Safe door monitoring directly at the hinge

Safety hinge switches are used for monitoring rotatable protective devices, e.g., swiveling gate and hinged doors. The hollow or solid shaft of the safety hinge switch forms a fixed and positive connection between the safety switch and the door hinge. These safety switches offer a high level of protection against tampering. The i10H safety hinge switch is enclosed in a compact plastic housing and comes with a solid stainless steel shaft.
