The HE-Series is a coded magnetic safety system. Fully encapsulated solid state safety switches with a slim-line control unit. Combining the ease of use and maintenance of a simple magnetic safety switch, with the improved security, performance levels and indication of Mechan’s electronic switching. Available in ABS or 316 Stainless Steel, the HE switches withstand vibration, wash down and are ideal for use in the food processing / filling and packing industries as well as many other non-locking machine guard applications.

MAGNASAFE is a complete range of non-contact magnetically operated switches for use in safety applications. Constructed using special reed switches, encapsulated into ABS housings, these switches are tested to perform up to 1,000,000 operations at full load.
The MAGNASAFE non-contact switches are easy to fit and the 10mm+ switching distance ensures tolerance to misalignment and gate wear. They are ideal for wet, dusty, oily environments and in areas where hygiene is important.

With the growing demand for simple, efficient and yet more secure safety systems, the ISIS system offers the ideal solution. A tamper resistant non-contact safety switch system, suitable for use in most types of machine guarding applications where guard locking is not required. The ISIS safety switches available in both ABS or 316 grade stainless steel.
Tested and approved by TUV to CAT 3 SIL 3 PLe performance the ISIS system is also UL approved for the USA.

The RSS series safety switches applies radio frequency identification technology (RFID) and provides additional security with up to 4 billion unique codes. The RSS safety switches can achieve type 4 high level coding according to EN 14119 safety standard.
These safety switches are available in 5 sizes, the RDNK, RSSO, RSSK, RSSR and RSSG and are rated to IP69K for use in wet or dusty environments. Ideal for replacing standard magnetic safety switches where additional security / reliability and indication at the switch is required.

The DIN rail mounting safety control unit can monitor up to 30 Mechan Safety Switches and/or Emergency Stop Buttons in one system. The electronic non-contact safety switches are fully encapsulated, easy to install and tolerant to misalignment.
Together the switches and control module provide a safety system capable of meeting the requirements CAT 4 SIL 3 PL-e that can be used in the harshest environments, providing long term reliability.
