Industrial safety specialist, Fortress Interlocks, has introduced an ATEX Certified, explosion protected safety switch key station. The CPS4STOPXP key station is designed to release keys used to control mechanical door locks that provide access to machinery and process lines operating in potentially explosive environments. Both the switch and the door locks are suitable for use in Zone 1 and 2 environments and the electrical parts are ingress protected to IP67.

The station is available with up to a maximum of 5 safety key adaptors. By turning the first key the machine is isolated and the other 4 keys are released. These keys can be used to open a maximum of 5 ATEX Certified 'DM' mechanical door locks that give access to the safeguarded area.

Restarting the machine is only possible when all keys are back in the CPS4STOPXP key control station.

This interlocking system complies with the ATEX Directive, meeting the European Hazardous Location Designation: EExd IIC T6 category II2 GD, SIRA 00ATEX 1037X.
