IDEM Guard Locking Switches With Standard Actuators Provide A Lock Mechanism To Keep The Guard Closed Until The Hazard Has Been Removed.
IDEM Guard Locking Switches provide all the features and specifications of the standard KLM, but with an extra Rear Manual Release Button at the rear of the housing. Where the risk assessment for the application permits, a non latching manual escape release is provided to enable quick release of the switch lock in case of emergency. The switch can be mounted such that access to the release button is available from inside the active guard area. Designed to fit to the leading edge of sliding or hinged machine guards to provide positively operated switching contacts and provide a tamper resistant, durable key mechanism for long lasting protection. Guard locking switches available with Lid Release, No Release, and Standard Release. Switches are constructed with Die Cast, Polyester, and Stainless Steel. Dimensions and types vary per model.
