Safety lock on guard!


IDEM's extensive range of Solenoid Locking Tongue Safety Switches have been designed to provide robust position interlock detection for moving guards and provide a lock mechanism to keep the guard closed until the hazard has been removed.

They are tongue operated and have been designed and manufactured in the UK to fit to the leading edge of sliding or hinged machine guards to provide positively operated switching contacts and provide a tamper resistant key mechanism.
