A Safety Sensor That Adapts To You
Request a Proof of Concept for SCHMERSAL's RSS16 Safety Sensor


The RSS16 uses RFID to detect the actuator and indicate a closed guard. This non-contact operating principle limits wear on components and tolerates misalignments.

The RSS16 sensors meet stringent North American and European Standards, are cULus and CE approved, and can be used in the highest level of machine safety circuits, PLe to ISO13849-1 and SIL 3 to IEC61508.

Front actuation - plexiglas door: no disruptive lines from flat actuator
Bottom actuation - with soft-close door catch and 40 N magnetic catch
Side actuation - sliding door, can be approached from all angles


The RSS16 series electronic safety sensor features the following:
  • Three coding variants for manipulation protection as required
  • Three actuation directions
  • Door catch with magnetic catch function
  • IP67 ingress protection rating
  • Integrated LED diagnostics on the sensor
  • Advanced serial diagnostics available for use with various communication protocols
  • Terminal space for plug connection
  • Also suitable for series connection
