Safety Switches

Safety switches are encountered at many locations where safety is demanded for people and machinery. They are used for protecting mobile separative protective devices, the position determination of dangerous movements and the safe stop function. The portfolio is divided into three groups: Electro-mechanical and non-contact safety switches and safety command devices.

In conjunction with sens:Control – safe control solutions, SICK offers ideal complete solutions from a single source.
