Safety switches comply with latest Machinery Directive

02 March 2009

The TP and STP safety switche ranges from Euchner enable machine builders to comply with the latest European Machinery Directive regarding ‘risk of being trapped in a machine (code 1.5.14)’. The new Directive (2006/42/EC) is due to become effective on 29th December 2009 and states ‘machinery must be designed, constructed or fitted with a means of preventing an exposed person from being enclosed within it or, if that is impossible, with a means of summoning help’.

The standard TP and STP range of safety switches are designed to ensure that guard devices cannot be opened when machines are in operation, and remain closed until all potentially hazardous moving parts come to a standstill. These switches feature an optional manual emergency release mechanism located at the rear of the switch housing.
