Proximity switches are essential devices used in various industries and applications to detect the presence or absence of an object in close proximity without physical contact. These sensors rely on different technologies, including inductive, capacitive and ultrasonic, to detect changes in the electromagnetic field or capacitance around the sensor's active area. Proximity switches offer a non-invasive and reliable method for object detection, and they are commonly employed in automation and control systems. The ability to work in harsh environments and provide real-time feedback makes proximity switches invaluable for improving operational efficiency, safety, and reliability in a wide range of industries and systems.
IS/IEC 60947 (Part-5): Sec 2 is an important standard for manufacturers of proximity switches. These standards set forth the requirements for the design, construction, and testing of proximity switches. These standards include safety requirements that help safeguard users and maintenance personnel from potential hazards. Manufacturers who adhere to these standards can produce dependable and durable proximity switches. Complying with these standards is a legal requirement for manufacturers who want to sell their products in India.
Note: Manufacturers of proximity switches are required to obtain the mandatory BIS/CRS Registration to launch their products in the Indian market.
BIS/CRS Registration for proximity switches ensures that these devices adhere to stringent quality and safety standards defined by the Bureau of Indian Standards. The compulsory registration is imperative to verify the reliability, accuracy, and safety of proximity switches in diverse applications, thereby safeguarding consumer interests and contributing to the quality and integrity of industrial automation and control systems in India.
Bureau of Indian Standards is a statutory body in India responsible for the formulation and implementation of standards to ensure the quality and safety of various products. Under the BIS framework, there exists a scheme called CRS (Compulsory Registration Scheme), which mandates that certain categories of products must undergo mandatory registration and comply with specified quality and safety standards before they can be sold in the Indian market. This scheme was established in 2012 and has since played a crucial role in enhancing product quality and safety in India by ensuring that items such as electronics, appliances and automotive components meet the necessary standards before they reach consumers. BIS/CRS Registration is vital for market access, as it is a legal requirement for selling the product in India. Failure to obtain this registration can result in confiscation of goods and legal consequences. Therefore, manufacturers and importers need to be diligent in ensuring their products meet the necessary criteria.
