Gate safety covered

Fortress Interlocks has introduced an internal release (IR) adaptor for the company's amGard range of modular safety gate switches.

The IR adaptor is compatible with a Fortress Stop, a non-solenoid gate switch that will switch off the safety circuits.

The IR adaptor provides a means of escaping potentially dangerous areas such as robot cells, cold stores and warehouse bays. If a worker becomes trapped he can use the IR adaptor to unlock the door from the inside. When pressed, the button on the rear of the unit releases the tongue from the actuator head, unlocking the area. If required, the adaptor can also be used to cut the power to any dangerous machinery.
