Pilz’s portfolio of safety switches with guard locking. With its compact design of just 30x30x159 mm, PSENmlock mini is ideal for space-critical applications, such as flaps or covers for example. This small safety locking device has a holding force FZH of 1950 N (F1max: 3900 N), providing safe guard locking for personnel protection applications up to PL d, Category 3 (EN ISO 13849-1).

  • Fast and flexible attachment
    • It can be installed inside or outside the safeguard – to suit your application. Also, the actuator offers a high level of flexibility, as it can be attached from the right, left and front. So swing gates and sliding gates can also be easily safeguarded. 
  • High level of safety
    • The dual-channel operation of the solenoid and the bistable guard locking principle provide a guarantee in the event of a power failure: The last state is maintained and the gate is closed. You also benefit from reduced energy consumption. The self-monitoring OSSD outputs enable faults in the wiring to be detected and immediately switch the machine to a safe state in the event of a fault.
  • High degree of manipulation protection
    • The coding is freely selectable – coded, fully coded or uniquely coded. An auxiliary release is integrated on two sides. What’s more, PSENmlock mini can also be connected in series up to PL d, Cat. 3, minimising wiring and simplifying commissioning.
