Honeywell GKME Series Extends Safety Switch Series, Helps Reduce Wiring and Installation Time


GKME Dual-Connection Series Enhances Safety, Productivity with Daisy-Chain Capabilities

Honeywell introduces the MICRO SWITCH GKME-series Dual Connection Safety Switch. This product line extension of the GKM series includes two pre-assembled connectors allowing for daisychain connection from switch to switch. The ease of installing GKME switches may reduce wiring time up to fifty percent, resulting in significant savings for the customer.


The GKME is designed to enhance machine safety – the removal of any switch indicates that a door is open and breaks the electrical safety chain. The design facilitates planned and unplanned maintenance by allowing modules of the machine to be easily removed and replaced, followed by plug and play of the safety switch.

Potential applications include packaging and assembly equipment; textile and printing machinery.

HONEYWELL Safety Switches Product Range



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.

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.

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.

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
