Safety sensor
The BNS40S noncontact safety sensor is designed specifically for hygienic and washdown applications. The coded magnet sensor is IP69K rated for use in high-temperature (176°F) and high-pressure (1,450 psi) washdown applications. Made from stainless steel, it resists corrosion and cleaning liquids and meets Ecolab test requirements for washdown with acid and alkaline-based cleaning agents.

Concealed mounting offers a continuous smooth surface without visible screws and, combined with features like rounded edges and fine-polished stainless-steel surface, makes cleaning the switch easier and limits areas where bacteria can grow.

Additional features include a LED for visual status indication; three contacts for safety circuit flexibility; 1, 3, 5, and 10-m prewired cable lengths; and choice of two coded magnet actuators.
