IDEC Safety interlock switch
The HS1T interlock switch with solenoid delivers 5,000 N of locking force. It has a metal head that integrates the locking and mounting functions. The remaining actuator portion can be rotated independently from the high-strength head using only one screw. It includes three independent rotary cams: Two cams control the locking mechanism and one drives the door monitor contact. This arrangement provides redundancy and additional strength and ensures the monitoring function continues to work even if a locking cam is damaged. The switch meets the requirements of ISO 14119:203 for lock monitoring. An energy-efficient solenoid consumes only 200 mA while actuated.
