For Immediate release – Farmingdale, NY Tapeswitch Corporation released a completely NEW Multi-gate monitoring system, consisting of the HE Series non-contact safety interlock switches and multi-gate SCU-1 control unit for machine guarding, where monitoring for a guard is required and locking is not required, such as in several types of machinery including converting, packaging, paper, food and beverage, dairy, pharmaceutical, canning, mail, steel, motor, weighing, semiconductor, plastic, and aluminum machinery applications. The new line features the HE Series Interlock switches which are the latest coded magnetic non-contact switches. They feature fully encapsulated solid state, single point switching with built in, dual color, LED status indication. The switches offer a CAT 4, SIL 3 PLe safety performance level. It has 2 N/O and 1 N/C bi-directional solid state outputs. The solid state outputs offer simple series connection. They offer a 7mm switching distance and can approach on each other from most angles. The HE Series is IP67 rated. When combined with the SCU-1 control unit, it is a multi-gate switch solution capable of monitoring up to 30 switches in the series.
