Safety you can trust, Save panel space with slim interlock switches!


Sunnyvale, CA, July 23, 2008– When it comes to machine safeguarding, IDEC offers the thinnest solenoid-type interlock safety switches in the world, the 15mm-wide HS6E.  HS6E interlock switches are the perfect way to safeguard machines with a solenoid door
interlock in compact housing. With 500N retention locking force and various mounting layouts, these high-quality safety switches have all the features you need while remaining affordable. 

When properly installed on a machine gate or door, the HS6E interlock 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 is available with spring or solenoid locking methods in addition to multiple monitor contacts for checking the actuator insertion or solenoid status. With the wide range of configurations offered, it’s possible to meet any desired level of machine safeguarding. Plus all HS6E interlock switches use direct open action contacts to ensure the main or monitor NC contacts are physically pulled apart or “force disconnected” when the actuator is removed from the safety switch.
