Compact safety key switch to isolate power to machinery

Fortress Interlocks : 09 September, 2013  (New Product)
The SR key switch is part of Fortress’ mGard range of safety interlocks. When the key is trapped inside the SR unit the power to machinery is on, and when the key is free, power is off. This allows the person carrying the freed key to enter the machinery or guarded area safely and power is not resumed until the key is returned. This is a typical sequence and other sequences can be specified.

The key switch is heavy duty, housed in a metal enclosure which is IP rated 65/66/67. Its compact design allows the customer plenty of space for wiring, a feature not available in previous switch offerings. The switch current is 20A.
 
mGard is a range of modular trapped key products that are used to safeguard dangerous machines and hazardous processes. Individual modules can simply be added or removed depending on the application which allows flexibility and tailoring. Fortress’ mGard range of products is suitable for use in high risk applications.
