Solenoid Key Switch Key Features




Control Interlocking with the Solenoid Key Switch



The solenoid key switch is ideal for use in harsh environments for enforcing a run-down time before a key sequence can be performed. Standard switches come in a range of switch currents; 20A, 32A & 63A and with switch contacts (with key inserted) of 2 NO/2NC or 4NC (NO – Normally Open; NC – Normally Closed).




Example Part Number: SS1-1-0-CLIN-V-A02022*





* 20A – A020.. ; 32A – A032.. ; 63A – A063.. ; 2NO/2NC – A..22 ; 4NC – A..40




When operating in harsh environments, we recommend lock protection for switches to prevent ingress of dust and dirt. In the images below, on the right the lock protection can be padlocked for lockout/tagout procedures.

Solenoid Key Switch with Isolation or Gate Access


The image above shows how a solenoid controlled key switch can be used to access a gate interlock. When the key is removed from the solenoid controlled key switch, the machine cannot restart.









Designing the Right Solenoid Switch for your Environment




Solenoid Key Switches can be supplied for mounting within an existing enclosure, or pre-mounted in an enclosure. Both options are offered with up to ingress protection IP66.
