IDEM Non-Contact Coded Magnetic Safety SwitchesIDEM Non-Contact Coded 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.
IDEM Non-Contact Magnetic Safety SwitchesIDEM Non-Contact Magnetic Safety Switches

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.
IDEM Non-Contact Magnetic Locking RFID SwitchesIDEM Non-Contact 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.
  • Heavy duty or medium duty holding force models available
  • Master coded or uniquely coded actuation
  • RFID provides a high degree of anti-tamper, virtually impossible to override
  • Flexible actuator for a high degree of misalignment tolerance
  • Able to connect to most popular safety relays to achieve up to PLe and Cat.4 for ISO3849-1
  • Ability to connect up to 20 switches and E-stops in series
  • IP69K rating for food processing applications (stainless steel)
IDEM Solenoid Locking Tongue Interlock Safety SwitchesIDEM 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.
  • Safety Solenoid Locking Switches - all units are power to unlock
  • Several material housings and sizes are available
  • Units are available with solenoid voltages in 24VDC, 110VAC or 230VAC
  • Auxiliary contacts and LEDs for diagnostic feedback
  • Units have a manual solenoid override for emergency access
  • Accessories are available to mount switches to sliding/hinged doors
Tongue Interlock Safety SwitchesTongue Interlock Safety Switches

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.
  • Four mounting sizes: 16.5 mm, 22mm, 30mm, 40mm
  • Housing (body and head) materials: plastic, aluminum and stainless steel options
  • IEC IP67 environmental rating (IEC IP69K washdown on the full body stainless model)
  • Adjustable heads: 90 and 180 options
  • Multiple actuator entry points
  • Selection of nine stainless steel actuator keys, flexible key options available
  • Agency Approvals: cULus, CE, RoHS
Hinge Interlock Safety SwitchesHinge 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.
  • Shaft or lever hinge interlock operated
  • Body and head materials: fiberglass-reinforced plastic, die-cast aluminum options
  • IEC IP65 and IP67 environmental ratings
  • 90 degree adjustable head
  • Agency Approvals: cULus, CE, RoHS
Cable-Pull Safety SwitchesCable-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.
  • Five max protection length classes: 15m, 25m, 50m, 80m, 100m
  • Housing materials: fiberglass-reinforced plastic, die-cast aluminum and stainless steel options
  • IEC IP67 environmental rating (IEC IP69K washdown with stainless body)
  • Rope Pull kits sold separately and recommended for increased reliability
  • Agency Approvals: cULus, CE, RoHS
