Modular safety gate system expands

20 May 2021

The modular safety gate system from Pilz now includes the PSENmlock handle module. The gate module has an integrated actuator as well as an integrated escape release.

In conjunction with the safety gate sensor PSENmlock for safe interlocking and safe guard locking, the handle module is said to offer a safe and adaptable solution for accessible gates.

Safe guard locking is enabled by the two-channel control on the guard locking device. As such, the switch is particularly suitable for use on machines with a hazardous overrun, which also require safe guard locking up to the highest category performance level e.

The PSENmlock handle module can be used for both left and right-hinged gates. It can be fitted on the inside or outside and is compatible for both swing gates and sliding gates. 

On the outside of the secured gate is the yellow handle, through which the actuator is disengaged for closing or opening. An escape release can only be triggered via the red handle in the inside. As a result, people can leave a danger zone potentially emerging inside the machinery space at any time. The PSENmlock handle module has a lockout bar for up to 5 locks. This prevents the machine from restarting unintentionally following a stop. This increases safety on accessible gates and so avoids accidents.
