Stainless steel interlock switches
08 March 2016
New from Fortress Interlocks is a range of rugged stainless steel interlock switches for high purity applications such as food, beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical processing.
Also suitable for outdoor use, the amGardS40 range is manufactured from 316 stainless steel and modular in design to suit many industrial applications. Configurations include: solenoid locking safety switches; non-solenoid tongue switches; mechanical trapped key interlocks; and machine control stations.
The switches are supplied in enclosures sealed to IP69K, allowing them to be pressure washed at high temperatures; they also have a retention force of 10,000N – the highest currently available on the market – so are ideal for ensuring guard doors are held closed until machines and/or processes are in a safe condition.
Each module is just 40mm in width, so can easily be fitted to 40mm guarding sections or other areas where space is limited.
