Magnetic Safety Switches for Various Machinery Needs –
Magnetic safety switches are used on perimeter guarding doors and slide or swing-open shields for drills, mills and other machines. These reed-type magnetic safety switches utilize magnetic actuation. They offer non-contact reliability along with tolerance for misalignment. These magnetic safety switches are totally submersible, which makes them ideal for environments where hygiene is important. Each switch is supplied with a pre-wired 13-foot cable. On presenting the magnetic actuator to the switch, the high intensity field (from the actuator) causes the internal reed-switch safety contact(s) to close. On removing the actuator, the safety contact(s) open.
