These switches have positive opening contacts (in accordance to NFPA 79) and redundancy to guarantee that they fail to a safe state The interlocks include solenoid locking, narrow metal body housing and metal actuating head, rotatable actuator head with top and side entry, actuator insertion funnel that increases entry area, straight, bent, and hinged actuators (including over-travel).
