Solenoid Controlled Safety Interlock Switches

Solenoid Controlled Safety Interlock Switches

IDEM’s extensive range of Solenoid Locking Tongue Safety Switches has been designed to provide robust position interlock detection for moving guards and provide a lock mechanism to keep the guard closed until the hazard has been removed.

They are tongue operated and have been designed and manufactured in the UK to fit to the leading edge of sliding or hinged machine guards to provide positively operated switching contacts and provide a tamper resistant, not easily defeatable key mechanism.

Depending on the risk assessment for the application they can be used independently to provide positively operated contacts to IEC60947-5-1. Additionally they can be used in combination with any dual channel safety monitoring relays to provide up to PLe Category 4 to ISO13849-1 or SIL3 EN62061.

Available in various materials and housing styles to provide complete flexibility of choice depending upon the application. They offer a choice of contact blocks, LED diagnostics and various actuators to aid installation and maintain durability throughout the rigorous applications of Factory Automation, Packaging, Food Processing, Pharmaceutical and Petro-Chemical Industries.
