Magnetic safety switches
Magnetic Safety Switches (parts #CMC097 and #CMC098) are versatile for use on slide- or swing-open style machine shields. They offer noncontact reliability and tolerance for limited misalignment between the switch and the actuator. When a shield is closed, a magnetic actuator makes contact with the switch, creating a high-intensity field that allows the machine to be started when the operator is ready. Upon detaching, the safety contact opens, the power is interrupted and the machine turns off.
