Safety Switching & Interlocking

Safety switches are monitored mechanical devices used to provide feedback to safety controllers. These switches are available in a number of different forms including push buttons, hinges, door switches and rope pull switches. PacificMI stocks and supplies a wide range of products to provide solutions for a variety of applications.

E-Stops

Available in 22mm and 30mm mounting systems, the Idec range of push buttons is designed to offer reliable service in difficult conditions. Advanced features include integrated LED signalling, contact block failure detection and forced disconnect contacts. E-Stops can be supplied pre-fitted in metallic or non-metallic enclosures upon request.

Coded Magnetic & Hinge Switches

Door access control can be monitored with coded magnetic and hinge switches. PacificMI supplies a range of products with varying mechanical and electrical configurations to suit different requirements. A high safety rating can be achieved via the use of an appropriate safety relay. Alternatively, stand alone models are available which are capable of achieving a CAT 3 rating.

Rope Pull Switches

Rope pull switches provide a simple means of triggering a safety circuit in applications involving conveyors or large machines. Bernstein rope pull switches are designed for spans of up to 75m and include integrated E-Stops for additional safety. Their compact size means that they are easy to integrate into existing systems.
