Each series of non-contact switches is now available with 250mm cable and M12 Quick Disconnect.Interlock Safety Switch Selection Guide
Non-Contact RFID Coded Switches
RFID Coded non-contact safety switches use RFID communication between switch and actuator to provide the most tamper-proof protection using both master and unique coded actuators.
LPF Series and SPF Series
Non-Contact Magnetic Safety Switches
Coded non-contact safety switches use coded magnets to close the circuits, thereby offering even more protection. The safety switch and actuator work together in such a way that the enable condition from the safety device is only triggered if the actuating element is within the switch's response range and the code on the actuator matches that of the switch.
These are simple magnetic reed switches and are designed to conform to IEC 60947-5-3 and be used as directed by EN1088, EN ISO12100 and EN 60204-1. Non-contact safety switches are interlocking devices that are designed to protect both people and machines. They are preferred in certain applications where no physical contact (under normal conditions) takes place between the switch and actuator.
Magnetic Locking RFID Switches
The MGL Series of safety switches combines magnetic locking and radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology to provide non-contact operation and high anti-tamper coding. In addition, an electromagnet is used to lock machine guards.
Solenoid Locking, Tongue Interlock Safety Switches
These solenoid locking switches are similar to our current safety interlock switches, but maintain a holding force on the key until the solenoid is energized to release.
Tongue Interlock Safety Switches and Keys
Tongue operated Safety Interlock Switches are designed to 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 are designed to provide robust position interlock detection for moving guards.
Hinge Interlock Safety Switches
Safety switch, hinge interlock operated
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.
Cable-Pull Safety Switches
Safety switch, cable-pull interlock operated
Cable-Pull (Grab-Wire) safety rope switches are designed to be mounted on machines and sections of conveyors which cannot be protected by guards.
Safety Limit Switch Accessories
Safety interlock switches, safety limit switches and accessories are developed and manufactured according to IEC and EN European standards.
