SMC -Magnetic Safety Switch for Mast

Magnetic Safety Switch

Simple yet effective, the Magnetic Safety Switch is conveniently fitted to the outer tube of the mast and operated by a set of magnets positioned at the bottom of the inner mast tube.

The purpose of this switch is to give an audio or visual warning that the telescopic mast has not been fully retracted. When fitted in a vehicle, it can be used via a relay to interrupt the ignition circuit and prevent movement of the vehicle when the mast is not retracted,

It is fitted to the outer tube of he mast and is operated by a set of magnets placed at the bottom of the inner mast tube.

These magnets are securely bonded into an aluminium housing, which can be effortlessly inserted into the top section of the mast without requiring any dismantling. Inserting the magnet housing is a breeze – just remove the plastic end-cap of the top section and insert the housing. The neoprene ‘O’ ring automatically retains it in position, providing a secure fit.
