FREMONT, CA – Omron Scientific Technologies, Inc. introduces two new hinge-operated safety interlock switches ideally suited for use on smaller guard doors. The HP2008 Series is a compact 25mm (0.98 in.) wide x 85.5mm (3.37 in.) long, while the HP2011 Series features a slim 25mm (0.98 in.) x 115.5mm (4.55 in.) profile. Both are 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° rotating head that rotates in 90° increments to give four possible shaft operating positions.
HP2008 and HP2011 hinge-operated safety interlocks conform to European safety standards, carry the CE mark, are UL and C-UL listed, and BG approved.
