ImageCarlo Gavazzi launched a new range of mechanical safety switches, which are capable of being used in any number of workplace safety applications. These switches are constructed of durable thermoplastic or rugged zinc alloy metal and can withstand the most demanding of installation environments, increasing worker safety and improving productivity, says the company. The most commonly used types are offered, including key interlock door switches, hinge-mount switches, pull-wire switches and standard limit switches with manual re-set buttons. The safety switches are available in four different body sizes, including the most popular industrial styles. Ten different contact configurations are offered and five different cable-gland entry options are available.
