Courtesy: Omega EngineeringThe Omega K-SS Series tongue operated safety interlock switches are designed to fit to the leading edge of sliding, hinged or lift off machine guards to provide positively operated switching contacts. They offer a choice of various actuators to aid installation and maintain durability, while providing robust position interlock detection for moving guards. The K-SS has a 316 stainless steel body and IP69K enclosure protection that is designed to cope with the rigorous applications of the food processing, pharmaceutical, packaging, and petrochemical industries. The switch is rigidly mounted to the frame of the guard or machine. The actuator is fitted to the moving part (frame) of the guard and is aligned to the switch entry aperture. When the actuator is withdrawn from the switch, the safety contacts are positively opened and the machine circuit is broken.
