IDEC launches its smallest 5-pole interlock switch
23 June 2011
IDEC has launched its smallest 5-pole interlock switches with solenoid locking and unlocking facility. Continuing with the rapid product development of their safety product portfolio, IDEC is broadening the interlock switch range by the addition of a subminiature device that offers the ideal solution for applications in which space is at a premium.
The HS6E is the new addition to the solenoid interlock switch range and is packed with features. The device, not only has a compact body measuring just 75 x 15 x 75mm, making it the thinnest solenoid type interlock switch in the world, but also offers energy saving over the competition by consuming only 110mA at 24Vdc when energized.
Manual unlocking is possible on three sides of the switch and an optically enhanced lens provides a wide viewing angle for solenoid power indication. Reversible mounting and angled cable entry is provided, the switch allowing four actuator insertion directions. Additionally, to ensure commonality for the user, the HS6E (solenoid type) shares the same range of straight, angled and adjustable actuators as the HS6B (non solenoid type).
Depending on the requirements of the application, the interlock switch can either be supplied in either a spring lock, solenoid release or solenoid lock, spring release function. Numerous contact configurations are available from its five contacts, giving the user a full range of options. The switch comes complete with a 5m long connecting cable; it is RoHS compliant and has an electrical and mechanical life of 1,000,000 operations.
