Schmersal RSS260 Compact RFID Safety Sensor

Schmersal has applied Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology in the new RSS260 series electronic safety sensor. The RSS260 is designed for application in safety circuits monitoring the position of hinged, sliding or removable guards using a specifically coded, passive RFID tag in the actuator.Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is a technology that uses radio waves to provide a wireless data exchange of a coded identification number between a target (tag, label, or chip) and a reader – a device which transmits an encoded radio signal to the target. Schmersal has applied this technology to the RSS260 series non-contact safety sensor. In this application …
