Machine Safety with Double Door Scenes

Machine safety in logistics & distribution

Some guarded areas of production lines require the use of double doors, where an operator uses one door for entry and another to exit.

Machine safety regulations acknowledge the risk of entrapment and or accidental machine restsart using a double door system. By using the FRANK access control system in combination with safety interlocks these risks can be eliminated.

Access to the guarded area can be requested by an operator using his ID badge at the 1st access door. When the machine is isolated and the area is cleared for entrance the door can be opened. Only when the operator is logged out on the FRANK reader at the 2nd door and both doors are closed the production line can be restarted.

Access by multiple operators requires everyone to be logged out of the system before machine restart is possible.

Prevent unwanted restarts and lock-ins at double door systems with ProfiNet controlled ID badge reader and security locks.
