eloProtect – the next generation of machine safety switches

eloProtect is a new range of safety switches from elobau which have been designed with increased performance and greater safety in mind. The new magnetically actuated eloProtectM, and eloProtectE RFID switches, build on elobau's strong history of innovative and reliable safety products. Two different housing styles are available which are based on the 2 most popular industry standard sizes, the 153 and 165 formats. IP69k housing is standard on both switches. The range conforms to all the appropriate safety standards and is UL/CSA approved.

Key Features of the eloProtect range are:

  • IP67 and IP69k9 rating for harsh environments.
  • Higher protection against manipulation.
  • Mounting from both sides (left/right).
  • Bigger offset values.
  • Compact construction of housing.
  • Cable or Pigtail with M12 connector.
  • High reliability and life expectancy.
  • Tamperproof sealing plugs.
  • Sleek modern design.

Additional circuitry has been incorporated in the eloProtectM range to reduce the possibility of manipulation from a non-coded source. Each version allows for a greater misalignment value of between 3 and 5 mm. This results in a reduction of any unwanted influences due to machine vibration. The improved design means LED indication is available with the normally open contact arrangement. There is also an option of an additional control contact.

In the eloProtectE (RFID) range, there are 3 different coding levels to choose from, allowing the tampering protection to be set according to the application. The device has 2 x 400mA current rated outputs and can be used as a standalone device; with no need for a safety relay, making it ideal an idea choice for OEM’s manufacturing small or compact products.
