Honeywell’s Micro Switch Division recently entered the machine safety market with a broad product portfolio. The new product families include safety control modules, safety mats, solenoid key-operated safety interlock switches, and a miniature safety interlock switch. Honeywell Micro Switch has supplied safety products in Europe since 1982 and has already adopted European standards for product design. The company says these European standards are quickly becoming the norm for the world. Honeywell adds its products meet or exceed the requirements of the European Machine Directive, American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The products are globally approved or listed by UL, CSA, and the European agencies BIA and TÜV.
