Tapeswitch Corporation offers complete lines of non-contact interlock switches and multi-gate monitoring systems for machine guarding in SSS switches (standalone electronic switches), F - Series (coded electronic switches with up to 500000 unique codes), Magnasafe (magnetic switches), and ISIS Series Safety Switches (coded magnetic switches and systems). The New HE Series interlock switch system is a multi-gate monitoring system The new line features the HE Series Interlock switches which are the latest coded magnetic non-contact switches. They feature fully encapsulated solid state, single point switching with built in, dual color, LED status indication. The switches offer a CAT 4, SIL 3 PLe safety performance level. It has 2 N/O and 1 N/C bi-directional solid state outputs. The solid state outputs offer simple series connection. They offer a 7mm switching distance and can approach on each other from most angles. The HE Series is IP67 rated. When combined with the SCU-1 control unit, it is a multi-gate switch solution capable of monitoring up to 30 switches in the series. Since the HE series is a HED double switch, it reduces the amount of wiring for multiple gates and reduces the brackets needed for mounting the switches.
