The MGB offers that little bit more: it is more than a safety switch, more than a bolt, and offers a lot more functionality. It is a system that can grow with your needs. Event the basic system comprising of the handle module and interlocking/locking module includes numerous functions. Whether interlocking, guard locking, escape release or other functions such as buttons for start/stop, emergency stop, etc. The MGB meets all your requirements for safety-related applications. And if your needs grow, the MGB system grows with them. Due to the sophisticated modular design, the interlocking/locking module can quickly become a small operator panel.
Note: Design type 2 safety switch has an actuator that is separate from the switch body. The two must be combined or separated for switch operation.
