Interlock safety switches are devices that use a physical connection (tongue interlock or hinge switch) to monitor machine guards, doors, gates, windows, jaws or other machinery to protect both people and machines. Solenoid locking models are also available.
Interlock safety switches are great choices for monitoring safety gates and doors where there is little chance for misalignment. They provide a positive physical connection (tongue interlock or hinge switch) for machine guards, doors, gates, windows, or jaws and will disable machinery in the event the door or gate is opened or misaligned.
IDEM and Comepi safety switches are high-quality, rugged devices that ensure reliable protection.

These RFID coded safety switches fit into the leading edge of machine guard doors to provide robust guard locking while also providing a double tamper resistant interlock mechanism.
These solenoid locking switches are similar to standard tongue interlock safety switches, but maintain a holding force on the key until the solenoid is energized to release.
Tongue operated safety interlock switches fit to the leading edge of sliding, hinged, or lift off machine guards to provide positively operated switching contacts and provide a tamper resistant actuator mechanism. They provide robust position interlock detection for moving guards.
Hinge interlock safety switches fit to the hinged axis of machine guard doors. The switch body fits to the door frame and the actuator fits to the door.
