CES-A-C5 / W5 Safety Switch


EUCHNER CES Category 4, Non-Contact Safety Switches are used to monitor the position of movable machine guarding by means of Inductive Coding. These systems are designed for use in areas where a high level of tamper resistance and safety is required. These systems feature an inductive read head, evaluation unit / safety module, and a digitally coded actuator. Unlike universally coded magnetic switches, the CES actuators are uniquely coded and cannot be bypassed by any means. The CES-A-C5E/H is an evaluation unit and read head in one.



  • Combination read head and evaluation unit
  • Small design
  • Status LED's
  • Switch on distance 20 mm
  • Adjustable actuating head with 5 approach directions
  • Safety category 3 (5E unit) or safety category 4 (5H unit)
  • Non-pulsed outputs for use with safety PLCs


  • Achieves the highest level of safety
  • Highest protection against tampering
    • Short circuit detection by pulsed signals
    • The safety system will still function even if an internal component fails
  • Non-contact system
