The RSS series safety switches applies radio frequency identification technology (RFID) and provides additional security with up to 4 billion unique codes. The RSS safety switches can achieve type 4 high level coding according to EN 14119 safety standard.
These safety switches are available in 5 sizes, the RDNK, RSSO, RSSK, RSSR and RSSG and are rated to IP69K for use in wet or dusty environments. Ideal for replacing standard magnetic safety switches where additional security / reliability and indication at the switch is required.

The DIN rail mounting safety control unit can monitor up to 30 Mechan Safety Switches and/or Emergency Stop Buttons in one system. The electronic non-contact safety switches are fully encapsulated, easy to install and tolerant to misalignment.
Together the switches and control module provide a safety system capable of meeting the requirements CAT 4 SIL 3 PL-e that can be used in the harshest environments, providing long term reliability.

The HE-Series is a coded magnetic safety system. Fully encapsulated solid state safety switches with a slim-line control unit. Combining the ease of use and maintenance of a simple magnetic safety switch, with the improved security, performance levels and indication of Mechan’s electronic switching. Available in ABS or 316 Stainless Steel, the HE switches withstand vibration, wash down and are ideal for use in the food processing / filling and packing industries as well as many other non-locking machine guard applications.

CODEX™ is a modular, frequency operated safety system, designed for use in machine guarding applications where locking is not required. The fully electronic safety switches can be supplied with either the ‘generic coding’ (i.e. each switch the same) or with ‘unique coding’ where there is up to 500,000 individual codes.
The unique code option is especially useful in areas where it is important to ensure no-one defeats the system by use of spare actuators, or as electronic keys for access to controlled areas.

Mechan safety control units have been monitoring 1000's of Mechan electronic safety switches of over 40 years. Proving to be safe, reliable and easy to install, the MPX range, first introduced in the 1980's, and still in operation in many parts of the world.
The MPX control units are available in chassis mount or 35mm DIN rail mount format for installation into existing controls and work with the F-Series safety switches (F-Type, B-Type, S-Type, C-Type and Dinky)
