Eden is a non-contact safety sensor for use on interlocked gates, hatches etc.
Eden consists of two complementary parts, called Adam and Eva. A coded signal is transmitted from the control device Vital or from the safety PLC Pluto via Adam to Eva which modifies the signal and sends it back again. Eden, is constantly communicating via a dynamic signal between the two parts and any failure will directly lead to a stop signal.
The sensing distance between Adam and Eva is currently 15 mm ± 2 mm. Up to 30 Edens can be connected in series to Vital and still achieve the same safety level in the safety circuit.
Adam is available with cable lengths up to 10 m and with M12 connectors. The LED on Adam provides indication of three different conditions, contact/non-contact between Adam and Eva and safety status. The same information is also available via the Adam connection cable.
Eden E is available for harsh environments with protection class IP69K. There are also coded versions, Eden C, Eden EC, Adam EC and Eva EC.
Eden AS-i is adapted for direct attachment to the AS-i bus. It has an integrated AS-i node and is connected via an M12 connection directly to the AS-i cable. Eden AS-i has a protective encapsulation that enables Eden to be used in harsh environments. Each Eden is individually coded which makes it secure against manipulation.
