Experience world-class protection and maximise uptime with the wide range of Safety Interlock Switches from Allen Bradley Guardmaster, by Rockwell Automation.
These efficient safety switches offer secure physical interlocking of machine guard doors. They are ideally suited for applications where protection of personnel is a high priority and can be used with different safety barrier types such as: sliding, hinged, and lift-off gates.
Allen Bradley Guardmaster provide a variety of options to suit your safety system requirements, with well-known ranges such as: Ferrogard, Sensaguard, Sipha, TLS-GD2, Prosafe, Cadet 3, Elf, 440G-LZ, 440G-MT, and Trojan safety interlock switches.
Many of these interlock devices can be used as part of the GuardLink Safety System.
Safety Interlock Switches are devices which work by monitoring and/or locking machine guards and doors. They are connected to the power supply of the machine to either restrict or permit power to the machine depending on whether the barrier is open or closed.
These interlock devices can be used to prevent unsafe access to hazardous areas where machinery may be in operation, helping to minimise risk of injury to personnel and damage to equipment – reducing overall downtime. They can also be used to ensure that machinery cannot start up or run while the guard door is open.
Interlock switches are often utilised in industrial applications, such as safeguarding machinery in factory production lines, in areas like automation and control, and food and beverage production. They can vary in lock type, for example: non-contact, hinge, tongue, trapped key, and guard-locking. They can also vary in maximum current and voltage, and housing material.
Allen Bradley Guardmaster Interlock Switches are made to global standards for superior stability, quality, and reliability – helping you to achieve a higher level of machine safety at a fair price.
