Enabling switch for safety during setup or maintenance operation

The E100 enabling switch ensures that even critical machine functions are executed safely. They are used when work has to be performed in a hazardous area in "setup" operating mode. All enabling switches are configured as 3-stage switches, i.e., movements can only be activated in the middle position because this is the only position in which all contacts are closed.
