For doors, flaps and covers that must be closed during the operation of machines, safety switches for position monitoring and for the protection of personnel and systems are required.
In addition to standard designs for universal use, Safety Hinge Switches and Safety Position Switches are available as alternatives to hinge switches on flaps.
Safety switches with a separate actuator allow different approach directions and thereby facilitate universal use.
Safety position switches are used for the position monitoring of machines or as an alternative to hinge switches.
Safety hinge switches are used for the position monitoring of hard guards that can rotate (e.g. protective hoods) by means of a monitoring switch (without guard interlocking) integrated into the hinge.
