Safety Interlock Switches
The new MKey interlock switches and noncontact switches greatly expands the company’s range of tailored, turnkey safety systems for industrial applications. MKey switches provide position interlock detection for moving guards and are designed to fit the leading edge of sliding, hinged or lift-off machine guards. Available in two holding strength versions, 12N and 40N, the switches have several actuator types for differing applications. The new Sense Coded noncontact switches, designed to interlock hinged, sliding and removable guards doors, are especially targeted to operate in environments that require the highest level of safety. These switches are very compact, making them easy to position and hide on gates and hatches. MKey switches are also available with a locking function for moving guards, allowing the switch to be locked in the protective position, preventing unwanted access to machinery until dangerous operations have ceased.
