Safety Switches for Automation – The Standard Range
Safety Switches for Automation
Welcome to our range of Safety Switches for Automation; a range of products for controlling and monitoring guards opening and locking in three different applications – Heavy Duty, Medium Duty and Compact Locations.
What is Heavy Duty?
Heavy Duty Safety Switches are for use where robustness and strength is paramount and for protecting heavy machinery in dusty, dirty environments. Heavy Duty Locking actuators have a head retention force of 10,000N and can be used in systems up to Performance Level e.
What is Medium Duty?
Medium Duty Safety Switches are for use with lightweight machinery. Medium Duty Locking actuators have a head retention force of 2,500N and can be used in systems up to Performance Level d.
What are Compact Switches?
Compact Switches are perfect for space limiting, short radius applications, up to Performance Level e. Compact Locking actuators have a head retention force of 8,000N and are high-coded to minimise system defeat. Select a product from our list below to learn more and for a file download.
What is a Safety Switch?
A safety switch creates a stop command upon a guard opening. The access request is signalled via a positive break to the dual channel safety as the guard is opened.
What is Guard Locking?
Safety switches with guard locking prevent access through a guard until is it safe to enter using solenoid control. The solenoid provides the locking mechanism to enable a run down time to elapse before access is permitted.
