11 July 2014
amGard pro is Fortress Interlocks’ modular interlock range for safety gate switches for heavy duty applications. Its modular construction (made up of actuators, head modules, adaptors, electrical switches/locks and optional push-button pods) allows easy configuration for virtually any safeguarding application up to SIL3 (EN/IEC 60261) Category 4 and PLe (EN/ISO 13849-1).
To assist with amGard pro configuration Fortress now has a Product Configurator on its website. By following the simple steps it allows the user configure a complete unit, with part numbers, an image, a 2D drawing and a 3D model.
The amGard pro offers a range of fully integrated safety interlocks, including solenoid and non-solenoid safety switches with many additional options including key control modules, emergency release, redundant sensors, lock out/tag out and push buttons, e-stops and indication lights for enhanced functionality.
