NEW ELECTROMECHANICAL SAFETY SWITCHES AVAILABLE

Honeywell is committed to manufacturing safety solutions and we’ve doubled our product line to prove it. Honeywell offers a broad line of safety switches from miniature to heavy-duty switches. Honeywell’s newest additions are a result of continuous development and brand commitment.
In addition to Honeywell’s current safety switch offering, we are proud to introduce several new product series.

KEY-OPERATED SAFETY SWITCHES
GKE – IEC 20 mm mounting and IEC pricing are strong selling points of Honeywell’s GKE product line. Available with 20mm or 1/2 inch NPT conduit, the GKE has two key openings and either 1NC/1NO or 2NC switching capability.
GKN – Honeywell’s GKN switch has a common footprint and three contacts for safety monitoring, along with a flexible key. There are two switch stocking units (SKUs) for many applications. With four key openings, the GKN has up to three normally closed safety contacts and drop-in capability.
GKS (available December, 2006) – Designed to trap-and-hold the key until the hazard has been removed, the GKS uses a solenoid for either Power-to-lock or Power-to-unlock Situations. This configurable basic allows combinations of four contacts and complies with North American, European, and Chinese standards. Potential applications include an access panel for a press, robotic machinery, and automated assembly areas.

NON-CONTACT SAFETY SWITCHES
FF and FFS – These non-contact safety switches are a strategic fit into the Honeywell safety switch line as they complement the electromechanical offering. These non-contacting, hard-guarding solutions cope with Slop In the application or a large actuation window to reduce alignment issues between the switch and magnet actuator. Priced competitively, these switches have several potential applications, including pick-and-place packaging/assembly equipment, semi-con equipment, and printing machinery. Product series include: FF2, FF3, FF5, FF6, and FFS.

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS, APPROAVALS, and HOUSINGS
These safety switches may be appropriate for the following applications:
• Packaging equipment
• Pick-and-place assembly equipment
• Semicon equipment
• Plastic molding equipment
• Woodworking machinery
• Textile machinery
• Printing machinery

HONEYWELL Microswitch; Subminiature, Standard and Large Basics Switches

Logo.jpg

General Information:
MICROSWITCH standard basic switches are precision snap-action mechanisms enclosed in accurately molded plastic cases. These switches are carefully manufactured and thoroughly inspected. They are industry-known for their compactness, light weight, accurate repeatability and long life.

BZ/BA Series Standard Basic Switches are used for simple on/off applications and meet the needs of most applications. However, modifications of contact design and material, spring configuration and plunger location create other types with greater electrical load handling capacity. Other changes in materials and switch design provide operating characteristics; temperature tolerances and sealing that cover a wide range of special requirements, for example;

SM Series Subminiature Basic Switches are used for simple or precision on/off application needs. These switches combine small size and light weight with ample electrical capacity, precision operation and long life.

SX Series Subminiature Basic Switches are used for simple or precision on/off application needs. They are small, precision snap-action switches that are ideal where savings in space and weight are important.

UM Series Subminiature Basic Switches are used for simple or precision ON/OFF application needs. These switches combine small size and light weight with ample electrical capacity, low cost and long life.

UX Series Subminiature Basic Switches are used for simple or precision on/off application needs. These are small, low-cost snap-action switches which are ideal where savings in space and weight are important.

V5 and V7 Series Basic Switches are used for simple or precision on/off, end of limit, presence/absence, pressure, temperature and manual operator interface application needs.

ZM Series Subminiature Basic Switches are used for simple or precision ON/OFF application needs. These switches combine small size and light weight with ample electrical capacity, low cost and long life.

ZW Series Subminiature Basic Switches are used for simple or precision ON/OFF application needs. These switches combine small size and light weight with ample electrical capacity, low cost and long life.

ZX Series Subminiature Basic Switches are used for simple or precision ON/OFF application needs. These switches combine small size and light weight with ample electrical capacity, low cost and long life
