Safety Interlock

12 Series
Interlock switches provide another layer of safety in industrial production environments, helping protect operators and equipment from the hazards of unexpected machine motion. IDEC offers a complete lineup of safety interlock switches to keep your personnel and production assets safe from harm. After simple installation into your safety circuit, interlock switches make sure doors and gates are closed before any machine or process can begin. IDEC’s family of HS safety interlock switches comes in a wide range of sizes, contact configurations and available functions to meet the needs of multiple applications. From machine tools and material handling equipment to packaging lines and semiconductor manufacturing, interlock switches are a robust and reliable method to help guarantee operator safety. Switches feature either metal or plastic heads and bodies and offer connection options to fit just about any safeguarding application. As with all IDEC safety products, HS interlock switches comply with domestic and European safety standards.
