AutomationDirect Offers IDEM Non-contact RFID Coded Safety Switches

AutomationDirect IDEM Switch

August 11, 2020


New from AutomationDirect, the IDEM KLP-Z / KLM-Z / KL3-Z Series of RFID Coded Safety Switches are designed to fit into the leading edge of machine guard doors to provide robust guard locking while also providing a double tamper resistant interlock mechanism.

They are designed to provide robust position interlock detection for moving guards and will remain locked until the solenoid voltage is applied to the switch. These switches can be used in conjunction with delay timers to provide the solenoid energize signal only after a pre-determined amount of time has passed.

When used in combination with a dual channel safety relay or control device, Non-Contact Safety Switches can be used to provide protection up to Category 4 and PLe to ISO13849-1.


  • Highly effective anti-tamper RFID coding
  • Holding force of 3000N to keep guard doors closed until hazards have been removed
  • Unique rotating head offers both front and end actuation
  • Diecast housing fitting with a robust 316 stainless steel head
  • Choice of standard or flexible actuators
  • For use as directed by ISO14119 and EN ISO12100
  • Enclosure protection: IP67 (IP69K on all KL3-Z models)
  • Agency Approvals: cULus, CE
  • 1-year warranty on all parts
