Omron Scientific Technologies Incvisit website


The new T2011 universal tongue-operated safety interlock switch from Omron STI is just 25mm (0.98in) wide and 113mm (3.44in) long, but includes two N/C and one N/O, or three N/C contact configurations to support dual-channel safety monitoring and status monitoring. It is small, yet extremely versatile, with a glass-filled thermoplastic housing that enables the T2011 to be used in most applications while providing a minimum of two million actuations.

At 25mm (0.98in) wide x 82mm (3.23in) long, the smaller T2008 tongue-operated safety interlock switch is designed to provide a minimum of one million actuations in severely space-restricted applications, and can be installed on one-inch square tubing. One N/O and one N/C, or two N/C contact configurations are available to satisfy dual-channel safety monitoring requirements.

Both switches feature a NEMA6/IP67 enclosure to ensure rugged, reliable operation in water washdown environments, as well as a rotatable head that provides eight possible actuator entry points for versatile installation and use. An optional yellow slide bolt with integral handle and metal construction helps facilitate quick installation, easy recognition and long life on machine guards in the most demanding applications. An optional stainless steel alignment guide aids actuator entry.
