When Sentrol Industrial's new non-contact 341-BT Guardswitch(TM) Safety Interlock Switch is used with the company's Model INT safety monitor relay, the switch is UL, CSA, TUV, and CE certified for risk categories I-IV. A Kynar(reg) housing fends off harsh environments and liquid contaminants. Dual-pole single-throw circuits are sealed in polyurethane. The magnetic mechanism allows activation through aluminum, stainless steel, and other non-ferrous materials. An LED display indicates switch status. Defeat-resistant features include multiple reeds having varying orientations and matched to individual coded magnets. A single INT relay operates up to 50 of the switches. Additional switch circuitry can accommodate applications demanding individual switch monitoring. Sentrol Industrial: Product Code 4312
