Non-Contact

Coded Non Contact Safety Switches Plastic

All of IDEM's Coded Non Contact Safety Switches are designed to conform to IEC60947-5-3 and be used as directed by ISO12100, ISO14121 and EN60204-1.

They have a coded magnetic sensing which provides a wide sensing distance and provides a high tolerance to misalignment after sensing. They can be fitted behind stainless steel fittings and can operate from 4 directions even in extreme environments of temperature and moisture.

When used in combination with most dual channel safety monitoring relays they can be used to provide up to PLe Category 4 to ISO13849-1.

The Plastic IDECODE range have been developed for non-contact guard door interlocking in the applications of general factory automation, packaging and some food processing industries.

IDEM Coded Non Contact Safety Switches are designed to interlock hinged, sliding or lift off guard doors. They are especially advantageous in the following situations: When poor guard alignment exists; anti tamper sensing is required; high hygiene requirements exist, e.g. food industry hose down; where long life is required (no moving or touching parts) or where LED status indication is desirable.

MGL Non Contact RFID Locking Switches

The MGL range of Non Contact RFID Coded switches has been developed in order to provide and maintain a high level of functional safety whilst providing a reliable magnetic door interlock.

Flexibility for holding force is provided by the provision of 2 different switch sizes - Heavy Duty (1100N Stainless Steel, 1500N Plastic and Die Cast)and Medium Duty (600N Stainless Steel, 1000N Plastic and Die Cast) to cover all applications.

Coding is achieved by using magnetic and RFID techniques and both principles need to be satisfied for the switch to operate safely. The MGL range will connect to the majority of popular standard safety relays to achieve up to PLe/Category 4 to ISO13849-1.

Offered in Stainless Steel 316, high specification robust Plastic or Die-Cast Metal housings the MGL switch can be used in almost any environment including high pressure cleaning following contact with foreign particles.
