New Safety Interlock Switch

KEYENCE Corporation of America has released the new GS Series safety interlock switch, adding value to its safety light curtains and safety area scanners. It features a compact design, stable alignment and is easily integrated into any safety system.

Features of the switch include:

  • A redesigned actuator that allows for easier door closure and the ability to maintain door closure over time, even when doors/gates sag or machine vibration occurs. This improvement eliminates unnecessary machine stoppages.
  • Large LED status indicators change colors depending on door status, allowing personnel to easily check if the door is open/closed from a distance. These features maintain valuable machine uptime.
  • A small footprint allows for direct and flexible mounting, increasing the location options.
  • The switch integrates seamlessly and can achieve a high level of safety, all while eliminating the need for additional components.
  • Cascade/daisy chain up to 30 units while maintaining individual door I/O. This minimizes wiring yet allows for quick isolation of areas needing attention.

Each design feature serves to reduce time and costs associated with installation, maintenance and troubleshooting.
