Coded Magnetic Switches with Solid State Outputs

The FE Range from Fortress Interlocks are a series of coded non-contact magentic safety switches with solid state bi-directional outputs that come in a variety of different sizes which have identical footprints and fixing points to other manufacturer's switches.

Unlike the FM Range, these switches have LED guard indication for monitoring the position of the guard door. Thanks to the solid state outputs, these switches are more tolerant to shock and machine vibration and, as a result, are unlikely to suffer from nuisance tripping. 

Available in both ABS plastic or stainless steel housings for hygienic applications within the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. High temperature variants are also available upon request.
