Safety Switches with guard locking

Safety position switches with guard locking function ensure that safety gates, safety doors and other protective guards remain closed for as long as a hazardous situation exists.

In production processes safety position switches have three main tasks:

Enabling the machine/process when the safety guard is closed and interlocked

Disabling the machine/process when the safety guard is opened

Position monitoring of the safety guard and interlock

The SLC / SLK safety position switches with separate actuator and guard locking enable the user to realise locking systems conforming to EN 1088, EN ISO 12100-1, 12100-2 and since 29.12.2009 to the compulsory Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC
