tGard safety interlock 
Safety interlock switch equipped
with an emergency release and push
buttons for request and reset.

As long as the door is open the double
safety contacts are switched so that the
machine cannot be started.

To enter the zone an access request
is made by means of the push button
on the safety switch. After the lead time
of the conveyor has elapsed, the magnetic
coil is energized and the door can be opened.

Machine guarding
Machine guardings prevents
physical access to the conveyors.

Because the safety switch is
is equipped with an emergency
release can be used at any time
(also during calamities) can be used
to open the door from the
from the inside.
Also when the switch is locked.

Access can be required to clear blockages, or during maintenance and cleaning activities. By using safety interlocks at the doors, access is only possible after the power supply is isolated and the run down time has elapsed. By adding controls to the safety switch it is possible operate access request, reset and e-stop directly at the door. Including an escape release mechanism allows any operator to exit to guarded area if needed.

tGard allows for including access request, reset and e-stop to be configurated in one safety interlock.
