• Prevents manipulation due to object recognition (by measuring the impedance)
  • Opening of the housing during operation in gas hazardous areas is allowed
  • Automatic diagnosis system self-monitors all safety-related functions continuously
  • Due to the cable compensation, it is also possible to connect cables up to 30 m
  • NAMUR-compatible Ex i control output
