CE Approved

•   Coded magnetic operation, ABS housing
•   2 normally open + 1 normally closed output
•   Solid state bi-directional outputs
•   24V dc operation
•   LED indication   

The HE safety switches have up to 2 x N/O + 1 N/C bidirectional solid state outputs along with a built in LED(s) for indication. When installed on a machine guard, power is applied, and the switch and actuator are within the specified operating range, the N/O Outputs will be closed, the N/C Output will be open.

The HE safety switches are fully encapsulated into an ABS housing and are available with 5, 10 or 15 metre pre-wired cable. With a 7mm switching distance the actuator can approach the switch from most angles. When the switch is closed the targets on the printed face of the switch must be aligned.
