Interlock combines maximum force in a compact package

By Chemical Engineering |

IDEC

The new HS1T interlock switch with solenoid (photo) delivers an industry-leading 5,000 N of locking force, with many features included to maximize protection in machine and equipment guarding applications. Such interlock switches are incorporated into machinery and equipment to both monitor and lock gates, doors and similar access points. Many of these applications endure high vibration, thrown debris, physical abuse and even bypass attempts, so they must have a high locking force. Delivering 5,000 N of locking force, the HS1T is much more powerful than comparably-sized devices. This is achieved in such a compact size due to a metal head integrating the locking and mounting functions, an improvement over older designs, where the head could break away from the mounting body. Also, to maximize installation options, the remaining actuator portion can be independently rotated from the high-strength head using only one screw. — IDEC Corp., Sunnyvale, Calif.
