Safety switches suit tough environments

Guardmaster has introduced a stainless steel bodied version of its magnetically operated Ferrogard safety interlock switch, for heavy duty applications and environments where the safety switch could be subject to damage from impacts or heat.

On show at Drives & Controls, the Ferrogard units are a smaller, more robust and low cost version of the existing GS1 and GS2 safety switches. They are supplied with a high temperature cable which is rated for operation up to 125 degrees C.
