BERNSTEIN Safety Switches for the Workplace

Machines that continue running after being switched off are often part of automated production processes. Safety guards prevent operator access and must therefore be kept closed until the hazards posed by machine movement have ceased. Safety position switches with interlock function ensure that safety gates, safety doors and other protective guards remain closed for as long as a hazardous situation exists.

In production processes, safety position switches have three main tasks:

  • Enabling the machine/process when the safety guard is closed and interlocked
  • Disabling the machine/process when the safety guard is opened
  • Position monitoring of the safety guard and interlock

BERNSTEIN SLK/SLM safety position switches with separate actuators and interlock enable the user to realise locking systems conforming to EN 1088, EN ISO 12100-1, 12100-2 and since 29.12.2009 to the compulsory Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
