You can use safety switches with a separate actuator to monitor protective isolating devices on sliding doors, swing doors or detachable paneling, for example. These safety switches are also available with guard locking to actively prevent a protective device from being opened.
We offer solutions for protective doors with a small radius, large doors with tolerances and doors exposed to vibrations. Available monitoring devices include mechanical switches, reed switches and transponder systems.
If personnel need to enter an area secured by protective devices while the machine is running in inching mode, for example, an enabling switch must be used.
