The BID0007 safety sensor is a cost effective option for monitoring guard doors and gates – especially in environments where contamination or dust are expected. The non-contact operating principle means they are insensitive to mechanical play, such as when doors settle or are imprecisely aligned. The proven magnetic technology with intelligent arrangement of the reed contacts in the switch housing offers strong anti-tamper security and reduces the risk of bypassing the safety function (EN ISO 14119). And the safety switch, with separate processing electronics, can be used for applications up to PLe/SIL 3 (ISO EN 13849 and EN IEC 62061). They have a standardized M12, 5-pin connector which saves cost and allows direct, "plug & play" connection to the Balluff safety IO-Link I/O module.
