Fitting safety switches to machine guarding
05 June 2017
Configuring a mounting plate for an interlock is easy with Fortress Interlock's new Eazi-fit mounting system, which allows any amGardpro interlock safety switch to be easily fitted to machine guarding.
Suitable for both hinged and sliding guards, the robust Eazi-fit is easy to select using Fortress' online configurator, which provides 2D and 3D images and models, together with part numbers to simplify ordering.
There are two configuration options: 1) Need to configure a new interlock - If you configure a new amGardpro interlock switch using the online configurator and choose to add a mounting plate, the configurator will automatically select the appropriate plate, which is then pre-fitted to the interlock for easy installation.
2) Already have an interlock but need a mounting plate - If you already have an amGardpro interlock switch but need a mounting plate, it is easy to select one using the online configurator, which will automatically select the appropriate Eazi-fit combination.
The die cast mounting plates are very robust and can withstand a force of 10KN. They can accommodate all amGardpro configurations and are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Available in a choice of colours, the plates are pre-fitted to the interlock when ordered together, or can be ordered separately.
