Euchner smart safety for the packaging industry

08 April 2024

Whether for packaging, filling or palletising foods, safety engineering is crucial when it comes to protecting people, machinery and processes from hazards and malfunctions throughout the packaging process. Euchner combines innovative safety engineering with today’s communication requirements to automate networked machines and installations.

Euchner’s safety systems are just as suitable for Ethernet-based protocols such as Ethernet/IP, PROFINET or EtherCAT as they are in the ASi or IO-Link environment. Integration is simple and considerably reduces the amount of wiring and diagnostic work. Euchner’s Industry 4.0 ready developments are: the new CKS2 safe key system and the highly compact CTM guard locking device with hygienic variant for small doors.

CKS2 – lockout and starting with a single system

The new CKS2 safe key system can be used for machine and installation lockout and starting, for assigning authorisation to select an operating mode, or as a trapped key system. When combined with highly coded RFID keys, the CKS2 key adapter forms a safe system providing maximum protection against tampering. Integrating the evaluation electronics forms a compact system that can be paired with Euchner IO-Link Gateways to enable comprehensive diagnostic and communication features for users, such as the option of reading the key that was used to operate the installation. The CKS2 is also available as a submodule for the MGB2 Modular safety door system, opening up diverse new applications on the safety fence.

Unbeatable compact, smart, and Industry 4.0 ready – the CTM door locking device

Small, bistable guard locking device with the highest possible safety level – plus a hygienic version: boasting impressively small dimensions of just 120 x 36 x 25 mm, the CTM was specially developed for use on small, lightweight doors in the primary packaging sector and the food industry. As one of the smallest guard locking devices on the market, it is particularly easy to integrate into the machine design. It can even secure doors with extremely small pivoting radii. The bistable guard locking function ensures that the door is kept locked even in the event of a power failure. The CTM is therefore ideal for the protection of persons and processes and complies with the maximum safety level PL e.  Additionally, it is future proof thanks to its smart communication via IO-Link and is Industry 4.0 ready by design. Connecting it in series with other Euchner devices is a snap. The integrated interface additionally enables connection to the Euchner Gateway, which forwards the data via IO-Link to the higher-level control system.
