XW Series

The XW series of Emergency Stop switches include a revolutionary new technology called "safe break action" that will change the way E-Stop switches are designed. This innovative concept provides greater levels of human safety and is the first of its kind in the world.

Conventional E-Stop switches are designed with spring pressure on the Normally Closed (NC) contacts, keeping them in the closed position and allowing the machine to operate. Improper installation or excessive force to the stop button in an emergency may break or dislodge a vital part, causing the spring loaded contact to stay closed. This situation renders the E-Stop incapable of stopping the machine and can lead to catastrophic events, personal injury and possible loss of life.

XW Series

If you are looking for IDEC XW Series Emergency Stop Switches, please call us on (844) 331-9377 or email us at we will do our best to help you find the IDEC IZUMI XW series switches that you are looking for at the most competitive prices possible. If you are searching for IDEC XW series E-Stops technical information (data-sheets) please use the datasheets or product selection guide page links.

This one-of-a-kind "safe break action" design, found only in the IDEC XW, XA, and X6 series, reverses the energy direction and uses the spring-pressure to assure that the NC contacts will open if the emergency switch is damaged or the contact blocks separate due to excessive force.

Key Features:

  • IDEC's innovative "safe break action" ensures all NC contacts open if the contact block is separated from the operator
  • NEW Smooth button option resists dirt buildup, and provides attractive appearance
  • Smooth button models also feature green mechanical status indicator
  • Pushlock turn reset and push-pull functions built into same unit
  • The depth behind the panel is only 48.7mm for traditional button, and 46.4mm for smooth button
  • Direct opening action mechanism (IEC60947-5-5, 5.2, IEC60947-5-1, Annex K)
  • Degree of protection IP65 (IEC60529)
  • UL recognized, c-UL approved, EN compliant

The NC contacts will reliably open, even if they are welded, and stop the machine. XW series switches offer up to four "safe-break" contacts with a depth behind the panel that is half the size of conventional E-Stop switches. This means that there is an additional contact available and the switches can be used in Level 4 safety category applications.

New additions to the XW series include a smooth button, which resists dirt buildup and contamination, making it ideal for food, beverage, and pharmaceutical applications. And the attractive appearance and rugged construction make it suitable for a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications. These new models also include a green mechanical indicator, which allows an operator to view the status of the switch from a distance.

The XW E-Stop switches are secured from the rear of the control panel so that the E-Stop cannot be removed from the front. Another unique feature of the XW E-Stop switches is that either a push-turn or push-pull reset method can be used to reset the switches. This eliminates any possible confusion for operators when resetting the switch. The durability and quality of these new E-Stop switches make them extremely reliable. They can withstand the highest stress caused by panic or a reaction to an emergency situation.

The Ferrite Suppression Core is packaged in a nylon case ready to clamp on a single cable or several cables connecting to electronic equipment. The purpose of the core is to attenuate conducted Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) in the 25 MHz to 200 MHz range. Increasing the number of cable turns through the core increases the impedance of the core. A higher impedance results in greater EMI attenuation.

Sentrol Contacts

The High-Impact Plastic Housing protects the contact from corrosion or high resistance buildup. End users simply insert the cable into the contact housing; there is nothing to line up. An alarm condition is created when the cord with the magnet is pulled from the housing. 2100 Series contacts extend monitored security protection to items such as snowmobiles, lawn and garden equipment, boats, trailers, bicycles, and motorcycles. Magnapull pull-apart cords can also be
