Force Guided Relays

Force guided relays, also known as safety relays, are an essential component in safety circuits for a variety of safety-critical applications. These relays are characterized by their force guided contacts, ensuring that a normally open contact (NO) and a normally closed contact (NC) cannot be closed simultaneously, a principle crucial for safety integrity. This feature is particularly important in applications such as emergency stop switches, light curtains, and interlock switches, where the reliable detection of both open and closed contact states is vital for ensuring safe operation.

In force guided relays, the contacts are mechanically linked, meaning that a failure in one contact, such as a welded closed contact, will prevent the other contacts from moving to an incorrect state. This design offers high diagnostic coverage, making these relays an ideal choice for monitoring safety devices and control systems in industrial settings. The technology behind these relays allows for the monitoring of the relay's state, ensuring that any failure or malfunction can be quickly identified and addressed.

Safety relay modules and safety controllers often incorporate force guided relays due to their reliability and compliance with safety regulations like the Machinery Directive. These modules and controllers are used to process signals from safety devices and execute the necessary safety functions, with the force guided relay ensuring that these functions are carried out without fail.
