The AIES contacts can be used to switch off the machine via its control circuitry or to initialise a signal to visual beacons/sounders. The switch is sealed to IP65 with 1N/O 2N/C contacts, it is rated to 10 amps making it ideal for use in cross monitored safety systems. The interlock is manufactured in a durable stainless steel.
The AIES access interlock with safety switch is used for machine isolation in order to protect the hazardous area from full body access while power is on.
The AIES access interlock with safety switch is designed to be part of a safety system and is used to isolate the power which then allows to gain access to a hazardous area.
The AIES access interlock is not designed for security purposes.
