Magnetic safety switches

November 2, 2012

IDEC recently introduced two new non-contact magnetic safety switches, the HS7A-DMC and HS7A-DMP. The switches are designed for use in applications where no contact is desired between the switch and its actuating key and space is at a premium. At just 7 x 16 x 51 mm, the HS7A-DMC safety switches work well in combination with our safety relay modules. The HS7A-DMP interlock safety switches have up to three contacts and provide a high-quality, space-saving product at a competitive price. The auxiliary contacts enable PLCs to monitor the door status as operation signals can be read directly by controllers.
