Miniature Tongue Interlock Safety Switches (Plastic)

IDEM’s miniature tongue operated interlock switches feature a tamper-resistant interlocking mechanism which cannot be easily defeated. They are designed to provide position interlock detection for small moving guards.

These switches feature a compact design (25mm wide / 18mm fixing) and can be fitted to the leading edge of sliding, hinged, or lift-off guards. With dual entry slots and rotatable heads, movable only by releasing the cover screws, these switches offer eight different options for actuator entry.

Depending upon the risk assessment for the application, they can be used independently to provide positively operated contacts to IEC60947-5-1 or they can be used in combination with any dual channel safety monitoring relays.
