Omron Canada is introducing its A4EG Enabling Grip Switch, designed to work as an essential part of all machines, work cells or processes that require setup and inspection. The device uses Omron’s A4E Enabling Switch, originally intended for robot control pendant manufacturers, to provide a posi- tive tactile feedback with a “click”, ensuring operation in three discernible positions. This three-position enabling grip operates either by depressing or releasing the actuator, according to new machine safety standards. No matter where the button is pressed, the positive “click” feeling provides feedback that the switch has operated.

The A4EG’s split enclosure design provides easy access to wiring terminals and easy replacement of rubber parts that can wear over time. Additionally, the switch comes standard with a cable strain relief, meaning there are no extra parts to purchase.
