Three-position enabling switch

The HE6B enabling switches are ergonomically designed to work where human interaction is required to turn on a machine or robot arm while the user is in a potentially dangerous area. The three-position switch turn machines on when pressed and turns them off when overpressed or squeezed, as long as the switch is installed correctly in an adequate safety circuit. Two contacts are provided so if one contact fails, the other can disable machine operation.

A waterproof rubber boot, available in yellow or black, provides IP65 protection.
