Schneider Electric’s new Electroslim XCS Series include in-built safety interlock switches designed for gate guard mounting and added machine safety. 

Models in the Electroslim line-up are slim, coming in either metal or plastic. Both models come standard with a manual key for locking and unlocking options, which Schneider says is ideal for commissioning works. 

The units offer the ability to hold up to six contacts, three safety and three auxiliary. They feature an interlocking  opening capability of right and left doors and covers, along with simple wiring via numbered cage clamp terminals.

For added safety and increased protection of workers in the event of an accidental machine start during maintenance, the Electroslim metal versions are also available with a ‘push to release’ button on the rear of the switch.
