Why choose Safety Gate Switches?
Electro-mechanical safety gate switches are the ‘bread-and-butter’ devices for interlocking moveable guards on dangerous machinery and hazardous processes, directly at the point of entry. These types of switches are mounted on the guard door and are actuated by a mechanical mating piece that is common referred to as an ‘actuator.’ They monitor the position of a guard door, in conjunction with a safety control system, by preventing access into the guarded area until all hazardous machine movements have ceased operation.
amGardpro is a modular range of heavy-duty safety interlock switches from Fortress. Its unique modular design allows easy configuration and provides total electro-mechanical solutions for practically any safeguarding application up to SIL3 (EN/IEC 62061), Category 4 and PLe (EN/ISO 13849-1).
With its unrivalled design concept, the range offers fully integrated safety interlocks that can incorporate additional functionality into a single device. The amGardpro system replaces all adaptions normally fitted within a machine guarding system, such that additional hardware like door catches, actuators, closing mechanisms, and deadlocks etc, are no longer needed.
Additional funcitonality that can be built into each device includes:
- Actuators for Different Door Types
- Guard Locking Functionality
- Safety Keys for Authorised Access
- Lock-out/Tag-out Accessories
