IDEC introduces two new non-contact magnetic safety switches, HS7A-DMC and HS7A-DMP. Designed to be used in applications where no contact is desired between the switch and its actuating key, and space is at a premium, common applications for these switches include those where:
- No contaminants can be trapped in or around devices, such as food & beverage and pharmaceutical applications.
- A precise door guide is not possible.
- There is zero operating force, such as lightweight or Plexiglas doors
- When there are alignment issues with the switch and actuating keys
- Doors are subject to heavy vibration
- A standard mechanical safety interlock switch would be more difficult to clean, such as a wash down application
Compact Magnetic Safety Switches (HS7A-DMC Series)
At just 7 x 16 x 51 (mm), the HS7A-DMC safety switches work well in combination with our safety relay modules, making them the smallest Category 4 device in the market.
3-contact Magnetic Safety Switches (HS7A-DMP Series)
The HS7A-DMP interlock safety switches have up to three contacts and provide a high-quality, space-saving product at a competitive price. The auxiliary contacts enable PLCs to monitor the door status as operation signals can be read directly by controllers.
