Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0977228A2] A key-controlled electromechanical safety switch, in particular for machines or plants, which comprises a case (2) containing pairs of electric contacts (3,3'; 4,4') operatively coupled to a shank (10) slidable along a longitudinal axis (A), cam actuation means (6) located in an end portion or head (2'') of the case (2), interacting with the shank (10), at least one slot (8,8') on the head (2'') of said case (2) for insertion of a control key (7) adapted to interact with the actuation means (6) to control opening and closing of the contacts (3,3';4,4'), at least one blocking electromagnet (11) acting on the shank (5) to allow safe operation of the machine or installation. The electromagnet (11) comprises a core or full armature (13), distinct and separate from the shank (10), and the cam actuation means (6) include a cam (9) with at least one seat (23) adapted to interact with the key (7) to prevent its extraction when the electromagnet (11) is not excited. <IMAGE>
