Extended Type 2 Safety Switches

Product Announcement from Euchner-U.S.A., Inc.


EUCHNER STP Extended Type 2 Safety Switches are used to protect personnel by monitoring and interrupting the safety circuit depending on the position of the machine guard. The STP features a locking solenoid that holds the guard closed until a stored energy hazard has passed. The STP Extended switch allows the integration of control and display elements in the switch. It can also prevent damage to a part or material in process due to an inadvertent machine shutdown. The STP has a metal actuator head with a narrow thermoplastic housing. To meet current worldwide standards, safety interlock components cannot be easily bypassed. STP Design Type 2 Safety Switches meet this standard.
