Emergency Stop

Emergency Stop (E Stop) switches are used by operators to shutdown a machine, system, or process.

Emergency Stop Switches are mounted on machines and sections of plant conveyors that cannot be protected by guards.

In combination with any dual channel safety monitoring controllers these switches can be used as emergency stop devices and monitored for up to Category 4/PLe to ISO13849-1.

All IDEM's Emergency Stop Switches conform to European Standard EN ISO13850 (formerly EN418) and IEC60947-5-5. They have a positive mechanical linkage between the switch contacts and the E Stop Button. The switches are mechanically latched and can then only be returned to the operational condition by pressing the reset button as required by EN ISO13850.


IDEM's range of Explosion Proof Emergency Stop Switches have been developed to satisfy the latest IECEx and ATEX Standards and provide Explosion Proof switching to satisfy the hazardous conditions created within the oil, chemical, pharmaceutical and food processing and packaging industries.

They combine Explosion Proof protection and satisfy high functional safety requirements all in one device.

They have been designed in either robust Die Cast (painted yellow) or Stainless Steel 316.

They are manufactured with ATEX EExd IIC T6 certified explosion proof contact blocks.

These E-Stops conform to European harmonised standards EN60079-0 and EN60079-1 and are suitable for use in European Zones 1,2,21,22 environments (Gas and Dust).

All switches have been designed to the latest ISO13850 standard and the switch mechanism latches the instant the safety contacts open.

Designed for use in the Oil, Petro-Chemical, Food Processing and Packaging, Pharmaceutical industries where potential explosive atmospheres are present.
