Omron STI is introducing two new hinge-operated safety interlock switches ideally suited for use on smaller guard doors. The HP2008 series is a compact 25mm (0.98in) wide x 85.5mm (3.37in) long, while the HP2011 series features a slim 25mm (0.98in) x 115.5mm (4.55in) profile. Both are said to be quick and easy to install, and can be mounted on square tubing as small as 1 inch in width.
These switches are available in solid or hollow-shaft versions and provide force-guided contacts with tamper-resistant operation.
A NEMA 6 enclosure enables them to withstand water washdown cleaning while providing a minimum of four million actuations on small swinging guard doors. Each features a 360-degree rotating head that rotates in 90-degree increments to give four possible shaft operating positions.
The HP2008 and HP2011 hinge-operated safety interlocks conform to European safety standards, carry the CE mark, are UL and C-UL listed, and are BG approved.
