LOK Link adaptor Connects Modular Safety Interlocks to Enhance Machine Safety
08 March 2013
Fortress Interlocks has introduced a new LOK Link adaptor that connects its modular mGard interlocks directly to its new amGard Pro range of LOK and Stop safety gate switch interlocks.
The ability to link the two enhances Fortress’ mechanical mGard range by adding a safety switch and direct solenoid control option to the mechanical module. This means there are several possible configurations that LOK Link provides that will enhance safety in a variety of heavy duty, industrial applications.
1LOK Link can connect stainless steel mGard headsto explosion proof locks, facilitate electrical indication of bolt position, connect a head for small radius doors and join mechanical interlocks with monitored exchange boxes and solenoid controlled exchange boxes and bolt locks.
Trapped key interlocking is a proven method of safeguarding operators and machinery. By trapping and releasing keys in a pre-determined order, safe working environments can be achieved and only then will access be granted.
Fortress’ mGardrange of robust mechanical trapped key products is a completely modular system where individual modules can simply be added or removed depending on the application.The new amGard Pro range builds on the modular, robust design of the existing amGard range but with added features that delivers new control functionality. amGard Pro is designed for heavy duty environments and the LOK Link adaptor provides customers with new configurations to suit their applications.
