Our Safety Interlock Switches are a means of safeguarding that monitors the position of a guard or gate. You can use them to shut off power, control personnel access and prevent a machine from starting when the guard is open.
Our Guard Locking Switches protect hazardous areas where a danger is not immediately removed after a stop request. On many machines, removing power to the motor or actuator will not immediately stop the dangerous motion. Typical applications are high inertia rotating machines, fast rotating machines, and machines where high pressure needs to be released from pneumatic valves.
Our Non-contact Interlock Switches help you protect personnel and equipment. At the same time, flexibility and productivity are points that you must also consider as you design your safety system. For non-contact interlocks, no physical contact (under normal conditions) takes place between the switch and actuator.
Our Tongue Interlock Switches allow the head of the switch to rotate, offering different options on how you can operate the switch and mount it on the guard. This flexibility offers the best fit for your applications.
Our Trapped Key Interlock Switches can be configured to ensure that a predetermined sequence of events takes place or that hazards have been reduced before operators become exposed to them.
