Solenoid interlock has push-to-escape button on reverse

Fortress Interlocks is launching the AutoLokP (power to lock) solenoid interlock that provides a means of escape from potentially dangerous areas such as robot cells, cold stores and warehouse bays. The AutoLokP internal release option can be used to unlock the door from within a guarded area should an operative become trapped; pushing a button on the rear of the unit releases the tongue from the actuator head so that the door can be opened.

The AutoLokP solenoid is continuously energised but, when the power is cut, the actuator is released. This system is appropriate for applications when an element must be locked in a pre-determined position - such as access to the cabin of a gantry crane.

Each AutoLokP features a robust stainless steel slide bar with an actuator at the head that can be used on both hinged and sliding doors. The slide bar design ensures that the power cannot be turned on simply by slamming the door behind an operator and features padlock holes for lockout procedures and an internal release handle that acts as an emergency stop. When the door is closed the slide bar is pushed along until the actuator tongue engages with the Autostop unit, thereby turning the power on.

AutoLokP is part of the heavy-duty amGard range of products from Fortress and is suitable for safety category 4 (EN 954-1) high-risk applications.
