HS6E solenoid-type interlock safety switches are a compact way to safeguard
machines at just 15 mm wide. With 500 N retention locking force and various
mounting layouts, these safety switches can lock out or monitor an area where
potential machine hazards may exist for operators.
When a door is opened prior to start or during operation,the control circuit to the main power can be isolated, ensuring the machine is safe when the operator requires access. The HS6E comes with spring or solenoid locking methods, as well as multiple monitor contacts for
checking the actuator insertion or solenoid status. In addition, all switches use direct open action contacts to ensure the main or monitor NC contacts are physically
pulled apart or ‚â€œforce disconnected‚â€ when the actuator is removed from the safety switch.
