Mechanical Button

MF (Mechanical Force) buttons use a traditonal method of operation by activating once fully pressed down. The robust design is suitable for frequent long term use. Simple connectivity via an M12 cable.

Zero Force Button

ZF (Zero Force) buttons feature an ergonomic design, reducing the long term stress on the operators arms. The built in bi-colour indication displays: (red – waiting) and (green – activated) Simple connectivity via an M12 cable.

Connectivity Made Simple

The internal PCB features two M12 plugs for connecting your buttons and a pre-wired terminal block for external wiring. This makes for quick installation and reduced downtime.

Control Functionality

Every TouchSafe unit comes with five dia ’ 22.5mm clearance holes. IDEM offers a range of pilot devices suitable for use with TouchSafe. As standard, these will be blanked.

Save space and reduce wiring by installing the SCR-2H directly into the Touchsafe housing.

Mounting the SCR-2H internally is ideal for machines without safety control circuits / electrical cabinets. It is also a great way to save space, combining all connectivity and functions into one robust product.
