Contactless safety switch - Magnetic

Contactless magnetic switches are magnetically operated safety switches that serve to determine the position of rotatable, movable or detachable safety devices. Magnetic safety switches are easy to clean and are ideal for applications where pollution can occur or where high hygiene requirements apply. Due to the high degree of protection up to IP69K, the magnetic safety switches can be cleaned and applied under high pressure, both indoors and outdoors.

Magnetic ATEX switches

For environments where there is a risk of explosion due to the presence of gas or dust, ATEX magnetically operated switches are available. Due to the encapsulation of the contact with, for example, resin, the contactors can also be used in aggressive environments such as electroplating technology.

Different contactors/magnet switches:

  • Magnetic switches IP67
  • Encrypted contactors
  • Wireless magnetic switches
  • Contactors for ATEX
