Interlock switches for high purity applications
14 September 2016
Fortress Interlocks has launched a new range of rugged stainless steel interlock switches for high purity applications such as food, beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical processing.
It is also suitable for outdoor use. Manufactured from 316 stainless steel and modular in design, the amGardS40 range can be configured to suit many industrial applications.
Configurations for the amGardS40 include:
- Solenoid locking safety switches
- Non-solenoid tongue switches
- Mechanical trapped key interlocks
- Machine control stations
The switches are supplied in enclosures sealed to IP69K, allowing them to be pressure washed at high temperatures. They have a retention force of 10,000N, so are suitable for ensuring that guard doors are held closed until machines and/or processes are in a safe condition. Each module is just 40mm wide, so can easily be fitted to 40mm guarding sections or other areas where space is limited.
