Safety switches suitable heavy duty applications
Heavy duty safety switches
Machinesafety-Shop offers a complete range of heavy duty safety interlock switches that can withstand the toughest industrial environments, can bridge misaligned machine guards and can withstand extremely high retention forces.
To help you out, Machinesafety-Shop has put together the most frequently used interlock configurations for heavy duty applications. Should you wish to deviate from these configurations, this is always possible. The amGard Pro interlock switches are fully modular, providing enormous flexibility and endless possibilities. Feel free to contact our sales team to configure the ideal safety switch for your application.
Fortress Heavy Duty safety switches the amGard Pro range
The amGard Pro range of Fortress Interlocks has been specifically developed for long term and constant use in the most challenging environments. To ensure this, the amGard Pro products have been extensively tested under the most severe industrial conditions. The robust design of the safety switches ensures that only a single device is needed to achieve the highest safety levels. Our heavy-duty safety switches from Fortress Interlocks have a protection rating up to IP65 (and IP67 depending on the design).
Modular heavy duty safety switches
The modular construction of the heavy-duty safety switches allows the functionalities to be specified according to the exact requirements of the application. The amGard Pro heavy duty safety switches are made of metal alloy and stainless steel.
The amGard Pro range of safety switches has a wide range of actuators to suit many different door types. The head and actuator of the safety switches, both made of stainless steel, ensure the unparalleled robustness of the amGard Pro safety switches. There is no better safety switch for use in harsh industrial conditions.
The locking mechanism of the amGard Pro product group has more than 200,000 unique keycodes and withstands more than 10,000N tensile force.
The amGard Pro heavy-duty safety switches can be pre-wired according to the requirements of the application to make the electrical installation as efficient as possible. Safety over Ethernet protocols can be integrated to reduce cabling requirements.
Installation accessories such as mounting plates can be used to install the heavy duty safety switches. The use of mounting plates reduces the installation to only two mountings.
Validated heavy-duty safety switches
These total safety electromechanical solutions are suitable for use in SIL3 (EN/IEC 62061), Category 4 (EN 954-1) and PLe (EN/ISO 13849-1) applications.
