Slide latch added to safety interlocks

01 October 2009

The eGard Slide Latch from Fortress Interlocks is a robust door locking device, for both hinged and sliding doors, that features an integrated tongue so it can be used in conjunction with key modules, safety switches and machine control functions.

It is equipped with a self aligning actuator which works with the head bridge to realign the gate to increase robustness, allowing a misalignment tolerance of +/-7.5mm vertically and +/- 5mm horizontally. The Slide Latch handle has a built in lever to release the door lock and allows reliable actuator operation in combination with all door locking eGard configurations. The Slide Latch can easily be mounted onto current eGard configurations by simply mounting the head bridge on the existing head module.

The eGard Slide Latch is available in two versions, either with or without an internal release function that can unlock the door from the inside and prevents the operator from re-locking themselves back in; the machine can only be restarted from outside the guarded area.

The eGard Slide Latch provides easy handing and secondary action for locking and unlocking doors to safeguarded areas. It can be used in conjunction with all other eGard door locking configurations and is suitable for use in applications up to SIL3 (EN/IEC 62061), Category 4 and PLe (EN/ISO 13849-1).
