Original Press Release:
New 30mm XN Emergency Stops Provide a Higher Level of Function and Safety Than Ever Before!
Think Automation and beyond ...
Sunnyvale- The XN4E series is the first and only to enable maintenance technicians to install up to twenty personal padlocks, preventing unauthorized resetting of the latched emergency stop switch and making service or maintenance safer to perform.
XN switches also incorporate our unique "Safe Break Action." Only IDEC switches ensure NC contacts open when the contact block is separated from the operator. NC contacts of conventional E-Stops remain closed if the contact block gets separated from the operator. That means your E-Stop button may not be able to communicate to stop your machine, leaving workers at risk of accident, injury or worse.
Direct Opening Action ensures that even if the contacts are welded, the force applied on the button will directly open the contact. And a Safety Interlock Mechanism keeps contacts open when the operator is locked.
The XN1E series of E-Stops also save you space behind your panel with depths of only 47.7mm for four contacts. While the XN5E series only extends 21mm from the front of the panel, reducing the surface area for dirt or dust to collect.
All XN E-stops are ROHS compliant, UL-listed, c-UL, TUV and CE marked. The XN4E series also complies with OSHA and ISO 12100-2:2003 standards.
