New slimline modules for amGardpro interlock gate switch range Fortress Interlocks has added two new slimline modules to its range of amGardpro interlock safety gate switches: a slimline solenoid switch body and a slimline option pod body.

These new modules allow an even wider range of safety interlock switches to be configured for many industrial applications. The range is supplied in enclosures sealed to IP67, with a 40mm wide body, and has a retention force of 10,000N to ensure guard doors remain closed until machines and/or processes are in a safe condition. The slimline nature of the modules also means they can be easily fitted to 50mm guarding sections or where space is limited.

The amGardpro range includes solenoid and non-solenoid safety switches and many additional options, such as key control modules, internal and escape release, redundant sensors, lock out/tag out and pushbuttons, emergency stop switches and indication lights for enhanced functionality, all assembled in one device. Its robust construction makes the amGardpro suitable for industrial applications where safety, strength and reliability are of paramount importance.

According to Fortress Interlocks, amGardpro replaces all adaptions normally fitted within a guarding system, so additional hardware - like door catches, actuators, closing mechanisms, internal release mechanisms, key functions (including authorised access and deadlocks) - are no longer needed. All these separate functions can be incorporated within amGardpro configurations, resulting in an extremely versatile safety gate switch system for today's industrial environment.

The range has a modular construction for easy configuration and provides a total electromechanical product for practically any safeguarding application up to EN ISO 13849-1, Category 4, PLe (SIL3). It has also been third-party approved by TUV SUD.
