Switches for Machine Safety
ABB JOKAB SAFETY offers a 1,200-unit line of new key interlock switches and non-contact switches, greatly expanding its range of tailored, turnkey safety systems for industrial applications. According to the company:
- The new MKey Interlock Switches provide position interlock detection for moving guards, and are designed to fit the leading edge of sliding, hinged or lift-off machine guards.
- MKey Interlock Switches are available in two holding strength versions, 12N and 40N, and have several actuator types for differing applications.
- The new Sense Coded Non-Contact Switches, designed to interlock hinged, sliding and removable guards doors, are especially targeted to operate in environments that require the highest level of safety.
- Sense Coded Non-Contact Switches are very compact, making them easy to position and hide on gates and hatches.
