Force-guided safety relays feature a fail-safe, "active," force-guided contact design that ensures that NO and NC contacts may not be simultaneously closed. Users may specify relays with forced-guided contact sets containing two to 10 contacts in numerous sizes, contact configurations, and materials to match specific applications. The design also includes chambering and electrical separation between logic and load contacts, due to reinforced insulation between the contacts within each contact set.
