Oct. 7, 2016 – Omega says its K-SS Series tongue operated safety interlock switches are designed to fit to the leading edge of sliding, hinged or lift off machine guards to provide positively operated switching contacts.
They offer a choice of various actuators to “aid installation and maintain durability, while providing robust position interlock detection” for moving guards, says the company. The K-SS has a rugged 316 stainless steel body and IP69K enclosure protection, and are suitable for use in food processing, pharmaceutical, packaging and petrochemical industries.
