With the increasing speed and complexity of applications a simple magnetic switch may be insufficient to meet the increased risks, therefore Siphas design incorporates several magnetically sensitive elements which must be triggered in a particular sequence to operate correctly. The Sipha sensor, designed to operate with its own actuator, helps prevent defeatability by a simple magnet.
The control unit is available in three types. The Sipha 1 control unit operates on 24V AC/DC and offers one normally open safety output and one normally closed solid-state auxiliary output. The Sipha 2 control unit operates on either 24V AC/DC, 110V AC or 230V AC and offers two normally open safety outputs and one normally closed auxiliary output. The Sipha 6 has wiring terminals for up to six sensors, a delayed output for Category 1 stops and offers the same wide range of power supply capability as the Sipha 2 control unit. Between two and six Sipha sensors can be directly connected to the Sipha 6 control unit. An internal DIP switch mutes the unused connections to sensors 1, 2, 3 and 4. This allows for individual monitoring to each interlock and provides enhanced safety integrity when compared to six interlocks running off a single Sipha 2 control unit.
The Sipha control units are designed to operate with the Sipha sensors and actuators. The controllers have automatic reset.
