AutomationDirect’s non-contact IDEM MGL locking safety switches are impossible to override. They combine magnetic locking and radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology for non-contact operation with anti-tamper protection.
Heavy-duty or medium-duty holding force versions protected by plastic, die cast metal or stainless steel IP69K-rated housings come in master coded or uniquely coded actuation configurations.
Two normally closed overload-protected safety outputs and one normally open auxiliary output are available for door-open indication. Two LEDs visible on either side of the cable exit point indicate possible switch states and a flexible actuator has high misalignment tolerance.
Remanent magnetization provides a light latch after unlocking.
The switches connect to popular safety relays, achieving up to PLe and Cat.4 for ISO3849-1 ratings. They come in 8-wire cable or M12 quick-disconnect options and connect up to 20 switches and E-stops in series.
