Emergency Stop (E Stop) Safety Switches
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 E stop switches can withstand sparking and flames and are IECEx and ATEX certified.
Guardian Line Series Grab Wire Safety Rope Switches
Designed to be mounted on machines and sections of conveyors which cannot be protected by guards.
In contrast to traditional mushroom head type emergency stop buttons, Grab Wire Safety Rope Switches can initiate the emergency command from any point along the installed rope length and provide robust Emergency Stop Rope Pull protection for exposed conveyors or machines.
In combination with a dual channel safety monitoring relay IDEM's Guardian Line Series Grab Wire Safety Rope Switch System can be used as emergency stop devices monitored for up to Category 4 to EN 954-1 or PLe ISO 13849-1.
All conform to ISO 13850 and IEC 60947-5-5 and they have a positive mechanical linkage between the switch contacts and the wire rope. The switches have wire breakage monitoring.
On pulling the rope, anywhere along the length, the safety contacts are positively opened and the auxiliary contacts are closed. The swtiches are mechanically latched and can then only be returned to the operational condition by pressing the blue reset button as required by ISO 13950.
An optional 2 colour LED indicator is available to enable switch status to be viewed from a distance.
Non Contact MAGNETIC Safety Switches
All of IDEM's Non Contact Magnetic Safety Switches are designed to conform to IEC 60947-5-3 and be used as directed by ISO12100, ISO14121 and EN 60204-1.
They have magnetic sensing which provides a wide (>12mm) sensing distance and provides a high tolerance to misalignment after sensing.
They can operate from 4 directions even in extreme environments of temperature and moisture.
They have volt free high power switching capability (either 1A or 2A ac/dc) and can be used independently to switch low risk applications, or connect to a Safety Relay to provide higher safety levels.
The Plastic IDEMAG range have been developed for non contact guard door interlocking (hinged, sliding or removable) in the applications of general factory automation, packaging and some food processing industries.
Magnetic High Power Switching up to 230Vac 2A.
Dual channel safety output 2NC (1NO auxiliary optional).
Enclosure protected to IP67 or IP69K, resistant to high temperature hosing and detergent washdown.
Offered with a choice of miniature, compact, wide or barrel type housings.
Resistance to many organic and inorganic chemicals.
SKORPION Trapped Key Interlocks DIE CAST METAL
DIE CAST MIRROR POLISHED VERSION
Designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom, SKORPION - Idem's Trapped Key System has been developed to provide extremely robust mechanical coded key safeguarding and interlocking for hazardous machinery and applications.
The system works on the principle of releasing heavy duty coded mechanical keys in a pre-determined sequence to ensure machine power has been isolated before any access can be made into areas where hazards or dangerous machinery is present.
Once the machine control has been isolated (achieved by turning the first key in the system) the removed key from the isolator is then used to release other trapped keys to enable access to the guarded areas.
Following release of the first key (isolator) safeguarding is achieved without the need for expensive and time consuming electrical wiring - thus making the system perfect for use in harsh and challenging environments and applications.
