IDEC’s HS1T switch offers up to 5,000N of locking force.
IDEC Corporation released its HS1T interlock switch with solenoid that delivers up to 5,000N of locking force due to a metal head that integrates the locking and mounting functions. The switch also includes three independent rotary cams. Two cams control the locking mechanism and one drives the door monitor contact. The HS1T meets the requirements of ISO 14119:203 for Lock Monitoring. The unit also features multiple cable entry ports. Designers can choose from spring lock or solenoid lock styles, with several options for contact configurations. These options are complemented by an IP67 and Type 4X indoor use only rating. An integrated solenoid consumes 200mA while actuated.
